Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's THE ENCHANTED SELF


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  The Enchantress Within on www.ladybuglive.com hosts an Enchanter!

February 2004: Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, nationally known Positive Psychologist, just interviewed Andy Behrman, author of Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania, on her audio show. Andy is a spectacular enchanter! He has come through the darkest of days and truly found his way to health, happiness, wisdom and inspiration. Come and listen to him tell his story to Dr. Holstein 24/7 at The Enchantress Within. Simply 'tune-in' to the show at http://www.ladybuglive.com.

Andy's book, published by Random House is a chronicle of Andy's battle with manic depression and his experience with medications and electroshock therapy. For years Andy experienced euphoric highs and desperate lows - - and was at the mercy of his impulses. He lived life on the edge and in darkness. He was misdiagnosed by more than eight doctors and even when finally diagnosed with this chronic illness, he was unsuccessful on any regiment of medication and opted for the last resort: electroshock therapy. Today, Andy lives with his wife in Los Angeles and works as a writer.

Andy maintains a website at www.electroboy.com and "Electroboy" is being made into a film with Tobey Maguire ("Spiderman" and "Seabiscuit").

Dr. Holstein, in private practice since 1981 in New Jersey, has taken her vision of psychological well-being and how to achieve a life of meaning and joy to the public and other clinicians for many years.

Her Enchanted Self concepts derive from research she did with women and from her private practice experiences. She uses what she has learned about human potential to help us recall positive memories, regardless of our history, recognize our unique talents, and bring into our lives more of what gives us pleasure and joy. This is all combined with daily positive actions.
