I was hired by a major university to teach recently released offenders how to become employed. I walked into my first class intending to follow the lead of all the other job training programs in the city, which was teaching the students to properly fill out applications, write resumes, facilitate mock interviews, and locate employment opportunities. After the first couple of classes, most of the students were either not paying attention or sleeping. I quickly realized my presentation needed to be interesting, challenging, beneficial, and actually guide the participants on how to remain employed. However, I was unable to find any published material for teaching new hires the soft skills necessary to keep a job. This workbook is a compilation of the soft skills class material I have developed over an eighteen year period. I have used this material with great success and have taught soft skills in schools, inner-city church programs, nonprofits, and government funded job training programs. It is a unique collection of essays, exercises, quotes, and maxims that will give students a realistic perspective on work-related expectations and the expectations of the supervisors who hire them. It will help students develop their problem solving skills, guide them in making appropriate decisions, and create a desire to plan out goals and achieve them. The workbook style is challenging and playful, serious and engaging and a stepping stone to developing the cognitive skills necessary to quash unproductive thinking and self-defeating emotional behaviors.

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.

The first volume of the series, Maintaining Focus, Energy, and Options Over the Career, examines how individuals enact and keep their career vital over their work life. Awardingwinning, internationally renowned researchers, including Daniel Feldman, Jennifer Deal, Phyllis Tharenou, and Terry Beehr examine the dynamic nature of contemporary careers and how careers change as individuals change in response to such factors as aging, learning, experience or contextual changes. Volume 1 includes theoretical perspectives on maintaining personenvironment “fit” over the course of the career, the shifting constellation of developmental relationships over time and place, a new framework for examining midcareer renewal, a reconceptualization of the retirement transition, and potential gender differences in selfinitiated international careers. Empirical studies in volume 1 examine provocative questions including: Is the traditional career really dead? Are there significant generational differences in learning and development? Can career plateauing be positive for the individual or the organization? The focus throughout this volume is on how careers unfold over time and how individuals remain productive and successful as they navigate career changes.
