Simple, Effective Techniques for Overcoming Traumatic Stress Symptoms
Author: Mary Beth Williams
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
In the third edition of The PTSD Workbook, psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula offer readers the most effective tools available for overcoming post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is an extremely debilitating condition that can occur after exposure to a terrifying event. But whether you’re a veteran of war, a victim of domestic violence or sexual violence, or have been involved in a natural disaster, crime, car accident, or accident in the workplace, your symptoms may be getting in the way of you living your life. PTSD can often cause you to relive your traumatic experience in the form of flashbacks, memories, nightmares, and frightening thoughts. This is especially true when you are exposed to events or objects that remind you of your trauma. Left untreated, PTSD can lead to emotional numbness, insomnia, addiction, anxiety, depression, and even suicide. So, how can you start to heal and get your life back? In The PTSD Workbook, Third Edition, psychologists and trauma experts Mary Beth Williams and Soili Poijula outline techniques and interventions used by PTSD experts from around the world to conquer distressing trauma-related symptoms. In this fully revised and updated workbook, you’ll learn how to move past the trauma you’ve experienced and manage symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, and flashbacks. Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this book is extremely accessible and easy to use, offering evidence-based therapy at a low cost. This new edition features chapters focusing on veterans with PTSD, the link between cortisol and adrenaline and its role in PTSD and overall mental health, and the mind-body component of PTSD. Clinicians will also find important updates reflecting the new DSM-V definition of PTSD. This book is designed to give you the emotional resilience you need to get your life back together after a traumatic event.
Public administration is a craft that demands real-world application of concepts and theories often learned in a classroom. Yet many students find it difficult to make the leap from theory to practice completely unaided. The Public Administration Workbook, 8e is specifically designed with the theoretically-grounded, practice-minded student in mind. It reviews scholarship in political science, law, industrial psychology, and the sociology of organizations and then allows students to see how these intellectual fields inform the analytical and managerial tasks that comprise public administration. Where standard public administration textbooks examine the nature of public agencies and explain how bureaucracies relate to other institutions, this workbook promotes a more effective way of learning—by doing—and more directly prepares those who will pursue careers in public agencies. Each chapter begins with a discussion of relevant concepts and scholarship before moving into a hands-on exercise analyzing core analytical and management challenges. This edition includes an all-new exercise on contract negotiation, many international examples interwoven throughout the book, and a fully updated HRM section to reflect alternative ranking and compensation systems. Each chapter is further supported by a detailed Instructor’s Manual written by the author to guide instructors on solutions, explanations, and ideas for using or modifying the exercises to fit a variety of course needs, as well as downloadable datasets and exercises, providing students with a unique opportunity to apply and test classroom concepts outside of the job.

A Guide to Coping with the Grief, Stress and Anger that Trigger Addictive Behaviors
Author: Rebecca E. Williams
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
Most addictive behavior is rooted in some type of loss, be it the death of a loved one, coming to terms with limitations set by chronic health problems, or the end of a relationship. By turning to drugs and alcohol, people who have suffered a loss can numb their grief. In the process, they postpone their healing and can drive themselves further into addiction. The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction offers readers an effective program for working through their addiction and grief with cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Created by a psychologist who works for the Department of Veterans Affairs and a marriage and family therapist who works for Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, this mindfulness training workbook is effective for treating the emotion dysregulation, stress, depression, and grief that lie at the heart of addiction. No matter the loss, the mindfulness skills in this workbook help readers process their grief, determine the function their addiction is serving, and replace the addiction with healthy coping behaviors.

"The work included provides a dynamic cross section of the publicly consumed reading material available today. The startling breadth of subject matter, informational complexity, creative effort, and visual diversity illustrate the challenges that publication designers face everyday. Through close-up examinations of beautiful and effective design solutions and the comprehensive and accessible workshop-style format, readers will develop a clear understanding of necessary, and often elusive, design principles. Fundamentals of form and content are clearly demonstrated with the aid of diagrams, making this the most complete book for designers on applied publication design principles."--BOOK JACKET.
This book has been called a Workbook to make it clear from the start that it is not a conventional textbook. Conventional textbooks proceed by giving in each section or chapter first the definitions of the terms to be used, the concepts they are to work with, then some theorems involving these terms (complete with proofs) and finally some examples and exercises to test the readers' understanding of the definitions and the theorems. Readers of this book will indeed find all the conventional constituents--definitions, theorems, proofs, examples and exercises but not in the conventional arrangement. In the first part of the book will be found a quick review of the basic definitions of general topology interspersed with a large num ber of exercises, some of which are also described as theorems. (The use of the word Theorem is not intended as an indication of difficulty but of importance and usefulness. ) The exercises are deliberately not "graded"-after all the problems we meet in mathematical "real life" do not come in order of difficulty; some of them are very simple illustrative examples; others are in the nature of tutorial problems for a conven tional course, while others are quite difficult results. No solutions of the exercises, no proofs of the theorems are included in the first part of the book-this is a Workbook and readers are invited to try their hand at solving the problems and proving the theorems for themselves.
Workbook to Accompany: Physics for Students of Science and Engineering is 25-chapter workbook designed to accompany the Physics for Students of Science and Engineering textbook. This workbook is a collection of question and problems that are representative of the topics covered in the textbook. The format of this workbook is based on individual chapters of the textbook. The questions and problems associated with each chapter begin with a one-page review of the definitions, units, and simple relationships appropriate to that chapter. Each review, in the form of questions and one-step problems, is followed by more comprehensive problems, formatted one to a page. Each problem is stated at the top of a page, and the student is provided space to execute each element of the problem-solving procedure. A detailed solution to each problem is presented in the same form, such as in the format of the problem solving procedure, on the reverse side of the page. The solution page often includes comments and suggestions appropriate to the specific type of problem being considered. The opening chapters include discussions on particle kinematics and dynamics; applications of Newton’s laws; and work, power, and energy. The subsequent chapters explore the concepts of momentum, collisions, rotational motion, oscillations, mechanics of fluids, heat, and thermodynamics. Other chapters examine the principles of electric charge, electric fields, electric potential, capacitance, current, resistance, direct-current circuits, magnetic fields, and electromagnetic oscillations. The remaining chapters deal with wave motion, sound, geometric and physical optics, special relativity, early quantum physics, and wave mechanics. This workbook will be of great benefit to physics teachers and students.
