About the Author:
Jerry Wilde is a professor of educational psychology for Indiana University East. Prior to this academic appointment, he spent years working with students who had emotional, behavioral, and learning difficulties. It was through his experiences with children and families that he learned the skills and techniques included in his books. His experiences with his own health problems have reinforced his beliefs about the nature of emotions. After experiencing kidney failure and being on dialysis, he was fortunate enough to receive a kidney transplant. However, he developed cancer in his transplanted kidney and went back on dialysis for two years. On February 24, 2012, he received his second kidney transplant. Through it all, Jerry remains optimistic and stubbornly refuses to let this difficulties change his outlook on life. Other than psychology, the great loves of his life are his family, the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Minnesota Twins, and Diet Mt. Dew.
