This book is written in the belief that many teachers feel overworked and under stress, and it attempts to address both issues. What may seem remarkable is that it is possible to reduce both workload and stress and do a better job. This is achievable because:
as teachers, we frequently do a lot of unnecessary work.
students can take on responsibility for much of that work.
it is in the students’ own interest to do so.
action at the right moment can save effort and time later on.
The MINIMAX approach aims to increase efficiency by reducing teacher input in the interests of both teacher and student, in such a way that the students learn more effectively by being more involved in their learning. In the extreme, it implies getting the maximum from the minimum.

Deaf People and Society incorporates multiple perspectives related to the topics of psychology, education, and sociology, including the viewpoints of deaf adults themselves. In doing so, it considers the implications of what it means to be deaf or hard of hearing and how deaf adults’ lives are impacted by decisions that professionals make, whether in the clinic, the school, or when working with family. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and offers current perspectives on the following topics:
Etiologies of deafness and the identification process
The role of auditory access
Cognition, language, communication, and literacy
Bilingual, bilingual/bimodal, and monolingual approaches to language learning
Educational, legal, and placement aspects
Childhood psychological issues
Psychological and sociological viewpoints of deaf adults
The criminal justice system and deaf people
Psychodynamics of interaction between deaf and hearing people
Each chapter begins with a set of objectives and concludes with suggested readings for further research. This edition contains 10 new and original case studies, including ones on hearing children of deaf adults, sudden hearing loss, a young deaf adult with mental illness, and more. Written by a seasoned deaf/hearing bilingual team, this unique text continues to be the go-to resource for students and future professionals interested in working with deaf and hard-of-hearing persons.

If you struggle with low self-esteem, or you’re seeking positive and effective ways of building a healthy sense of self-worth, this much-anticipated fourth edition of the best-selling classic by Matthew McKay is your go-to guide.
This fully revised edition features an innovative application of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to self-esteem, and utilizes updated cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you create positive change and thrive.
Circumstances and status can affect self-esteem—many factors can contribute to the way we see ourselves—but the one contributing factor that all people who struggle with low self-esteem have in common is our thoughts. Of course we all have a better chance of feeling good about ourselves when things are going well, but it’s really our interpretation of our circumstances that can cause trouble, regardless of what they are.
This revised and updated fourth edition of the best-selling Self-Esteem uses proven-effective methods of CBT and relevant components of ACT to help you raise low self-esteem by working on the way you interpret your life. You’ll learn how to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy self-esteem, how to uncover and analyze negative self-statements, and how to create new, more objective and positive self-statements to support your self-esteem rather than undermine it. And with cutting-edge material on defusion and values, you’ll learn to let go of judgmental, self-attacking thoughts and act in accordance with what matters to you most, enhancing your sense of self-worth.
If you struggle with low or unhealthy self-esteem, this new edition of Self-Esteem, packed with evidence-based tips and techniques, has everything you need to improve the way you see yourself for better overall well-being.
