SOS Help For Emotions: Managing Anxiety, Anger, and Depression (an adult self-help book in 7 languages) and SOS Help For Parents (in 11 languages) are two books that I have written based on my professional experience and on research studies of others.
I live in Bowling Green, Kentucky and am Professor Emeritus of Psychology at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky where I taught in the Department of Psychology for over 30 years. Also, I have taught counseling courses in Germany and Italy as an Adjunct Professor of Education for Boston University. For a year I traveled the country giving seminars for mental health professionals and educators.
I have used most all of the techniques described in SOS Help For Parents with my own two sons as they were growing up. When they were older, I taught them the principles of cognitive behavior therapy (including the ABC's of Emotions), now described in SOS Help For Emotions.
My professional experience includes work in community mental health centers, hospitals, counseling centers, and community agencies. I am licensed as a clinical psychologist in Kentucky. Also, I am listed in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology and am a member of the American Psychological Association, Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, and Association for Behavior Analysis.
My Ph.D. is in Counseling Psychology from The University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, a program approved by the American Psychological Association. I received traineeship and internship training in Veterans Hospitals in Topeka, Kansas, Leavenworth, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri. SOS Programs & Parents Press is a publishing company which I founded.
SOS Programs & Parents Press publishes SOS books and programs for adults, older teens, parents of young children, mental health professionals, and educators to help improve emotions and behavior. SOS programs for both laypersons and mental health professionals include books, DVDs, CDs, and self-help resources. These programs and resources are derived from evidence-based techniques and principles of behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and additional approaches for improving emotions and behavior.
My professional interests include teaching, offering seminars, helping children and adults, behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, etc. Additional interests include travel, canoeing, snorkeling, hiking, and Corvettes.
The DVD SOS Help For Parents, an educational program that I produced, is used by many educators and mental health professionals and is in four languages. Currently, I am producing "DVD SOS Help For Emotions: Managing Anxiety, Anger, And Depression With Cognitive Behavior Therapy." It is intended for adults, teens, educators, and mental health professionals.
