520 1  "Are you having difficulty finishing your dissertation? 
       Are you feeling stuck after trying various approaches, or 
       panicky about the entire enterprise? If so, it is unlikely
       that your cognitive abilities are to blame. More likely, 
       the culprits are anxiety, self-doubt, procrastination, 
       perfectionism, and the thoughts, feelings, and behavior 
       that accompany these difficulties. This book was written 
       to help you overcome these problems and finish your 
       dissertation once and for all." "Combining psychological 
       support with a project management approach that breaks 
       tasks into small, manageable chunks, experienced 
       dissertation coach Alison Miller shows you how to overcome
       negativity and succeed beyond your own expectations. You 
       will learn how to plan and structure the dissertation 
       process, work effectively with dissertation chairpersons 
       and committees, and take care of yourself on the 
       dissertation journey. Tips for mastering all of these 
       skills are presented along with exercises to reinforce key
       lessons, ideas, and strategies. By the end of the process,
       you will not only have finished your dissertation - you 
       will also have learned the self-confidence that comes from
       knowing how to stay engaged when difficulties arise and 
       the joy that comes from accomplishment in pursuit of your 
       personal values."--Jacket.
