“This book is a tour de force of motivation for life enrichment. I was intrigued by the hypothesis that self-beliefs impact mental health and physical wellness as well as interpersonal relationships. Written by three licensed therapists, this easy-to-read book illustrates through individual accounts and engaging activities how anyone can use Key Skills to address trauma and other disorders. By developing Positive Core Beliefs, each person can create a constructive sense of self. The principles set forth in “Key Core Beliefs” have taken on a personal significance for a member of my family who was traumatized. In my reading, it became increasingly clear that there is so much of value in this book. This book explores added opportunities for treatment effectiveness. I comfortably recommend “Key Core Beliefs” to any person or therapist seeking the unique clinical perspectives and in-depth contributions to mental health that is contained within its pages.”
