Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's THE ENCHANTED SELF®

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ‘Enchanted Self’ Creator Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein on New Jersey Network


Trenton, NJ, March 14, 2001 – The New Jersey Network, New Jersey’s public television station, in conjunction with the New Jersey Labor Department, is interviewing outstanding citizens who can be mentors for people in Job Training programs.  They asked Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, psychologist, author and originator of THE ENCHANTED SELF to be among the people interviewed.  Dr. Holstein will be talking about her new book: RECIPES FOR ENCHANTMENT, The Secret Ingredient is YOU!


During the interview Dr. Holstein will explain many aspects of her new book, including her concept of ‘enchantment’ and why she tends to focus on one’s positive psychology rather than rehashing bad experiences.  She will also explain “what’s is right with you -– not what’s wrong!” 


This is not another helping of ‘Chicken Soup’.  If you are looking at it in that sense, think of it as the book that actually puts the meat in your soup by combining inspiration with the opportunity to journal as you read.  You will also find out where you can buy the book, both at locally and on the Web.


RECIPES FOR ENCHANTMENT is a culmination of over ten years of work and research in the field of personal enchantment by Dr. Holstein.  She teaches us how to recall positive memories, regardless of our history, recognize our potential, and bring into our lives more of what gives us pleasure and joy.  This is all combined with daily positive actions.  A joy to read, you will learn how to ‘cook up’ delicious days for yourself and live a ‘Recipe for Enchantment’.


This breakthrough book combines psychology/self-help with inspiration.  Activities are beautifully interwoven with inspirational stories that teach the most basic recipe: incorporate within our daily life positive actions, combined with our unique positive thoughts and feelings.  The rest will take care of itself as if by magic!


Dr. Holstein has been a psychologist in private practice and licensed in the states of New Jersey and Massachusetts since 1981.  She has been spreading her message of enchantment through her first book, The Enchanted Self, as well as print and electronic newsletters, workshops, tele-classes, radio, and her web site at www.enchantedself.com.
