Control by Lamont Prospect

Book Description

CONTROL is all around us - between husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, parents and children, teachers and students, and bosses and employees. Even though LaMont Prospect earned a Bachelor's Degree in English, a Master's Degree in Social Work and a Doctorate in School Psychology, this book does not preach or tell people what to do or how to live their lives. It has no psychological jargon or textbook language. If someone was to say "you need to do A, B, C and D with your life," that would be controlling. Of the 44 chapters, thirty-four are real stories about real people and how the need for control ruined their lives and the lives of others around them. The other 10 chapters are about entities that try to control people. While some of these entities may seem rather obvious, most forms of control are very subtle. The goal is to help readers recognize unhealthy forms of control and how to deal with it. --- About LaMont Prospect LaMont Prospect was born in Racine, WI. After earning a BA in English (UW-Madison, 1981), he worked in the Racine Theatre Guild where he landed leading roles in "The Drunkard," "A Bed Full of Foreigners," and "The Three Cuckolds." Upon returning to Madison to complete a minor in Theatre/Arts, he was cast as William Shakespeare in an MFA production of "Dark Lady of the Sonnets." For a brief time, he worked professionally in the improv comedy group "The Ark" (Joan Cusack among its cast members) and subsequently appeared in three independent films: "Momma's Boy," "Tagged," and "An Addict for my Addictions." --- Prospect's acting career was side-tracked, however, when the demands of a family business took him to Florida to manage a 40-acre orange grove. Eventually, he moved to Milwaukee to work in the family travel agency which afforded him the opportunity to visit Japan, Taiwan, China, Italy, Greece, England, Portugal, Kenya, Canada, and the Netherlands. --- After leaving the family business, Prospect earned an MS in Social Work (UW-Milwaukee, 1993), and also co-authored the article "Behavioral Profiles of Pre-School, Latency, and Teenage Female Incest Victims" (Child Abuse and Neglect) with Professor Elizabeth Sirles. He completed his PhD in School Psychology (Loyola University of Chicago, 1999), with his dissertation-"Raising Math Scores on the Illinois Goals Assessment Test"-involving 1200+ children in the Chicago Public Schools. Licensed in both School Psychology and School Social Work, Prospect has been employed as a School Psychologist in the Milwaukee Public Schools for the last 10 years, where he has worked with hundreds of students, teachers, principals and parents both in regular and special education. --- In 2008, Prospect published CONTROL - A Book About People With An Excessive Need to Control Other People Or Things And About People Who Allow Themselves to Be Controlled By Other People And Things. Prospect has been exhibiting CONTROL all over the U.S. at such places as the NY Center for Independent Publisher's Book Fair, the LA Times Festival of Books Fair, and the Printer's Row Chicago Book Fair.
