More About the Author

My passion for writing a stress mastery series of books stems from my professional speaking career. Following years of teaching in the psychology departments of several universities, I decided to take my message on the road. For more than 25 years, I have been providing keynote presentations and workshops to hundreds of audiences, from Miami to Malaysia. Attendees constantly asked me for take-home materials to practice the techniques I taught them in my speeches, so I began to produce documents for them.

Then, in 2009, when I keynoted the National Association of Elementary School Principals convention, a representative of the largest publisher of educational books was in the audience and told me how badly educators around the U.S. needed to hear my message. Consequently, I wrote "The Teacher's Ultimate Stress Mastery Guide" in 2011.

In 2013, I was contacted by the past president of the New South Wales Australia Financial Advisor's Association after he read some articles I published about helping advisors overcome the stressors that impacted them since the economic meltdown of 2008. We developed an audio stress mastery program for financial advisors that became very popular, and this became the genesis of my latest book, "The Financial Advisor's Ultimate Stress Mastery Guide."

As a practicing Clinical/Sport and Industrial/Organizational Psychologist, I have spent my 30+ year career teaching companies, sales staffs, CEOs, elite athletes, doctors, lawyers, and yes, even Indian chiefs how to overcome the stressors in their lives and on their jobs. Although my first two books are directed toward educators and financial advisors, respectively, the 77 prescriptions I provide for overcoming stress actually apply to everyone, regardless of their profession. My goal for teaching stress mastery skills is to ultimately help all of my readers add life to their years, and years to their lives!

Jack Singer's THE TEACHER'S ULTIMATE STRESS MASTERY GUIDE provides a fine survey of teacher stress and how to handle it and should be a 'must' for any education collection. From preventing stress to boosting psychological immunity, this offers action plans from real-world scenarios and from teachers who have conquered their own stress.
