Help Me! named 2016 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards Finalist in Three Categories

Help Me! A Psychotherapist's Tried-And-True Techniques for a Happier Relationship with Yourself and the People You Love named 2016 Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards Finalist in the Family & Relationships, Psychology, and Self-Help categories.

NEW YORK - March 29, 2017 - s4story -- Today, Health Psychology Press is pleased to announce Help Me! has been recognized as a finalist in the 19th annual Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards in three categories: Family & Relationships, Psychology and Self-Help.

Help Me! brings readers on a journey through a series of essays highlighting anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship counseling, self-esteem, and trauma.

"The essays in this book are a collection of observations, ideas, and insights that I have accumulated during my career as a Clinical Social Work Psychotherapist. One of the motivations for writing this book is because of the many people I have met - both in and out of my office - who have described their personal psychotherapy as having left them 'insight-rich and change poor,' which is the title of one of the seventy essays in the book," expressed Dr. Joelson. "Among my objectives in writing Help Me! was to create a series of brief essays that were informational, interesting, helpful and entertaining. According to the responses from so many readers, it appears that I have been able to successfully achieve all four of these goals."

Foreword INDIES finalists represent the best books published in 2016, and submitted to Foreword Reviews for award consideration, and were narrowed down by Foreword's editors from over 2,200 individual titles spread across 65 categories.

"Choosing finalists for the INDIES is always the highlight of our year, but the choice was more difficult this time around due to the high quality of submissions," said Victoria Sutherland, publisher of Foreword Reviews. "Each new book award season proves again how independent publishers are the real innovators in the industry."

"Knowing the high quality of the books entered for 2016, I am especially honored to have become a finalist. I have always been grateful for the opportunity to become a meaningful part of the lives of people who have sought my help as they grew and changed. It has been extraordinarily fulfilling to learn from so many readers how much value they found in the pages of my book and how easily they were able to apply some of the ideas and strategies in order to lead happier, healthier lives," Dr. Joelson continued.

INDIES finalists are moved on to final judging by an expert panel of librarians and booksellers curated specifically for each genre and who will determine the books that will be named Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Award winners. Winners in each genre — along with Editor's Choice winners, and Foreword's INDIE Publisher of the Year — will be announced during the 2017 American Library Association Annual Conference in Chicago on June 24, 2017.
