Dr. John J. Liptak frequently conducts workshops on assessment-related topics. With Kathy Khalsa and Ester Leutenberg, he has written three other comprehensive books for teachers and counselors to use with their students and clients: The Self-Esteem Program, The Social Skills Program and The Stress Management Program: Inventories, Activities & Educational Handouts.
Ester A. Leutenberg has worked in the mental health profession for many years as both a publisher and as an advocate for those suffering from loss. She personally experienced a loss when her son Mitchell, after struggling with a mental illness for eight years, died by suicide in 1986. Soon after, as a way of both healing and helping others, she co-founded Wellness Reproductions & Publishing. Ester began developing therapeutic products that help facilitators help their clients. She is the co-author of the book Meaningful Life Skills for older adults, the eight-book Life Management Skills series for adults, The Anger & Aggression Workbook, The Communications Skills Workbook, and The Substance Abuse & Recovery Workbook.
Ester, a breast cancer survivor of five years, has counseled other survivors in overcoming body-loss issues. She says that GriefWork - Healing from Loss is the culmination of a book she has been formulating in her mind for almost thirty years.
