Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adulthood is a prevalent and impairing disorder. While medications have been effective in treating adult ADHD, the majority of individuals treated with medications still have symptoms that require additional skills and symptom management strategies. This Second Edition of Mastering Your Adult ADHD is thoroughly updated to present the most current, empirically supported treatment strategies in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for coping with symptoms of adult ADHD. The Therapist Guide provides clinicians with effective means of teaching adult clients skills that have been scientifically tested and shown to help them cope with ADHD. The program has been updated to include the optional use of technology and smart phones to improve organization and planning. Core modules cover the development of systems for keeping track of appointments and tasks, reducing distractibility, and improving adaptive thinking skills, and there's an optional module on reducing procrastination. Information is also provided regarding holding an informational meeting with a spouse, partner, or family member. The step-by-step, session-by-session descriptions are a practical resource for therapists who deliver the treatment. The companion Client Workbook contains all of the necessary information for participating in the practical CBT intervention. It includes worksheets, forms, and a link to an assessment measure that can be used to gauge progress during treatment.

It means hanging in there and continuing to function even when you look and feel foolish--and then rolling back up....

Everyone has had luminous moments — those instances when we experience the beauty and grace of life, whether we’re looking into the eyes of a newborn or watching the sun set over the ocean. But those moments are usually brief and difficult to consciously create. Many of us have been successful in attaining personal and professional goals, but we’re too exhausted to enjoy what we’ve accomplished. Or we might walk around in a fog, feeling vaguely frustrated, resigned, or cynical and asking all the wrong questions about how to make our lives better. In either case, we miss the purpose of being alive: to wake up and fully become ourselves, to allow others to contribute to us and, in turn, to contribute our gifts to the world — fully savoring the journey along the way. This fascinating new book gives us specific methods for bringing luminosity into our lives on a consistent basis, allowing us to view the world with much younger, more vibrant eyes. Mastering Life’s Energies shows us how to use all the energies of our lives — physical vitality, creativity, time, money, enjoyment, and relationship — to realize our goals and dreams and, even more important, live a luminous life, filled with possibility and promise.

I wanted to create a work that would make comprehensive easy to read and hard hitting for Christian Leaders that could bring us back to our first love. My second goal was to compile a work that would help Christian leaders become effective leaders by forming a philosophy for life and for ministry congruent to the will of God for their lives. I hope to accomplish these goals within the contents of this book. The book is insightful in many ways such as the importance of the Church as a critical part of secular society and mental health as a pathology that needs to be mitigated even among the constituents of the Church. Unfortunately erroneous practices, beliefs, behaviors and teachings had to be addressed because I believe many people will come to their senses about given subjects if they receive proper explanations. A logical and scriptural perspective is given in order to help some get on track with regards to their beliefs, philosophy and actions. Hot topics discussed are Ephesians 4:11 endowments of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. A special chapter is dedicated to the role of women in the Church which unfortunately is a topic that is still a concern for many Christians around the world. There are concepts that are presented that all work towards bringing an individual to full order and to full congruence with the will of God for Leaders. An awareness to the importance of feeding sheep is a central topic of this 269 page hand book for all Christian leaders that emphasizes the God given responsibility for Pastors and leaders that are non-negotiable. Every Christian leader must read this book before assuming ministry, during ministry and after ministry to review their performance awaiting the day when Jesus will hand out rewards for service especially crowns designated specifically for leaders who were faithful. There is so much more such as how to feed sheep and what diet is essential such as when feeding sheep we must feed a good balance of both the word and the anointing to achieve full spiritual health. We discuss the importance of the local Church and what research says about the congregation we speak to each time services are held. You may be surprised at the needs that are present each time you speak and the responsibility you have to be a vessel through whom God can do an actual intervention into the life of an attendee to prevent misfortune. You wont be disappointed. Every seminary, bible college, and Church must make this book a part of their curriculum, required reading and library.
