Simple Diagrams & Definitions

Good Therapy can be achieved through learning and applying key principles of psychology. Simple diagrams and definitions help people understand/visualize abstract principles (i.e. good communication, trust, love, respect, etc). Catherine wrote 2 textbooks that teach seven key diagrams and definitions as a basis of good therapy.

“The Seven Principles for Creating Your Authentic Life” explains how positive beliefs and behaviors create order in life–in  communication, in relationships, and at work.  Using the metaphor of a flourishing tree, you will learn basic TA principles.

Includes 17 short video clips explaining important principles. Both books are available for your Mac or an iPad, available at the iBookstore or iTunes.

The second book is called “The Seven Principles: Book 2 How People Get Stuck in Life”. You will understand how negative beliefs and behaviors cause problems in life–in  communication, in relationships, and at work. The book includes 17 videos and exercises will help you identify and change these beliefs and behaviors–and get un-stuck.
