When they were first released in the 1980s, Janet Woititz's groundbreaking works, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Struggle for Intimacy and The Self-Sabotage Syndrome, provided a new message of hope to adult children who had grown up in the shadow of alcoholic parents. Their message today is as profound and timeless as it was two decades ago. Now, in this complete collection, readers will learn again the insight and healing power of Janet Wotitiz's words. The Complete ACoA Sourcebook is a compilation of three of Dr. Woititz's classic books, addressing head-on the symptoms of The Adult Children of Alcoholics syndrome and providing strategies for living a normal life as an adult. Readers will find help for themselves: at home, in intimate relationships and on the job. They will discover the reasons for the way they think, believe and feel about themselves; ACoAs often feel isolated, have difficulty in relationships, in the workplace and in feeling good about themselves. Readers who are familiar with Woititz's work will find wisdom once again in this classic collection. Those new to ACoA will gain fresh insight into their behavior patterns and find an avenue for self-love and healing. Noted ACoA expert Dr. Robert Ackerman, author of the best-selling Perfect Daughters and Silent Sons, provides a foreword and explains why Janet Woititz's message will continue to help millions of readers for generations to come.

According to a recent study, there is a 40% failure rate among executives in the U.S. today. To combat the difficulties inherent in assuming high-level corporate roles companies are using new tools to help executives achieve maximum effectiveness, including the hiring of an executive coach. This unique book, written by a trained psychologist and executive coach with decades of experience as a business executive, offers a step-by-step guide to the practice of executive coaching. Using actual case studies, the author builds a multidimensional approach to coaching; clients are encouraged to look at multiple forces in their lives, including the Individual and the Organization, Unconscious Forces, Multi-Level Forces, and their Use of Self. Examining each force then guides the executive coach in joint goal setting, commitment to a coaching contract, meeting objectives, evaluating outcomes, and concluding the coaching process. Written specifically for graduate students--of applied psychology and related disciplines--who wish to practice executive coaching, this text will enlighten anyone in business who would like to use executive coaching to improve his or her organization.

We live in a complex world filled with materialism and ego-driven needs, disconnected from our source. Time is speeding up as we rush about frantically, stuck in a race. We are enslaved by our conditioned minds, victims to a limited, subjective perception of life. We’ve drifted away from harmonious coexistence with nature, spirit, and one another and are plagued by imbalance, unhappiness, and disease. But our souls are ever present, calling us home, and it is through encountering illness, loss, and adversity that we can transform and find our way to hope, love, and peace. Klara was one such being, empty and exhausted, running on autopilot and entirely missing the present moment. She has lived through trauma and chronic stress and became absorbed by illness, struggling with fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome. But the more the darkness set in, the stronger her desire for freedom became, bringing to light the secrets of healing. Come discover a passionate journey to self-discovery and healing. Reconnect with faith, love, self-compassion, and, most of all, your soul. Come see that freedom and joy is possible. Become inspired to begin an authentic path of healing of your own and reclaim your passion for life.

I have not had a student complain about reading this text!!"" -Sandy Cook-Fong, University of Nebraska at Kearney " " ""The text examples/cases are candid representations of child welfare systems, client and/or service circumstances, and other valuable case histories that provide students the ability to develop professional competence and personal integrity....As an instructor and professional within the human service field, this text has become a valuable reference and resource tool for myself and my students."" -Kathleen M. Gutowski, Baker College ""Strengths: accessibility of material, suitability for BSW [students], cases geared to generalist agency practice, comprehensive, but not overwhelming, holistic orientation."
