More About the Author

An ongoing thread in my personal and professional education and training has been an interest in how the mind and body work together in creating high level health. I have studied Eastern and Western approaches to creating high-level health and incorporate both in my writing and work with students and clients. My approach to health coaching integrates such diverse modalities as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, physical activity, meditation, relaxation training, and Naikan self-reflection.

I have a doctorate in health education, a masters degree in counseling, and a bachelor's degree in psychology. As a Board Certified Coach (BCC), Counselor (NCC), and Health Education Specialist (CHES) I have been able to take the best from each of these helping professions and mold them into a unique approach to helping people reach their goals and maximize their potential.

In addition to my coaching practice, I am a full-time tenured university professor with over 25 years of experience teaching stress management, human sexuality, health counseling, and a host of other subjects in person and at a distance. I am the author of four textbooks, four self-help books, and several journal articles. Writing is a passion of mine that is a natural extension of my work with clients and students.

My personal interests are fitness (swimming, rowing, biking, weight training, basketball), hiking and anything that gets me outdoors. I like to canoe and kayak and play tennis with Heidi, my wife of 40 years. I also like to read, cook, travel (especially to visit my sons), and learn new things as often as possible.

I am an avid watcher of sunsets, sunrises, and clouds>

The book Coping with Stress in a Changing World by Richard Blonna was required reading for a college class on Stress Management I recently took. I have read many, many books on stress management and related topics over the years, so I was quite curious what this book would contain.

The book is fairly large format - 8.5" x nearly 11" - and it's three color - black, white, and rose. I.e. it's not a full color textbook. Even so, they are charging the high price that one associates with a dense, colored textbook - while providing information I find in just about every stress book I read. Certainly the information is *good* - but I'm not sure it's good enough to cost ten times the price of similar books.

The book begins with a background on what stress is about, and different research views on the causes and pathways of stress. It goes into issues of stress in the workplace, including ergonomic issues and noise. It talks about the nervous system, how stress affects the immune system, and why managing stress is so important. Then it launches into a few sections on practical tips for handling stress. How to be mindful. How to manage time. How to meditate.

Absolutely I do feel that all of these are important. I'm a strong proponent of learning to handle life gently and to be aware of one's limitations. Again, though, I read this same information in countless other books. I'm not sure I'm finding why this book costs so much more - except that they "can" because college students are being required to purchase it. I just don't find that to be a valuable argument.

I wish professors would look at the wealth of other options out there, and choose from them.

I have found this book to be incredibly informative. A lot of personal assessment involved. Very eye opening. I understand why my Professor makes this a requirement.
