Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein's THE ENCHANTED SELF

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, Positive Psychologist and Originator of THE ENCHANTED SELF(R) joins TBS Professional Center (TBSPC) http://www.tbsprocenter.org/ as an Advisor and Contributor.


Ocean, NJ September 15, 2003: Where can the ENCHANTRESS OF POSITIVE Psychology go to transmit enchantment and inspiration to other mental health professionals? For Internet pioneer, Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, the answer was to help create a thriving online community for mental and allied health professionals. As an advisor to The Bright Side http://www.the-bright-side.org, she shared her expertise and positive energy to help develop TBSPC, which launched August 1, 2003.

Building a private practice is hard work. In addition to being a good therapist, one must also find ways to reach new clients, as well as maintain their practice. In other words, one must become an expert marketer, as well as small-business manager with all it entails. Complementing The Bright Side's original mission of serving the public (see below), TBS Professional Center, can help professionals in the mental/allied health field to reach the public and thus help those in need.

TBS Professional Center creates an environment where mental-health professionals can easily interact by exploiting the vastness of the Internet. Therapists from around the world can share ideas, give &receive advice, and expand their horizons. In addition, caregivers can find support from their peers, when they, themselves, need a helping hand.

TBSPC provides a perfect forum for Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, who has been in private practice in New Jersey, since 1981, to teach, share her journey of enchantment in the treatment room and learn with and from other therapists. Dr. Holstein is launching a new column on TBSPC in partnership with her husband, Dr. Russell Holstein, moving from Disenchantment to Enchantment. Dr Russell Holstein, in practice with Barbara, describes himself as a Warrior Psychologist. "My passion is to fight a patient and professional unfriendly health care system, which is motivated by profit as opposed to traditional values such as patient well-being." Join in on the spirited discussion as The Enchanted Self and the Warrior Psychologist explore positive psychology, avoiding burnout, and surviving managed care with TBSPC's worldwide community of mental health and allied health professionals.

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 insights she discovered in her path finding case study research of women.  She offers a new way of looking at your life ... your own 'enchanted self'.  Her goal is to inspire and encourage each of us to achieve positive states of mind, body, and spirit. 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.
