Présentation de l'éditeur

"If someone told you that you could quickly and radically transform your life and increase your feelings of self worth—without having to undergo elaborate psychotherapy, a long-term major personality overhaul, or take anti-depressants—would you want to know how? Read this book now! You'll find powerful processes for creating self-acceptance and self-love." —Michele Weiner-Davis, MSW, couple therapist and best selling author.

For years, the world of psychotherapy has recognized the power of a good self-concept, and used words like self-esteem and self-worth in vague ways, but without any specific ways to make changes in it. Often therapists encourage and compliment clients, but even at best that can only provide "other-worth" rather than self-worth. When asked the question “How do you build good self-esteem?” most therapists and authors look to exploring the childhood or looking at motivating factors—in other words, years of therapy directed at the content of the past, rather than finding out how the past is maintained in the present.

Transforming Your Self shows another way. While history was important in creating the current structure, it is much easier and faster to examine and work directly with the structure itself. For instance, it took me only about 15 minutes to help a man realize that he was lovable, and you can read a free verbatim transcript of that session and follow-up (which is also in the book) showing exactly what I said and did to help him make this change at:

Steve Andreas has been at the forefront of the behavioral change field for four decades now. In Transforming Your Self, he has analyzed in detail the internal building blocks of a healthy self-concept, and clearly and precisely explains how to use these for rapid change. Steve Andreas’ customary clarity, warmth, and humor. offer clear, step-by-step instructions, exercises, case studies, and transcripts of actual sessions. These all show the simple methods that you can use to create a more positive, durable, accurate, self-correcting, and connected sense of yourself.

A major topic is what you can do to change a negative self-concept into one that is more positive and satisfying. You can read a free chapter from the book on this topic at:

Another major topic is the arrogant and egotistic self that results from an uncertain or ambiguous self-concept, and how to integrate this underlying polarity, which has sometimes been called the “shadow self” or the “dark side” of the self.

