Publisher Comments:

Effective communication is a critical skill that influences your professional success, the stability of your family life, and your personal happiness. Your ability to communicate effectively is seriously hampered if you can't assert yourself constructively. If you've ever felt paralyzed by an imposing individual or strongly argued opposing point of view, you know that a lack of assertiveness can leave you feeling marginalized and powerless. The Assertiveness Workbook contains effective, cognitive behavioral techniques to help you become more assertive. Learn how to set and maintain personal boundaries without becoming inaccessible. Become more genuine and open in relationships without fearing attack. Defend yourself when you are criticized or asked to submit to unreasonable requests.

This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

Synopsis:

This self-directed program teaches readers to speak up and say what they mean at work and at home. Written supportively, it uses proven cognitive behavioral techniques to help individuals build self-confidence, set boundaries, and determine appropriate responses. 10 charts.

Synopsis:

Private Practice Made Simple is a complete practical guide to starting and maintaining a successful mental health therapy and coaching practice. Written in an entertaining, lighthearted style, this book covers everything from making the decision to open a private practice to preventing burnout once the practice begins to thrive.

Synopsis:

Start and Run Your Own Private Therapy Practice

Running your own private practice takes more than an advanced degree, memberships in professional psychology organizations, and the ability to be a good therapist. And while your continuing education and training may be useful, setting up and managing a successful practice is a matter of business and organizational know-how as much as professional proficiency.

If you're opening your own private practice or want to run your existing practice more efficiently, Private Practice Made Simple is your detailed guide. This book offers tips on everything from getting client referrals and creating a positive and comfortable office atmosphere to building a strong and thriving therapy practice that can serve both you and your clients. You'll learn how to attract clients as a new therapist and how to manage your practice as it grows.

    This complete tool kit will help you:
  • Find an office and set up a treatment room
  • Establish headache-free routines for organizing client information and forms
  • Decide on a fee and manage your finances
  • Prevent burnout by maintaining a healthy work-life balance

Synopsis:

This step-by-step guide uses cognitive-behavioural techniques to help the reader suffering from assertiveness problems to set realistic personal boundaries and transform interpersonal styles. Real-life examples, checklists and exercises and supplemented with support and encouragement.
