Bobby G. Bodenhamer, author and NLP psychotherapist and trainer
Here is a book whose psychological foundation about dysfunctional behaviours is solid. The problem behaviours covered include guilt, anxiety, self-worth, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), phobias and depression, among others. Terence focuses on those problem behaviours common to humanity and makes the explanations of these dysfunctional behaviours understandable to the layperson. Indeed, much of the book’s content is a readable behavioural description of those problem behaviours and they are worth far more than the cost of the book. What makes the key difference, however, are the several step-by-step patterns – the aim of which is to make dysfunctional behaviours functional.
The first three chapters are foundational to the entire book. They are well written and in language familiar to most readers. You would be wise not to skip these chapters before jumping to a specific pattern of interest to you. The book contains a lot of psychology explaining the problem issues, what they accomplish and the physio-psychological concepts that underpin the patterns. The author has also wisely formatted the procedures so that you can record them for replay and processing.
I highly recommend this book to both the individual as well as the counsellor and psychotherapist.
