Repeat After Me
What separates Repeat After Me from other books is that rather than being a bystander in your life you are the main participant. It is written so the reader has a hands on tool to do personal work, but is also a fine tool for clinicians to use with clients. Claudia offers a step-by-step self-help workbook that provides a framework and a guide to take you through a process to recognize how your present life is influenced by your past; allow yourself to release the parts of the past you'd like to put behind you; and enable you to take responsibility for how you live your life today. This is not a book that explains how problems came to be as much as it is a book that takes you through a process of letting go of hurtful beliefs and behaviors. While insight is often the precursor to change, insight alone is not enough for most people to create change. People need to believe they deserve positive change and they need to develop skills that make change occur. This book is written to support your belief in your personal worth and assist you in identifying and focusing on skills. Repeat After Me offers you the opportunity to learn how to identify and express feelings, define successes, establish healthy boundaries, recognize intrusive behavior, create healthy rituals, identify needs, recognize strengths, develop realistic expectations and much more. As you complete the exercises you may experience new found feelings and thoughts. Some of the exercises will produce great emotion, others will not. Some will quickly produce great insight; with others you may see the value only after a period of time. This book is not meant to be completed in its entirety in one sitting. The more you are able to be honest about your feelings, the better able you will be to assess your own speed. There are no right or wrong answers. Know that you are not alone - this book was written because of the need of many people.
