Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, Positive Psychologist, Discusses THE ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy

After I interviewed women outside of my practice, I realized that we do not reinforce, nor encourage the capacities for joy and pleasure that we really have. Often, the media further encourages a negative view of ourselves and our world.

How could I begin to capture and teach others about the capacities for personal joy that these women outside of my practice had taught me?

I decided to share this news in my first book, THE ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy In the ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy, I teach:

1. How you can live a more joyful life; a life of pleasure and meaning -what I call THE ENCHANTED SELF.

2. How you can reclaim from your own past your potential, talents, dreams and abilities and reinvent yourself in positive ways in the present and into the future.

3. How, if you are a therapist, you can change your treatment room into a place where your clients find their enchantment. Learn how healthy it is for your own mental health to benefit from focusing on what is right with your clients rather that what is wrong.

When my book came out, I realized that I had a deep commitment to share with the public and other professionals the information I was gathering about how to live a more joyful, fulfilling life
