About the Book

In mental health and substance abuse organizations, mental health counselors and managers serve as essential personal for ensuring staff are supported. Mental health managers hold a critical role in providing guidance to counselors, which ultimately impact the quality of the care provided to patients in mental health and substance abuse organizations. Transformational and transactional leadership is noted to be effective for a variety of organizations. However, the role that transformational and transactional leadership plays in mental health and substance abuse organizations is absent in previous literature. For this study, a qualitative exploration of transactional and transformational leadership influence on the relationship between counselor and manager relationship was explored.

About the Author

I started out in 1984 as a blue collar-worker in the railroad industry. I always felt that life has much more to offer than just working an eight-hour day to a forty-hour week. In 1990 I found a magazine that offered a course in Metaphysical science, so I enrolled. After about four years not only did, I learn more about who I am, but the potential that has been suppressed so many years. I was in my early thirties when I made up my mind to pursue a career in the field of counseling people who may have traveled the same road. However, as time when on, people began to change along with the situations they were experiencing. I then realized that I must get more education to provide a better more effective way of helping. I enrolled in a psychology bachelor’s course, then on to the master’s and ultimately earning a Ph.D. in psychology research, mental health policy and practice. All this was accomplished from 2014 through 2020. During my education years, I have worked with in various employment such as the psych-ward, mental health and substance use facilities and I have the pleasure of learning how to work and help individuals in the Autism spectrum. I am presently retired but still very active in the volunteering area of helping others learn. I have devoted most of my adult life to the betterment of the under privileged and those who society have forgotten. I hope through my writings I can reach more people with the message of hope and inspiration. Dr. Bruce Nash Sr. Ph. D.
