Sachin Karnik, Ph.D., LCSW has completed his education in the area of clinical social work and has extensive experience helping teenagers with a wide variety of psychological and education difficulties. One basic deficit in today's education is that teenagers do not use enough analytical and cognitive processes to better understand the meaning and usage of words needed to be successful academically. Lack of academic success leads to low self-esteem, conflicts within the family, and an increasing tendency to dislike education. Dr. Karnik strongly promotes the need for teenagers to be "excited" about learning and psychologically awaken to the fact that teenagers need to be responsible for their own education. The school, parents, teachers, and others can only teach a student whose mind is open to receive knowledge. Dr. Karnik has worked in clinical and non-clinical settings assisting teenagers find diverse ways to enter into a psychological and emotional state of "perfect learning." This perfection in learning begins with the love for learning for its own sake. It is the inner flowering of this love that will be responsible for taking students who are getting D's, C's or even B's and making them straight "A" students. It is the sincere plea of Dr. Karnik, especially to all parents and teachers, to PLEASE TAKE EXTRA TIME WITH OUR PRECIOUS TEENAGERS and assist them, as needed, with the exercises in this book and with any other academic challenges. Vocabulary Builder # 2 is a book about emotions and great diversity of emotions. This workbook and all the subsequent workbooks are thematic in nature in that words selected are part of an overarching "area." In this book (Vocabulary Builder # 2), 125 words were carefully selected to give students and exposure to words regarding emotions. The Vocabulary Builder series is specifically developed to awaken teen analytic, cognitive, and conceptual power. If any student completes all 30 workbooks with sincerity, it is the belief of Dr. Karnik that the student's intellect will become so powerful that great academic success will occur in virtually any subject.
