Overview

Honest and inspiring, I NEVER KNEW I HAD A CHOICE: EXPLORATIONS IN PERSONAL GROWTH, 11th Edition, is an invitation to personal learning and growth -- and a roadmap to lasting change. Research-based, yet written in a personal, encouraging tone, this resource helps students examine the choices they've made, expand their awareness of the choices available to them, and choose where to go next. The authors cover a wide range of topics as they emphasize the role of personal responsibility and choice in creating a meaningful life. Self-inventories, activities, and first-person accounts of difficult choices real people have made give students insight into their lives, beliefs, and attitudes.

  • Up-to-date research and literature provide the most current information available on personal growth and adjustment topics. Each chapter also features inventories, questions, activities, and suggested websites that help readers gain insight into their thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behavior.
  • Text material is presented in a way that helps students apply chapter concepts to their own lives. Each chapter begins with a self-inventory designed to assess attitudes and beliefs regarding a particular question -- helping readers clarify personal views on a range of subjects. "Take Time to Reflect" activities pose questions to help stimulate critical thinking about how the material affects students personally. End-of-chapter "Where Can I Go From Here" exercises help students apply text material, while personal assessment tools provide valuable insight into students' own behavior.
  • "Personal Stories" in many chapters offer first-person accounts of how others have dealt with their own struggles and the choices they have made in response to their challenges -- enabling students to learn and gain insight from the experiences of others.
