by Albert Ellis, PhD, Overcoming Resistance Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Overcoming Resistance books, With a new foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, St. John's University "Albert Ellis has written many books on his favorite topic Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Although he writes on that topic very well, he often does not write about generic psychotherapy. REBT is an integrative form of psychotherapy. Following this model, psychotherapists can incorporate many diverse techniques and strategies to change clients' dysfunctional behaviors and emotionsÖ. Much of what Al identifies as good REBT in this book is just good psychotherapy. Because people so universally identify Al with REBT, people may generally overlook his wisdom as a clinician. Having worked with Al for more than thirty years, I have been fortunate enough to learn from him. Much of the knowledge I learned from Al and cherish the most is not necessarily about REBT theory. They concern wise ways of thinking about clinical problems. That is why, out of all Al's books, this is my favorite. This is Al Ellis, the clinician." -- From the Foreword by Raymond DiGiuseppe, PhD, ScD, Director of Professional Education, Albert Ellis Institute; Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, St. John's University Now available in an affordable paperback, this edition takes a look at the underlying causes of resisting cognitive-emotional-behavioral change and the methods used to overcome them. Written in present-action language, Ellis gives an overview of the basic principles of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Ellis charts the changes in the field that have taken place in the 20 years leading up to 2002, when this edition was originally published. The book also integrates recent therapies into REBT, including psychotherapy, solution-focused therapy, and recent findings of experimental psychology.

by James Crone, How Can We Solve Our Social Problems Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format.

I could envision using Crone's book in break out discussion groups for a large class. Many of the discussion questions would also be suitable as essay or short answer questions for examinations or writing assignments. Overall, Crone has produced a volume that will introduce students to the linkages between social problems and social theory and to thinking sociologically about social problems.' Ã¹TEACHING SOCIOLOGYÃ¡How Can We Solve Our Social Problems? discusses how we can take specific, realistic steps to solve a number of the worldÃ†s social problems.

The suggestions in this book help students realize that we can take actionÃ¹we can take steps to solve our social problems. Key Features:Ã¡Ã¡ Presents a theory of conflict and social change: The author introduces his own theory replete with theoretical propositions and causal model so readers can more readily see the process of a social problem and where it is along the path of being solved. Gives students studying social problems a sense of hope: Realistic suggestions help readers realize that a number of tangible steps can be taken to solve or at least ameliorate our social problems. Examines eleven specific social problems in American society: The book examines such issues as poverty, racial and ethnic inequality, unequal education, environmental problems, and much more, and illustrates how solving one social problem can also help ameliorate another social problem. Encourages students to think sociologically: While each social problem described is tied back to a theoretical perspective, students are encouraged to gain an appreciation of how social conditions greatly affect what we think, what we believe, and how we act.
