Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's THE ENCHANTED SELF®

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ‘The Enchantress of Positive Psychology’ Displays her Books at the American Psychological Association Meetings in Chicago

Ocean, NJ – August, 2002:
Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, Author, Life Coach, and Originator of THE ENCHANTED SELF, will giving a presentation at the 110th American Psychological Association’s Annual Psychologist’s Convention in Chicago on Saturday, August 24, 2002 at 5:00 PM. 

Dr. Holstein 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.  The energy behind her optimistic and hopeful psychological techniques stem from the unique name that she has given herself: ‘The Enchantress of Positive Psychology’.

Her two books, THE ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy and RECIPES FOR ENCHANTMENT, The Secret Ingredient is YOU! will be on display at the Division of Independent Practice in the Hilton Chicago and Towers during the Social Hour.

Now, in its second printing, THE ENCHANTED SELF, A Positive Therapy is a pathfinder book.  It explores the field of positive psychology, teaching other clinicians and clients how to focus on, and bring into the treatment room, the client's strengths, talents and potential--even as the client deals with difficult problems.  Her case studies and intimate personal reflections make this clinically based book a great read.

Her second book, RECIPES FOR ENCHANTMENT, The Secret Ingredient is YOU! is a great companion book.  It captures the reader with inspirational stories.  Each story is followed up by journaling questions and activities that help the reader bring enchantment, purpose and meaning into her daily life.

Dr. Holstein has been a psychologist in private practice since 1981.  Through the practice that she shares with her husband, Dr. Russell Holstein, they have created a long overdue shift in psychology by emphasizing “what's right with us, rather than what's wrong”.  She offers a new way of looking at your life ... your own 'enchanted self'.  Her goal is to inspire and encourage you to achieve your positive states of mind, body, and spirit. 

The Enchanted Self concepts stem from 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.
