E. Scott Geller
Virginia Tech’s E. Scott Geller has released a new book, “Applied Psychology: Actively Caring for People,” a new volume that Geller says encompasses his renowned 46-year career at the University, and his passion for self-improvement and positive thinking.
Geller, an Alumni Distinguished Professor in the Department of Psychology, part of the College of Science, authored and edited the 700-page book with more a dozen Virginia Tech graduate students and alumni. Chapters focus on applied behavioral science and the Geller-launched global Actively Caring for People Movement, which Geller says benefits human welfare and quality of life on both individual and cultural levels.
“Our book was written to provide the reader with practical strategies they can use to improve their quality of life as well as the welfare of others, in such areas as coaching, teaching, parenting, preventing alcohol abuse, promoting safe driving, preventing obesity, and improving healthcare,” said Geller.
