Gaining Mental Clarity Before Entering the Workforce or Relationships:

Self Help Books Come in Handy!

Sometimes there are hidden skeletons in the lives of abuse victims. That is unknown to the world and those around them. Struggles in dealing with past traumas, abuse and rape leave shackles around its victims’ ankles. If you are a victim of abuse, Psychotherapist’s offer treatments.
The national abuse hotline is 800-656-4613.

This specific topic is important. Incorporating self-help books; in addition, to doctors orders, it’s said to be a beneficial regimen. For example in life as general and before entering a relationship. Especially in career, position of power, promotion or entrepreneur partnership.


Psychology Today reports, “Whether the abuse occurred during childhood or as an adult some people may still struggle with healing.” As if the abuse has just happened. Victims act out a multitude of self-destructive symptoms and sometimes behaviors. What is not discussed often: These symptoms are similar to post-traumatic stress disorder.

Now let us take into consideration: An employee, a past victim of child or adulthood abuse. This person has entered the workforce without realizing or being diagnosed with PTSD. Per the result of abuse. Sometimes the employee behaves with:

  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Trust issues
  • High anxiety
  • Guilt and startled responses

For colleagues, the above behavior is erratic and makes them uncomfortable. In a situation like this, there is not much a coworker can do or predict. Until that dreadful day, something hostile occurs within the office. This is just a quick scenario; however, such behaviors of colleagues go unnoticed in the workplace. Often times it is stated, “Oh she/he is just weird.”

This specific topic is important. Incorporating self-help books; in addition, to doctors orders, it’s said to be a beneficial regimen. For example in life as general and before entering a relationship. Especially in career, position of power, promotion or entrepreneur partnership.

I love 7 – the number of completion – below I have researched 7 reasons incorporating a self-help book is beneficial to you!

I’ve had the honor in writing a chapter in “Bounced Back on Purpose” a self help book.


Bounced back on Purpose is a self help book, that covers various topics from rape, mental abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse and unhealthy relationships. It’s written to display how some authors suffered from PTSD behaviors that trailed from childhood traumas to adult life. However, how they were able to raise from the stereotypical outcomes. This book is a phenomenal source, that can be implemented as a learning tool. Especially for those individuals dealing with past abuse, but do not understand how to cope.

The book launch in Orlando, Florida was rewarding with my goal friends. It was phenomenal celebrating this accomplishment. I appreciate your support and don’t forget to following my business blog for career advice and news!

Professional Resume Story: Money well spent!

There is a new career waiting with your name on it, but your resume is in bad shape.

After a quick review, Recruiters make extremely quick disposition decisions. In a nice way I am saying is, “Resumes poorly written are filed. Most recruiters have subconsciously trashed it.”  Also candidates who apply several dozen times with the same poorly written resume, recruiters see you, but they will not push to hire you! Recruiters are strategic in hunting the best fit for the employer. In addition, they are working against the clock for the best hire. Now just take a moment and picture yourself as piece of 90 second piece of paper. Career stories are essential for our livelihood and well being. Therefore are you equipped with the essentials to concisely write your career story? What if you are a new graduate and do not have a career story. Can you convince an employer to hire you? Perhaps you are in transition or retired, but struggle in determining which careers suit you. At KTC we have current tools and insider recruitment news.
