Change your self-defeating behavior in 90 days.
Confucius said, “Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.” Yet individuals struggle to change their attitudes and behaviors. Unlike most pop psychology self-help books, John C. Norcross’s manual has a strong scientific foundation. Norcross, a clinical psychologist and professor, asserts that if you apply his step-by-step technique for change, you can dramatically alter your life. While his program contains much common knowledge, it is highly applicable to a broad readership. getAbstract recommends Norcross’s approach to those who want to alter negative habits and behaviors.
In this summary, you will learn
- What five steps to follow to achieve lasting behavioral change
- Why this program may not work for everyone
- How to make it work for you
