Coffeetown Press to Release So You Think You’re Crazy, Comfort for an Anxious World
Coming April 1, 2014: in his new book, psychologist Frank Machovec defines the true meaning of “crazy” and suggests methods of coping with anxiety in the 21st century.

BriefingWire.com, 2/20/2014 - On April 1, 2014, Coffeetown Press will release So You Think You’re Crazy: Reassurance About Everyday Hang-Ups (5x8 Trade Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60381-168-2, $13.95, 218 pp.), by Frank Machovec, PhD. This self-help guide defines the true meaning of “crazy” and suggests the most effective means of coping with anxiety and stress.

“As a seasoned licensed therapist, I found this book to be a great summary of major theories of psychology and psychotherapy as well the new DSM V, the diagnostic guide for mental health professionals. I especially enjoyed the self-help/wellness section at the end. A must-have book.”

—Paul E. Crouch, LCSW, BCD

“This book will appeal to anyone who might be considering an assessment for psychotherapy, as it may help them understand and resolve their issues sooner. Dr. Machovec presents his information using philosophical and historical contexts to better ground the reader in the concepts being discussed. A compact and thorough pre-therapy manual.”

—Stuart C. Tentoni, PhD, Former Director of Counseling and Training, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

In these hectic, 21st-century times, many worry if they have stepped over the line and acquired a mental disorder. Are you really crazy, or is what troubles you simply a normal variant of universal human behavior? What behavioral traits must you learn to live with? Which can you change? What can your dreams tell you about your behavior?

In his basic, down-to-earth primer, board-certified psychologist Dr. Frank Machovec describes mental disorders according to the latest diagnostic manual, past and current therapy techniques, and simple diagnostic tests to help you explore your thoughts and feelings. Even if you believe you are not that normal, this book can suggest ways for you to feel better about yourself and guide you in your search for professional help.

Says Dr. Machovec, “The most frequent question I was asked in thirty years as a psychologist was, in essence: ‘Am I really okay?’ This book will help answer that question. I hope readers will feel as if I’m talking to them personally. The main message of the book is that it’s normal to feel a little crazy from time to time—to worry about whether you’re normal and how normal you really are.”

Frank Machovec, PhD, is a retired licensed clinical psychologist who worked in mental hospitals, clinics, and private practice for 30 years. In addition to pre- and post-PhD internships, he is board certified in medical psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis and was a certified forensic examiner, testifying as an expert witness in civil and criminal cases. He has written 50 books and 27 journal articles. Dr. Machovec teaches college-level psychology as an adjunct professor as well as continuing education classes.
