About the Book



Two renowned psychologists offer an innovative approach to solving long-term emotional problems based on the proven principles of cognitive therapy. As seen on Oprah, this guide shows how to effectively change negative thought patterns.



Book Synopsis



Learn how to end the self-destructive behaviors that stop you from living your best life with this breakthrough program.

Do you...
- Put the needs of others above your own?
- Start to panic when someone you love leaves--or threatens to?
- Often feel anxious about natural disasters, losing all your money, or getting seriously ill?
- Find that no matter how successful you are, you still feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or undeserving?

Unsatisfactory relationships, irrational lack of self-esteem, feelings of being unfulfilled--these are all problems that can be solved by changing the types of messages that people internalize. These self-defeating behavior patterns are called "lifetraps," and Reinventing Your Life shows you how to stop the cycle that keeps you from attaining happiness.

Two of America's leading psychologists, Jeffrey E. Young, Ph.D., and Janet S. Klosko, Ph.D., draw on the breakthrough principles of cognitive therapy to help you recognize and change negative thought patterns, without the aid of drugs or long-term traditional therapy. They describe eleven of the most common lifetraps, provide a diagnostic test for each, and offer step-by-step suggestions to help you break free of the traps. Thousands of men and women have seen the immediate and long-term results of the extraordinary program outlines in this clear, compassionate, liberating book. Its innovative approach to solving ongoing emotional problems will help you create a more fulfilling, productive life.



Review Quotes




Praise for Reinventing Your Life

"Several of the most painful petards upon which people become hoisted during an unhappy childhood are neatly dispatched here by two cognitive therapists, who attack 11 common 'lifetraps'--destructive patterns that underlie a variety of emotional problems. Young and Klosko ably demonstrate how to deal with issues of abandonment, dependence, trust, social rejection, emotional deprivation, failure and vulnerability. They provide meaningful case histories, perceptive descriptions, diagnostic tests and a variety of nugget-sized, easily understood lists detailing the causes, danger signs and effects of negative impulses and actions, as well as ways to short-circuit them."--Publishers Weekly

"Using illustrations from case studies, the authors describe each lifetrap, discuss its origins in childhood experience, and provide a questionnaire for self-assessment. They then offer a program for change using techniques ranging from experiential (getting in touch with your inner child) to cognitive (writing a 'case' against your lifetrap) and behavioral (identifying specific behaviors to be changed)."--Library Journal
