Emerging Perspectives on Values in Organizations / Steiner, Skarlicki & Gililand.

Handbook of Adult Resilience / Reich, Zautra & Hall. What enables people to bounce back from stressful experiences? This is the first book to move beyond childhood and adolescence to explore resilience across the lifespan. Coverage ranges from genetic and physiological factors through personal, family, organizational, and community processes. Contributors examine how resilience contributes to health and well-being across the adult life cycle; why—and what happens when—resilience processes fail; ethnic and cultural dimensions of resilience; and ways to enhance adult resilience, including reviews of exemplary programs. In Defense of Miracles: a comprehensive case for God’s action in history / Geivett & Habermas. This text has assembled a distinguished team of scholars to rebut the objections and set forth the positive case for God's action in history. It is a comprehensive, up-to-date discussion that should not be overlooked by anyone concerned with the current debate over miracles. Stronger: develop the resilience you need to succeed / Everly, Strouse & McCormack. Drawing on the unique perspective of a standout team of authors (a stress management expert, a skilled entrepreneur, and a Navy SEAL), Stronger explores the science behind resilience and explains how you can develop this vital trait for yourself. Whatever your profession, today's demanding world calls for a special kind of strength. This revealing book holds the key. Psychology of Burnout: new research / Doolittle. This book is an important, fresh contribution to the field of job satisfaction, workplace coping, and mental health. Attuned to the most important questions of job burnout and coping, this collection is commended for both the researcher and committed student who wish to explore the forces that influence the modern workplace. The Resilience Handbook: approaches to stress and trauma / Kent, Davis & Reich. Resilience preserves and promotes the individual in context and simultaneously keeps harm at bay. But what are the characteristics that enhance and shield and help the individual to live a rewarding life? This text guides readers through a study of resilience as a process, not just an outcome: from the first responses to challenge and the allocation of executive functions to study of the hands-on and empirically validated interventions clinicians can use to promote intrapersonal, interpersonal, and social resilience. Thought and Knowledge: an introduction to critical thinking 5th ed / Halpern. Thought and Knowledge, Fifth Edition has been revised to help students meet the challenges of a global neighborhood and make meaningful conclusions from the overwhelming quantity of information now available at the click of a mouse. The skills learned with this text will help students learn more efficiently, research more productively, and present logical, informed arguments.
