Check Up from the Neck Up

Ensuring your Mental Health In the New Millennium
By: Joan M. Andrews and Denise E. Davis

Andrews and Davis are practicing Marriage, Family and Child therapists with many of tips and techniques on topics such as depression, brain clutter, disorganization, procrastination, money problems, sex, personal relationships and many more. Check Up from the Neck Up is a quick survival guide for many of the problems we encounter in just living.

"We decided that this book would be more helpful if we grouped the types of problems you might experience into a term we could use throughout the book. In a nutshell, we are talking about adults
experiencing 'Special Operating Problems.' As we played with the words we came up with AESOP - Adults Experiencing Special Operating Problems, a play on Aesop's Fables. We have devoted a chapter to each of the potential
problems (see TOC)."
