It provides a complete resource to help the discharged worker achieve and keep their next position. FINDING A JOB IS HARD WORK. It has been estimated that as many as one out of every three workers attempts to change jobs annually in the United States. Out of a labor force of 153 million, that represents almost 50,000,000 job seekers who are seeking new employment each year. As a result, the job search process is highly competitive at all levels. It can be lengthy, frustrating, prejudicial, and unfair. Older, more traditional job finding techniques have become less productive. The traditional resume no longer has the same impact in generating the all important and often elusive interview. Both the Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY have highlighted the fact that only about 15% of all professionals find a new position through responding to published advertisements or online postings, another 10% through placement agencies or search firms, and only 5% through unsolicited direct mail. Why then, would anyone focus 90% of their time and effort in areas that represent only about 30% of all potential opportunities? It is not uncommon for 200-300 people to respond to help wanted advertisements. Yet seldom do more than 6 to 10 people achieve interviews, and after an often lengthy process, only one person gets the job. Everyone else starts the whole process again. Older Americans, women, and minorities can often face an even more difficult road due to unspoken, but ever-present biases. There is a better way. Tomorrow Is Today dispels the myth that the most qualified candidate always gets the job. It points out that the person who is hired is usually the one who is liked the best. This book can be a major factor in how you differentiate yourself from other candidates when the hiring decision is almost always based upon subjective factors such as the individual’s personality style, body language, and manner of being interviewed. It is an invaluable resource in helping you to achieve your next position with added features that assist in effectively managing both career growth and family issues.
Description : Although the symptoms of personality disorders may differ widely in shape and scope, they are almost always treated with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This is because all ten personality disorders are characterized by rigid thought and behavior patterns, and most people with these disorders suffer from similar types of ongoing conflict and instability in many aspects of their lives. Packed with exercises and worksheets, The Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Workbook for Personality Disorders presents a series of eight social skills and coping skills readers can learn and practice to overcome their personality disorder. First, readers learn to get reactivated in life and correct the self-defeating thoughts that hold them back. Then they learn a series of relaxation, visualization, and imagery techniques to confront their fears. Finally, readers practice real-life exposure to those fears and develop additional communication, emotion regulation, and coping skills to keep their personality-disorder-related behaviors in check. This workbook is the ideal resource for readers who suffer from any of the ten personality disorders: paranoid personality disorder; schizoid personality disorder; schizotypal personality disorder; histrionic personality disorder; narcissistic personality disorder; antisocial personality disorder; borderline personality disorder; avoidant personality disorder; dependent personality disorder; and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.

Description : The obesity epidemic is one of the most serious public health threats confronting the nation and the world. The majority of overweight individuals want to lose weight, but the overall success of self-administered diets and commercial weight loss programs is very poor. Scientific findings suggest that the problem boils down to adherence. The dietary and physical activity recommendations that weight loss programs promote are effective; however, people have difficulty initiating and maintaining changes. Effective Weight Loss presents 25 detailed sessions of an empirically supported, cognitive-behavioral treatment package called Acceptance-Based Behavioral Treatment (ABT). The foundation of this approach is comprised of the nutritional, physical activity, and behavioral components of the most successful, gold-standard behavioral weight loss programs. These components are synthesized with acceptance, willingness, behavioral commitment, motivation, and relapse prevention strategies drawn from a range of therapies. ABT is based on the idea that specialized self-control skills are necessary for weight control, given our innate desire to consume delicious foods and to conserve energy by avoiding physical activity. These self-control skills revolve around a willingness to choose behaviors that may be perceived as uncomfortable, for the sake of a more valuable objective. The Clinician Guide is geared towards helping administer treatment, and the companion Workbook provides summaries of session content, exercises, worksheets, handouts, and assignments for patients and clients receiving the treatment. The books will appeal to psychologists, primary care physicians, nutritionists, dieticians, and other clinicians who counsel the overweight.
