Reinventing Your Life: The Breakthrough Program to End Negative Behaviour


Product Description

Published USA, 1993
Jeffrey Young's bestseller provides the framework for his work on schema-focused therapy which has culminated in the publication of his 2003 text, Schema Therapy: A Practitioner's Guide. In Reinventing Your Life, Young addresses eleven chronic, self-defeating personality patterns known in the book as lifetraps. His Lifetrap Therapy provides a unifying framework with techniques drawn from several approaches, primarily cognitive-behavioural. He tackles, for example, abandonment, mistrust and abuse, emotional deprivation, social exclusion and vulnerability, in a pioneering work.

Jeffrey Young is founder and director of the Cognitive Therapy Centres of New York and Conneticut, and the Schema Therapy Institute in New York City
