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 Black 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 iIdentify and express feelings, define successes, establish healthy boundaries, recognize intrusive behavior, create healthy rituals, identify needs, recognize strengths. develop realistic expectations and much more.

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.
Repeat After Me literally saved my life. Without your organization and probing, directed questioning I would never have been able to perform such deep introspection.
I use this book with nearly all of my clients and it's amazing. They come to me for depression, relationship problems, work problems and it all goes back to old beliefs and survival behaviors. Repeat After Me is my therapy bible.
It's such a relief to finally have real, practical help in such a thoughtful well written book.
Your book was given to me by my counselor and is giving me a new insight on life. Thank you for being a new and fresh part of my recovery.
