“You are about to embark on a hero’s journey.” ―Michael Neill, author of The Inside Out Revolution and The Space Within
Joseph Bailey (licensed clinical psychologist for over 40 years) helped pioneer a new paradigm of resilience called “Three Principles Psychology”. Those who have learned this new understanding of resilience develop an inner strength that enables them to live in the “eye of the hurricane”, even in the most challenging situations.
What is the Transformation Principle? The Transformation Principle is a realization of the fundamental way our mind works, bringing about a “transformative resilience” and radically shifting the way we understand ourselves and our chaotic world. It creates an inner strength that enables us to see that it is our thinking that creates our experience and the quality of our lives.
Burnout prevention and resilience in a changing world. As a leader in the field of addiction therapies and strategies for overcoming fear and burnout, Joseph Bailey has piloted a number of programs on transformative resilience at the Mayo Clinic, The University of Minnesota Medical School, addiction treatment centers, and healthcare facilities. Thousands of students, clients, and professionals have been inspired and educated by his Transformation Principle. He has provided his program of practical tips and proven methods to first responders and a variety of professions including businesses, social service agencies, hospitals, universities, and school communities.
In this ground-breaking book:
- Realize you are the author of your own reality
- Rediscover your innate mental health
- Build your inner strength
