Do you depend on antidepressants, alcohol, or other medications to calm you down or help you sleep? If so, you're not alone. Tens of millions of Americans are affected by anxiety disorders and many more worldwide.

With great determination, research, and trial and error, I have returned to a healthy state of wholeness and optimism. My book details many of the problems I encountered daily, struggles that anyone suffering from anxiety can certainly relate to.

Strategy - How to formulate a plan to overcome your own fears and self-created limitations.

Through a new concept of reverse profiling, the authors widen the perspective on the multiple causes of school violence, moving away from a static trait cluster or profile perspective. Increased attention to the processes, patterns, cycles, and other decompensation trends is the key to identifying schools which are vulnerable to violence and potential perpetrators. Awareness can be the best tool in prevention."
