The Courage to Actively Care: Cultivating a Culture of Interpersonal Compassion
By E. Scott Geller (Author), Dave Johnson (Foreword) The lead character in this realistic story, a safety professional for a large manufacturing company, is bullied by her boss, and she searches to find the courage to confront him. In her search she learns from Dr. Pitz ("Doc") the five person-states that influence one’s propensity to actively care for the safety, health, or welfare of other people. With her coworker, Jeff, Joanne entertains ways to enhance these five person- states: self-esteem, self-efficacy, optimism, belongingness, and personal control. With this profound knowledge she eventually confronts her boss and teaches him how to be an actively caring for people leader. About the Author: E.

The Home Token Economy
The Home Token Economy by J. R. Alvord & C. D. Cheney DON'T IGNORE YOUR CHILD! Catch'em being good-and let'em know. The Home Token Economy is a flexible and adaptive incentive program that works well with the family management style of many parents. A Home Token Economy is a miniature economic system for the family, where family members earn tokens for behaving appropriately and exchange those tokens for desirable things and activities. This system will help you to attend to the critical features of your children's and your own behavior and how each effects the other. You can have your Home Token Economy in place and running within an hour after reading this manual. Furthermore, you can quickly tell if the system is working, and, if it isn't, you can make adjustments to ensure that it does work. The Home Token Economy is different from many self help books available, because it provides the means by which you can determine the effectiveness of your program and the steps you can take to ensure that it works for you in your home.

The Motivation to Actively Care
This refreshing teaching/learning narrative, based on actual life events and research-supported principles, begins with the lead character (Joanne Cruse) losing her job as the Safety Director for a large manufacturing company. Subsequently, her former psychology professor, Dr. Pitz ("Doc"), invites her to try out for a position as leadership consultant with his firm, Make-A-Difference, Inc. (MAD) that helps companies cultivate a self-motivated and personally-engaged workforce. Throughout her probationary period, Joanne travels with the top consultant at MAD (Mickey Vasquez) to visit a number of organizations struggling with various occupational issues related to the human dynamics of self-motivation (i.e., working to accomplish an organization's milestone from a self-directed or self-accountability mindset). The interpersonal and group interactions Joanne experiences at diverse organizations, accompanied by Mickey’s professional coaching, reveal twenty practical and profound leadership lessons to nurture an actively caring for people work culture in which employees put forth their best efforts on behalf of their company's mission.

The Science and Fiction of Autism
ISBN-10: 0674025695 | ISBN-13: 978-0674025691 | Publication Date: September 30, 2007 | Edition: 1 Autism is a complex and incurable constellation of bizarre behaviors, impaired cognition, limited language, and most distressingly, a lack of responsiveness to other people, and it has been the center of impassioned debates for decades. What is it? What causes it? How can it be treated? In The Science and Fiction of Autism, one of the country's leading experts in behavioral treatments approaches autism through the context of its controversies, showing where extraordinary and unfounded claims have falsely raised hopes, stirred fears, and ruined lives. Arguing that autism is an entirely biological disorder, however complex its neurological origins, Laura Schreibman lays waste to the beliefs that it is caused by "refrigerator mothers" or the MMR vaccine, as well as to the simplistic claims that it can be cured by a variety of unsubstantiated treatments. Drawing from her own long clinical experience with autistic children and their parents, Schreibman arms her readers--students, educators, psychologists, and parents alike--with information and arguments to deal with the onslaught of good, bad, deficient, and irrelevant ideas about autism

Verplanck Glossary/Thesauruswith Psychology on a Disk andSociology on a DiskCD-ROM
Verplanck Glossary/Thesaurus with Psychology on a Disk and Sociology on a Disk (CD-ROM) The first published version of William S. Verplanck's Glossary/Thesaurus project appeared in a 1957 supplement to the Psychological Review: A glossary of some terms used in the Objective Science of Behavior, Volume 64, #6, Part II. Verplanck has since increased the size of his glossary to well beyond 3,000 terms, and an expandable web version is under development by Verplanck and an editorial committee in cooperation with the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies (www.behavior.org) and the Archives of the History of American Psychology, University of Akron (www.uakron.edu/ahap/). The fully developed version will allow the addition of new terms, commentary on existing terms, and the linking of terms to those in other glossaries. In the interim, CMS Software is privileged to make available both the 1957 and the 2000 versions of the Verplanck Glossary/Thesaurus, in rich text format, as a component of its CD-ROM edition of Psychology on a Disk and Sociology on a Disk. The glossary is searchable by term or by thesaurus index number. Both scholars and students will find Verplanck's definitions and commentaries on a broad range of terms in the behavioral sciences not only scholarly and informative but also incisive and witty. As it stands, the Glossary organizes virtually the entire field of psychology from a behavioral perspective. It will continue to grow once it is in place on the web. Meanwhile, here is the current version, conveniently accessible on a single CD-ROM disk. ISBN 0-922077-30-4Published by CMS Academic Software (2000)