Read this book and use the methods to become more of the person you would like to be.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Really New Kind of Change 29 mai 2003
Par Professional Trader - Publié sur
Transforming Your Self is a work as ambious as its title. It describes what your identity is made of, how it works, and how to use this knowledge to change who you are. Author Steve Andreas, once a student of Abraham Maslow, editor of Fritz Perls, and then popularizer of Richard Bandler and John Grinder, has already made numerous contributions to various fields including NLP. With this cognitive modelling of self-concept, Steve solidifies his reputation as an NLP innovator. Steve's ideas about self-concept correspond with Robert Dilts' idea of Identity level change and enriches it with many new distinctions and techniques including: how we create continuity of experience, how feedforward patterns lead to our futures, and how our mental processes act upon themselves. It will be no surprise to people who know Steve's work, that all this is clearly explained along with easy to follow exercises which enable the interested reader to create a more durable, accurate, self-correcting, and connected sense of self. The identity change processes are a mix of classic NLP patterns and distinctions applied in new ways with these new understandings. The NLP jargon has been kept to a minimum.
Steve introduces an important new concept into NLP and popular psychology - the "summary representation." NLP asserts that understanding a word means accessing a particular experience - often a memory. For example, on hearing the word "dog," you would remember a particular dog. Except only some people do that. Others think of a dog that stands for all dogs, or a cartoon dog, or dogginess. It all depends on the number, and the qualities, of the examples of dog you have to draw on to make your summary representation. The fewer the number of examples, the more impoverished (and caricatured) the representation. The greater the number and variety, the richer. With more abstract words, like the ones we use to describe ourselves - including beliefs, values, and qualities - this gets even more complicated. Each of these words refer to a number of categories each containing examples that are to be summarized. A summary representation is a simplified image of the examples it represents - and therein lies both its strengths and weaknesses. Previous identity change processes have for the most part tried to change a person's summary representation or self image. Steve found that while a self image can be difficult to change directly, the individual examples that it summarizes are easy to change, and cumulatively have profound transformational effects.
What is certain to surprise many motivational speakers and self improvement authors is that not thinking of mistakes or failures actually weakens a person's sense of self, making it rigid, brittle, and perfectionist. Not only can you afford negative thoughts; when handled with processes so easy they can be done conversationally, these "counterexamples" actually strengthen and enrich your sense of self - making it more open to improvement. You also learn the difference between self-concept and self-esteem (and how many of the self-esteem building efforts in American schools are an attempt to have the tail to wag the dog); as well as how 'classic' NLP distinctions like time, perceptual positions, and submodalities combine to create our identities.
This book doesn't say everything there is to say about transforming your self. There are ideas, observations and insights along the way that if they were followed up it would easily have doubled its length. I was particularly struck with Steve's modelling of the structure of paranoia, something wholly unanticipated by him. (A good sign that there is actual NLP modeling going on.)
Among the people who have written about NLP modeling, few of them have actually produce new models. This book offers the reader an opportunity to listen in on an actual modeler of human experience practicing his craft. For all these reasons, Transforming Your Self is likely to be the basis of identity change work for some time to come.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Andreas helps readers transform identity 9 février 2003
Par K. Gerling - Publié sur
The first time I encountered the writing of Steve Andreas was when I read his superb book "Awareness" written under the name John O. Stevens. That was over twenty-five years ago. Since then, Andreas, in his writing and teaching, helped to found NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and to guide NLP towards sensitive morality and technical effectiveness. The subject of this book--transforming your self--is a tricky one. Any book on this subject must guide readers to change their self with--guess what?--their self doing the guiding. This is a complex, paradoxical endeavor, one Andreas deals with well throughout the book through the use of many specific examples. What makes this book and its subject especially important is this: our sense of self influences many aspects of the rest of our lives: our values, our feelings, our relationships, our decisions, our hopes and dreams, and certainly our behaviors. Andreas treats this important subject much like he treats his workshop participants--with care, sensitive guidance and technical skill. He accomplishes this without falling into a review of often confusing and contradictory philosophical theories. Instead, he goes beyond theories to practice. He focuses on what we *can actually do,* to transform our sense of self in the privacy of our own minds. The process Andreas reveals in this book not only helps us to enhance our sense of self, but also offers something else: the book's workshop-style format helps therapists, educators and other professionals to discover how to pass on what they've learned to their clients and students. Parents too can benefit in this way, passing on what they learn to their children. For all of these reasons, I highly recommend Steve Andreas's book, Transforming Your Self: Becoming Who You Want to Be. Kelly Patrick Gerling, Ph.D.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Transforming Your Self 28 janvier 2003
Par Richard Shane, Ph.D. - Publié sur
For years, the world of psychotherapy has used words like self-esteem and self-worth. When posed with the question "How do you build good self-esteem?" most psychotherapists and authors would talk about giving positive regard to a child, etc. Steve Andreas, author of Becoming Who You Want To Be, is the first person I've come across to dissect in detail what are the internal "building blocks" of a healthy self-concept. His thinking is clear and precise and the models he presents (for building healthy self-concept) are well layed out and fairly easy to follow. Some of the ideas are revolutionary. Steve's humor and humanity make this book heartfelt and very enjoyable to read. Even if you use just some of the information, I predict it will change your thinking and actions. The world needs all the positive help it can get. Tell others about this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the real deal. 16 janvier 2003
Par Don Aspromonte, MBA - Publié sur
Working at the identity level can be very spooky, so many people and therapists avoid it. Steve has developed an effective approach that is respectful of THE PERSON YOU ARE while you gently BECOME THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE. Steve shows you how to build on your stengths systematically. Humor and some pretty good jokes make the read fast and fun. I slowed down enough to actually do some of the exercises and found some new stuff for My Self. I recommend this book for anyone who is interested in helping others improve their lives, or who just wants to learn some new ways to enrich their own life experience.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Andreas comes through again 14 avril 2007

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Steve Andreas creates a masterful book with Transforming Yourself!

Written primarly from the transcripts of seminars he presented on the topic, you'll find countless examples of application....something many so called "how to" books fail to provide.

If you will STOP...and actually do the exercises provided at the end of each section, you're sure to come away with a structural change of your self concept, one that will support you in anything else you might desire to do or achieve.
