Taking Control presents a new approach to personal control and stress management based on Rational Emotive
and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, in particular, REBT's application to personal development and workplace issues known as Rational Effectiveness Training. |
Why another book on stress management?
After all, aren't there enough already? Well, the problem is, many people read books on stress management, or do (often expensive) training seminars, but fail to put into practice what they have learned. The author has counselled with many people who have learned how to manage their time, assert themselves, relax or problem-solve - but gave up using their new skills within a short time.
This is where Taking Control comes in. As you will see from the chapter listings below, Taking Control covers the same ground (and more) as do many other stress management books; but goes further to show why people give up - and, more importantly, how the blocks can be overcome using the principles of Rational Effectiveness Training.
Most significantly, Taking Control shows how you can take personal control over the most important aspect of your life: you. When you have control over your own emotions and responses, you will have a much better chance of taking control over your life in general.
