All human beings have spontaneous needs for happiness, self-understanding, and love. In Feeling Good: The Science of Well Being, psychiatrist Robert Cloninger describes a way to coherent living that satisfies these strong basic needs through growth in the uniquely human gift of self-awareness. The scientific findings that led Dr. Cloninger to expand his own views in a stepwise manner during 30 years of research and clinical experience are clearly presented so that readers can consider the validity of his viewpoint for themselves. The principles of well-being are based on a non-reductive scientific paradigm that integrates findings from all the biomedical and psychosocial sciences. Reliable methods are described for measuring human thought and social relationships at each step along the path of self-aware consciousness. Practical mental exercises for stimulating the growth of self-awareness are also provided. The methods are supported by data from brain imaging, genetics of personality, and longitudinal biopsychosocial studies. Feeling Good: The Science of Well-Being will be of value to anyone involved in the sciences of the mind or the treatment of mental disorders. It will also interest theologians, philosophers, social scientists, and lay readers because it provides contemporary scientific concepts and language for addressing the perennial human questions about being, knowledge, and conduct.

Recent years have seen a surprising shift concerning the concept of self-esteem, with some researchers attacking the notion of self-esteem as being of little value or too difficult to study. Educators emphasized self-esteem's importance in schools to the extent that sometimes it became more important than academic performance. And a parade of overly-simple and ineffective self-help books promote the importance of self-esteem but seldom deliver real change. Coming to the defense of self-esteem as a valuable and measurable component of good mental health, Feeling Good by Doing Good offers a new evidence-based approach to defining, understanding, and increasing what is known as "authentic self-esteem." Translating decades of research in the fields of self-esteem, humanistic psychology, positive psychology, and psychotherapy into everyday terms, Christopher Mruk traces the definition of self-esteem back to when it was first used to describe the value of "doing that which is both just and right." Seen this way, self-esteem is not just feeling good about oneself - rather, it comes from facing life's challenges in ways that demonstrate one's competence and worth as a person. This approach to self-esteem offers several new and powerful advantages, namely understanding different types of self-esteem, clarifying the connection between self-esteem and self-control, appreciating how self-esteem operates in various domains of life such as work or relationships, realizing that self-esteem acts as an internal compass to help steer us in healthier directions, and recognizing the connection between authentic self-esteem and basic human values. Featuring clinical and everyday vignettes, practical exercises aimed at enhancing personal as well as interpersonal well-being, and thought-provoking self-assessments for the reader, Feeling Good by Doing Good is a unique resource that will be of interest to mental health professionals, their clients, and laypersons alike interested in substance over platitudes and feel-good solutions.

From the Introduction: Feeling Good about Faraway Friends is an innovative pack from Leeds DEC which focuses on the daily life of a Maasai family in Kenya. It is aimed at upper infants and lower primary school children. Recognizing that there is no such thing as a typical family, either in the UK or in Kenya, it allows us a glimpse of the lives of Konina and her family. It is unique in that it explicitly recognizes the need for children to develop a positive attitude towards self and peer group, as a prerequisite for the study of an overseas locality. It encourages children to feel good about themselves and their classmates, to acknowledge and celebrate similarities and differences, and enables them to respect and appreciate the Maasai family as their "faraway friends". What?: this pack builds self-esteem and respect for other people in the classroom and in a wider context, recognizing that self-esteem is about self-acceptance not self-centredness; it explores similarities and differences within the classroom between pupils and extends that learning to the Maasai family; it covers the daily life of a pastoralist family; it develops an understanding of the relationship between place and a people's way of life -- Why?: To celebrate difference rather than be threatened by it; to show that development can be measured in ways other than purely economic; to establish the validity of other lifestyles; to challenge negative stereotypes e.g. that all Africans are starving; to appreciate the skills that pastoralists have developed in sustaining life in semiarid areas; to understand some of the pressures forcing change upon indigenous people -- How?: by starting from children's own experience and relating it to that of the Kenyan family; by broadening and deepening the children's existing experience and learning, e.g. building on "Myself" topic; by being sensitive to real people: recognizing that Konina and her family are real people; by using language that reflects a positive attitude e.g. homes and houses-not huts; by using "circle time' to encourage speaking and listening, co-operation and confidence building and giving as much weight to reflection after the activity as to the preparation; by using art and craft activities and classroom displays to celebrate human creativity, affirm pupils and reinforce new learning; by using the teacher's insights and knowledge of her/his children to support peep group learning, early readers and emergent writers; by using active learning methods; by using a range of activities recognizing different developmental stages; by using story to explore the past and explain the present.

