Book Study - The Power of Self Coaching

I've decided to put together a free book study to further help everyone in my support group with growth and personal development and I thought I would open it up to everyone in the Madison Women's Social Meetup as well. Both Men and Women are welcome to join us!

I use many of the same principles and techniques described in this book - with my own clients. You will benefit greatly from this book!!

I do ask that you intend to attend each meeting as most of what we cover each time will build upon the previous meeting. 

Carla has so graciously offered to help facilitate this book study since I, myself, may not be able to make all the meetings as well.

The regular days/time will be set later. We will meet Monday to gather and discuss options, eat, drink and be merry! :) It would be great if you have the book by then - but, if not, no biggie.

Hope you can join us!

The New book is about $11 but the Used versions are as low as $1.

From the Back Cover:

Nobody is born insecure, angry, bored, or depressed. The fact is, happiness is our natural state and, as psychologist Dr. Joseph J. Luciani explains in this warm, witty, and empowering guide, chronic unhappiness is just a bad habit–a habit that can be broken.

It’s much easier than you think! Based on Dr. Luciani’s twenty-five years of experience helping patients unlearn reflexive, destructive thinking, The Power of Self-Coaching arms you with all the tools you need to free yourself from your mental and emotional traps. As you work through the many self-quizzes, training and coaching exercises, and Power Drills, you’ll see yourself anew and feel yourself growing lighter, more spontaneous, and ready to take charge of your life.

A proven five-step program for reconnecting with the innate capacity for happiness, The Power of Self-Coaching gives you what you need to:

* Identify learned patterns of thought and feelings that are making you unhappy

* Use Dr. Luciani’s celebrated Self-Talk techniques to develop new, healthy ways of thinking and feeling

* Eliminate boredom, hopelessness, chronic fatigue, and emotional numbness from your life

* Tap your full creative, intellectual, and emotional potential and live the rich, rewarding life you want and deserve

About the Author: Joseph J. Luciani, Ph.D., has brought his message of hope to millions over the years. A clinical psychologist who has been in private practice for over twenty-five years, he is a frequent lecturer and guest speaker. He is also the author of the bestselling Self-Coaching: How to Heal Anxiety and Depression.

Reviews: "An easy program for freeing yourself from your mental and emotional traps–and leading the life you want and deserve "This empowering book will teach, inspire, and coach you to break the habits of insecurity that prevent you from realizing your spontaneous inner potential for genuine happiness." –John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

"There is nothing more empowering than accepting responsibility. Taking responsibility is not about assuming fault; it is about re-taking the helm and control of your journey in life. This book will help you navigate through the difficulties of personality and behavioral change to more emotional peace." –Dr. Laura Schlessinger, author of The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands

The New book is about $11 but the Used versions are as low as $1.

    How many meetings will this book encompass? New to the group; wondering if this is where I will jump in, but also wondering what kind of commitment I should be expecting to make if I join. Thanks! :)
