The Solving Life's Problems Workbook
by Inna B. Mertsalova

How do you react to a stressful situation? If you’re worrying, worst-case scenarios may be occupying your thoughts. Worry makes you expect that something horrible will happen, even if it’s highly unlikely. This worry leaves you unprepared to face stressful events when they happen. The solution? You need to be able to plan so you’re ready for such situations.

The problem-solving approach teaches you to use a constructive thinking process that’s flexible and effective in dealing with the problem at hand. Problem-solving is a practical process that leads you to focus on your current problem instead of on problems, in general.

By adopting the problem-solving strategies proposed in this workbook, you’ll be giving yourself the best chance to deal well with problems. If you substitute your worrying time with time spent thinking about solutions, you’ll achieve greater results, resolving problems in your life.

If you’re looking for enhanced well-being, The Solving Life’s Problems Workbook will quickly steer you in the right direction. This workbook will help you learn to better formulate the problem you’re facing, to choose an effective solution, and to evaluate all the pros and cons of each problem-solving step, thus improving the quality of your life.

Inna B. Mertsalova, Ph.D., M.Ed., M.Sc. was performing stress reduction workshops for the public in community centres in the Greater Toronto Area. She has performed extensive research in psycho-oncology, focusing on how humans’ vulnerability to stress reactions might influence the physiological state of the body. For the last ten years, Dr. Mertsalova has been extensively studying the role of stress and personality in the development and progression of a variety of physiological illnesses. Believing that knowledge empowers us to understand how we become ill due to stress, she provides the results of health psychology research to the public by writing literature reviews.

She is a certified specialist in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for practical solutions to real-world problems from the Gail Appel Institute. Also, she is a certified hypnotherapist from the National Guild of Hypnotherapists.

She lives in Richmond Hill, Ontario with her husband and younger daughter. Her older kids are living independently with their families. Her house is full of pets: a borzoi puppy, a Bengal kitten, and two bunnies. Living in the forest makes her responsible for taking care of wild animals and birds. Music is also a part of her family living, as her daughter and she love playing grand piano.
