Leigh Anne Jasheway proves that comedy is accessible, necessary, and much too important to be left in the hands of “professionals”. If the people who could most benefit from reading this book fail to see the necessity of doing so, then it’s up to the rest of us to buy it. CAVEAT: Do not read this book after you stub your toe; read it beforehand. Frankly Don’t Get Mad, Get Funny! could make the world a safer place.

Shirley Babior and Carol Goldman have written a terrific handbook to help the many millions of people who suffer from panic attacks. Their approach is sound and effective.

I have found the book, Overcoming Panic Attacks and Phobias, by Shirley Babior and Carol Goldman, extremely helpful in outpatient short-term treatment of patients with many types of anxiety disorders. The descriptive passages comparing “catastrophic thoughts” to “rational responses” seems to immediately illuminate the cognitive process for most panic responders They are then able to identify the irrational thinking quickly, as it occurs. This, in conjunction with the many other techniques described in the book, provides an excellent basis for continued self-help procedure.

Babior and Goldman have written a book that is quite valuable for the very many patients who ask the treating physician for guidance in contributing to their own treatment. The book has no jargon, advances no theoretical claims, avoids the usual disparaging remarks about medical treatments, and makes no unrealistic promises. This book will certainly help the very many patients who want to take an active role in their own treatment.

Kathy Cash has put together a large collection of very creative ideas for traditional health promotion programming. Her ideas are broad enough to encompass programs with large budgets and those with little budget at all. Health promotion professionals who feel they have done it all and are running out of ways to be creative will surely find this wealth of ideas a shot in the arm.
The projects you designed for the students left lasting impressions on them. From time to time, when they feel themselves out of control, they do remember to “put on their good masks or self-control masks.” One student, Ali, especially remembers which, in turn, sets off the whole class. When their peers ask the class to put on a mask, the students respond better then when I ask.

We begin each day with an imagery exercise. We image our day, activity by activity, the way we would like it to be. For example, we see ourselves doing what we need to do to learn math better. We see ourselves at play time being the kind of person we want to be. The tone and atmosphere is quite calm in our room. I feel more peaceful, patient, relaxed, and happy. This is an excellent tool for the classroom teacher.

Anodea Judith, author of Wheels of Life, Eastern Body: Western Mind
Our congregations have not always done their most exemplary work in welcoming members back from wars. I believe the reason for most of that neglect is that pastors and congregations are not sure what to do for returning veterans. This volume is a wonderful primer for understanding the needs of returning veterans to their communities and communities of faith. Committees and Pastors would do well to utilize this book as they look to welcoming the baptized home from wars.
Bishop Craig E. Johnson
ELCA Minneapolis Area Synod
As a psychologist who has worked with veterans from many wars I found the insights and formulations and recommendations incredibly valuable. The richness of this book is exceptional. Welcome Them Home is packed with wisdom and practical advice. It is an invaluable guide for those who care about veterans and want to help them and their families manage the transition to civilian life.
The sections on psychological problems are masterfully done and will be helpful to clergy and laity alike. It provides an outstanding guide to other resources as well. I can’t recall any book which was this clear and succinct while providing so much information. It needs to be in the library of all churches that have a social mission and commitment to healing.
