This book incorporates practical knowledge of psychological and behavioral techniques that can be applied by students and young adults to help them solve problems they face or will face in everyday life. The basic approach is first to explain principles and techniques of self-management as applications, and then to encourage students to consider the psychological and behavioral procedures as they apply to their own personal experiences. In doing so, most chapters include the discussion of a topic, accompanied by real-life illustrations of how self-management procedures were developed and applied by students using the techniques presented in the text. Comments regarding the success or failure of their self-developed and executed programs further amplify students' reactions to the strengths and weaknesses of various self-management procedures. Students will appreciate the "user friendly" style of the book, which was inspired by the suggestions and comments of their peers. As a result, students will discover material in the book as it relates directly to them, and instructors will welcome both the clarity of presentation and the pragmatic coverage of topics. The wealth of practical information and knowledge is interesting both to students and instructors, as it provides a hands-on approach to the use of psychological and behavioral techniques. This book is an essential resource for developing skills of self-management for anyone to use in the real world.
