Empowering the Disabled to be Proactive
Date:3/31/2008

FAR HILLS, N.J., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- No one wants to think it could happen to them. Whether you're at work or at home, a disabling injury or illness can occur at any time. It can prevent us the ability to work, attend social gatherings and live life as we previously did. Suffering from a disability can leave a person feeling withdrawn, helpless and depressed. But it is possible to do things you never envisioned, and even have a better life.

WINNING THE DISABILITY CHALLENGE: A Practical Guide to Successful Living by John F. Tholen, Ph.D. (New Horizon Press, April 2008), is the first book that guides the disabled worker through both the emotional trauma and occupational disability. Dr. Tholen helps workers negotiate the complex world of rights and benefits while providing methods to personal security and self- fulfillment. He explores the frustrations of the newly disabled maze of disability benefits, while offering one hundred affirmations that can provide comfort and help disabled people feel positive about their conditions.

Dr. Tholen presents a winning course of action when handling insurance companies, signing documents and settling occupational disputes, and he also provides an inspiring, uplifting message of hope. He believes that disabled people can become happier and enjoy life even more than before. WINNING THE DISABILITY CHALLENGE: A Practical Guide to Successful Living provides step-by- step methods for improving health, managing pain, battling insomnia and coping with depressive symptoms. Helpful tips and advice are also included to help answer those "hard to answer" questions such as "What forms do I need to file?" or "What support groups are there with other people who share my disability?" This book is ideal for people with lifelong disabilities, wounded military veterans and those injured on the job.