After a few hectic - but wonderful - years, I woke up in a hospital close to my hometown in Sweden. What had happened? Only yesterday, I felt like a champion. Maybe it was my eagerness to explore the world around me that had put me here. Or maybe it was my fear of missing out on some potentially rewarding experience. Maybe I had been just a little bit too eager trying to make my dreams come true, or could my brush with death simply be a case of bad luck? There was a severe inflammation in my brain, which at times made it hard for me even to recognize my loved ones. To me, questions like 2 + 2 seemed more fitting for a rocket scientist. The doctors were deeply concerned and told me that my prognosis was very uncertain. Things certainly looked bleak, but surviving this whole ordeal was still in the cards. At the time, it made more sense to me to simply see my situation as a case of bad luck. Nonetheless, six months later and completely recovered, I realized that this was the result of something completely different. My love for life and my desire to experience as much as possible had blocked my inner signals. It was like an inner voice telling me to "Relax. Don't try to do everything at once. Stop and smell the roses." Unfortunately, I ignored this worried voice that was trying to look out for me. As I took my first stumbling steps leaving the hospital, I can still clearly remember how alert my senses truly were. Children's laughter made me feel all warm inside. The simple beauty of the sky shifting color made me stop all of a sudden in awe. Smelling the first spring flowers gave me goose bumps. The taste of fresh air being sucked into my lungs made me feel deeply relaxed and the sensation of once again experiencing life made me somewhat euphoric. I was completely present in the moment and my senses were shaper than ever before. This was the beginning of a new journey for me. I started to examine exactly what is needed to create the best possible conditions for feeling good and how we are to create the best possible lives for ourselves. Eight years later, I have now compiled my research and theories in this book. My research has led me to conclude that it is possible for each and every one of us to feel good, every day, throughout our whole lives.

Catherine Simmons, PhD, LCSW ìDrs. Simmons and Lehmann have given all of us in the helping professionsópractitioners and researchers alikeóa comprehensive resource for finding and selecting psychometrically sound, practical, strengths-based measures that we can use not only to ëlook at the resultsí but to do so in a way that we ëmeasure others by their strengths.í We look forward to seeing this invaluable resourceÖon every social workerís desk in the coming years.î -John G. Orme, PhD, MSW Professor, University of Tennessee -Terri Combs-Orme, PhD The Urban Child Institute Endowed Professor Traditionally, assessment and evaluation have focused on the negative aspects or deficits of a clientís presentation. Yet strengths, health, and those things that are going ìrightî in a personís life are key protective factors in the prevention and treatment of many mental health problems. Thus, measuring strengths is an important component of a balanced assessment and evaluation process. This is the first compendium of more than 150 valid and reliable strengths-based assessment tools that clinicians, researchers, educators, and program evaluators can use to assess a wide array of positive attributes, including well-being, mindfulness, optimism, resilience, humor, aspirations, values, sources of support, emotional intelligence, and much more. These tools provide a clear picture of an individualís strengths while being easy to complete, score, and interpret. The scales and instruments included are consistently formatted, organized according to construct measures, and include tools for working with adults, couples, families, children, and special populations. They represent a wide range of theoretical approaches and were written by a diverse array of professionals, including social workers, psychologists, nurses, physicians, and sociologists.
