Tip Sheet for the week of Aug. 25, 2008

RELEASED: Aug. 25, 2008

Story idea
Several UW-Eau Claire faculty members are the authors or editors of newly released books:

  • Dr. Charlene Burns, associate professor of philosophy and religious studies, is the author of "More Moral Than God: Taking Responsibility for Religious Violence," released in July by Rowman & Littlefield. While numerous books have been published Since 9/11 blaming religion for religious violence, Burns' book instead takes a look at the psychological motivations behind religious violence and focuses on the problem as a human creation.

  • Dr. Jonathon R.B. Halbesleben, assistant professor of management and marketing, is the editor of "Handbook of Stress and Burnout in Health Care," a comprehensive guide to the literature on this major issue facing health care providers. The book is being released this month by Nova Publishers.

  • Dr. Justin Patchin, assistant professor of criminal justice in the department of political science, is a co-author of "Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying," released this month by Corwin Press. The book provides strategies to help educators and parents identify, prevent and respond to instances of cyberbullying in their schools and families.

The faculty members may be contacted to discuss their books. Contact Burns at 715-836-2930 or burnscp@uwec.edu, Halbesleben at 715-836-2090 or halbesjr@uwec.edu, or Patchin at 715-836-4058 or patchinj@uwec.edu.
