About the Course:

After listening to her clients mention and then discount the positive events and memories they had experienced, Barbara Holstein realized that psychotherapy as it is commonly practiced today focuses almost exclusively on client “pathology”. Her conclusion is that clients cannot feel complete until their strengths, rather than their problems, become the fulcrum for therapy . She outlines and details her thoughts on the matter in The Enchanted Self, describing a new therapy designed for both therapists and therapy clients seeking to promote positive change based on a core of psychological and life-experience based health and strength.

This course is based on the book, Enchanted Self: A Positive Therapy (New Directions in Therapeutic Intervention) created by Barbara Becker Holstein, Ed.D. in 0.
