Changing to Thrive
Changing for Good
A Revolutionary Six-Stage Program for Overcoming Bad Habits and Moving Your Life Positively Forward
How many times have you thought about starting a diet or quitting smoking without doing anything about it? Or lapsed back into bad habits after hitting a rough spot on the road to recovery?
To uncover the secret to successful personal change, three acclaimed psychologists studied more than 1,000 people who were able to positively and permanently alter their lives without psychotherapy. They discovered that change does not depend on luck or willpower. It is a process that can be successfully managed by anyone who understands how it works.
Systems of Psychotherapy
A Transtheoretical Analysis (PSY 641 Introduction to Psychotherapy)
Systematic and balanced, this comprehensive text uses a wealth of clinical case illustrations to help readers understand a wide variety of psychotherapies including psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, existential, person-centered, experiential, interpersonal, exposure, behavioral, cognitive, systemic, multicultural, and integrative. The Seventh Edition thoroughly analyzes 15 leading systems of psychotherapy and briefly surveys another 30, thus providing a broader scope than is available in most textbooks.
The Transtheoretical Approach
Crossing traditional boundaries of therapy
Covering the process of change, this book shows that there are three dimensions: temporal aspects of the process, the principles of change in mechanisms, and levels of change indicating problems addressed. This is applied to problems such as psychic distress, marital problems and addictions.
