About this book

This volume explores new ground in the area of personal transformation, achieved partly through a person’s volition with a guide or catalyst. The authors research and define the dynamics of paradigmatic-thinking, incorporating a series of case vignettes of personal transitions. They describe impediments to such change, as well as the post-transformation state of mind where vulnerabilities may persist. The resultant need for on going commitment may include guidance or coaching in order to sustain the positive effect of a change in paradigm. An important feature of the book is a case study written by “Rex,” a participant in Dr. Kreuter’s earlier work. Rex has achieved significant change in his thought process, both in how he sees the world (less sinister) and his self-perspective (worthy and connected). An in-depth view of the “new” Rex shows the extent to which change has been possible in one human being. Combined with other evidence of shifting paradigms drawn from a cross-section of therapeutic practice, the authors connect the clinical data with their own developed philosophy on the subject of human behavior and the ability to change with the assistance of a therapist guide to effectuate and sustain such change.

Reviews

"What I call "dysfunctional personal myths," Dr. Eric A. Kreuter and Kenneth M. Moltner, Esq. refer to as "maladaptive schema." These are the beliefs, memories, and emotions that guide people's attitudes and behaviors, and often get them into no end of trouble. This groundbreaking book helps mental health practitioners (as well as anyone else who reads it) identify and change their clients' maladaptive schema into those that are positive, life-affirming, and adaptive. It also presents an original paradigm of consciousness that encompasses all areas of human growth and development, healthy and unhealthy, wise and downright stupid."

"Sadly, the reality of life is that most of us are exposed to trauma of one form or another in our lives.  This book provides access to a fascinating way to think about how such events affect us, and, more importantly, a context and vocabulary to understand and ultimately suggest ways to alleviate the negative consequences of traumatic events on our lives.  As Kreuter and Moltner say, “Unwinding the person’s issues can be a complex undertaking.”  Their book provides intriguing insights and tools to help us on this journey.  The underlining themes of hope and positive attitude support a framework for shifting one’s paradigm and provide the opportunity for real change. 

And don’t skip the afterward and appendices!  They offer intimate insight into the endearing heart and ever-curious mind of author Eric Kreuter and the wonderful family that surrounds him!"
