Social Work professor launches book on Manifesting Your Greatness Through Goal Setting

February 9, 2024
Contact: Brittney Dabney, Office of Communications, Public Relations and Marketing

A new book by a ┐█┐█┤ź├ŻUniversity Social Work professor and alumna aims to help ┐█┐█┤ź├Ż and individuals become better goal-setters and goal-getters.

The book, titled "Manifesting Your Greatness Through Goal Setting: How to Set Simple and Achievable Goals," promises to be a transformative guide for individuals seeking to unlock their full potential by setting short- and long-term goals. The book is written by Andrea Stallworth ÔÇś06, assistant professor and director of field education in the social work department. Focused on the power of goal setting, the book delves into the psychology of achievement and offers actionable strategies to help readers set, pursue, and attain their most ambitious goals.

"I wrote this eBook from the perspective of someone who has written and achieved goals from an elementary school student to now a Clinical Social Worker and Assistant Professor in the social work department," said Stallworth. "This book was designed to help others achieve their goals at their own pace using a simple, easy-to-write approach."

In the book, Stallworth cites research by the University of Scranton that 92 percent of people who set goals never achieve them. So, what does the 8 percent possess to achieve their goals? Consistency, passion, commitment, vision, challenging but realistic goals, accountability and responsibility, and action steps are a few things.

In the book, Stallworth ties together the framework of how her approach as a professor affects her role as a social worker.

"As social workers and future social workers, when we work with our clients, we create goals alongside them and have them achieve short-term and long-term goals to become well, whole, and successful," said Stallworth. "Our ┐█┐█┤ź├Ż at ┐█┐█┤ź├Żhave goals to matriculate through their major by taking their courses, passing them with passing grades, maintaining their grades, achieving life and school balance, and achieving overall success."

The printed edition features 37 pages based on the importance of goal setting, why making excuses will not help manifest your vision or goals, how to become a smart goal-getter, and how to face fear through goals, action steps, and daily inner work.

Stallworth says the intended target audience for the book is for everyone.

"I wrote this book for those who struggle to set simple, specific, and achievable goals and work towards manifesting them," said Stallworth. "I want the readers to understand the difference between short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals and why it is important to set simple goals and create action plans to achieve them."

"Manifesting Your Greatness Through Goal Setting: How to Set Simple and Achievable Goals" is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in eBook and paperback format. For more information about the book, please visit .

┐█┐█┤ź├ŻUniversity assistant professor of the Chemical Engineering Department and faculty senate member Dr. Shahryar Jafarinejad, together with Dr. Bryan Beckingham, associate professor of Chemical Engineering at Auburn University, recently announced the publication of their latest book, "The Renewable Energy-Water-Environment Nexus: Fundamentals, Technology, and Policy," published by Elsevier.

Drawing on expertise from around the world, the book focuses on critical issues around renewable energy-water-environment nexus in 13 chapters. The book explores different renewable energy technologies, including the importance of their development, use for a sustainable future, sustainability evaluation of renewable energy technologies and an in-depth exploration of fundamental concepts, cutting-edge technologies, and insightful policy discussions crucial for addressing contemporary global challenges. It examines sub-relationships, focusing on renewable energy and water, renewable energy and the environment, and water and the environment. Available methods and tools for analyzing the renewable energy-water-environment nexus, including the life cycle assessment of renewable energy systems, are also covered.

Dr. Jafarinejad, recognized for his expertise and dedication in Chemical Engineering, provides a comprehensive and thought-provoking exploration of environmental science and related disciplines.

"This book can be a reference for ┐█┐█┤ź├Ż of chemical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, allowing them the opportunity to consider the applications of artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to the nexus, as well as integration of renewable energy, water, and environment-related policies," explained Jafarinejad.

The book highlights key technologies and opportunities in the nexus, considering areas such as renewable energy sources for desalination systems, renewable energy powered water pumping systems, technologies to reduce evaporative water loss in open water storage/reservoir, cooling systems for thermoelectric power plants to reduce or eliminate the use of water for cooling, waste heat recovery and renewable energy utilized systems, energy storage systems, hydrogen technologies, nanotechnology application to the nexus, application of artificial intelligence techniques, and the integration of renewable energy, water, and environment-related policies.

This collaboration between ┐█┐█┤ź├ŻUniversity and Auburn University demonstrates the commitment of both institutions to advancing scholarly endeavors and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration for addressing pressing societal issues.

"The Renewable Energy-Water-Environment Nexus: Fundamentals, Technology, and Policy" is available through Elsevier and leading book retailers.

Dr. John Tilghman
Tilghman

John Tilghman, Associate Professor and Interim Department Chair of History and Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences, has been named the inaugural recipient of the Temple University Press (TUP) Zane L. Miller Book Development Award for his proposed book, currently titled╠ř"Jim Crow from the Harbor: Black Freedom Struggle and Downtown Baltimore." He will receive $2,500 to fund the development of his urban studies-focused book manuscript.

When presenting Tilghman with the award, the committee noted that his book ÔÇťprovides new perspectives on downtown development, African American history, Baltimore history, and the complexities of class in urban America.ÔÇŁ

The prize, named in honor of the late founding editor of TUPÔÇÖs╠ř╠řseries, is designed to advance the careers of╠řscholars from underrepresented communities who have limited access to financial resources for book development. It also honors Miller, a renowned scholar of urban history and a devoted, tireless mentor to less-experienced fellow authors seeking to navigate the book development and publication process.╠ř

David Stradling, coeditor of the╠ř╠řseries said, ÔÇťDr. TilghmanÔÇÖs work revises the story of the white growth machineÔÇÖs late 20th╠řcentury╠řefforts to protect downtown Baltimore through segregation, redevelopment, and displacement╠řby putting Black voices and Black activism at the center of the story. In TilghmanÔÇÖs telling, Black home buyers remake BaltimoreÔÇÖs central city neighborhoods, Black shoppers force the desegregation of downtown stores, and Black activists reshape Baltimore politics. Ultimately, efforts to create an all-white citadel in the central city can only crumble.ÔÇŁ╠ř╠ř

Upon receiving the award, Tilghman said, ÔÇťWinning the Zane L. Miller Book Development Award is a tremendous honor. I would like to thank the editors at Temple University Press, and particularly Dr. David Stradling and Dr. Davarian Baldwin, for helping me make this proposed book more insightful and impactful.ÔÇŁ

"Jim Crow from the Harbor"╠řexamines BaltimoreÔÇÖs downtown redevelopment of the Charles Center and Inner Harbor-Harborplace through the lens of the cityÔÇÖs civil rights movement, with particular attention paid to how these initiatives succeeded in producing a glitzy fa├žade of a revitalized downtown American city while severely constraining the lives of its Black residents.

Tilghman explores the origins and importance of urban tensions between the Black community and downtown interests after the Second Great Migration and during the postwar Civil Rights and Black Power era, the implementation of urban development projects, and anti-freeway and affirmative action campaigns. The authorÔÇÖs research uncovers how a public-private partnershipÔÇöa coalition of real estate agents, businesspeople, city politicians, and housing developersÔÇö worked to exacerbate racial and class segregation and destroy Black communities by expanding the downtown beyond the central business district.

The Zane L. Miller Book Development Award is given annually. For submission information, .
