7 posts | 8 read | 2 reading | 7 to read
From Dr. Nicole LePera, creator of "the holistic psychologist"the online phenomenon with more than two million Instagram followerscomes a revolutionary approach to healing that harnesses the power of the self to produce lasting change. As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy. Wanting more for her patientsand for herselfshe began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical and spiritual wellness that equips people with the interdisciplinary tools necessary to heal themselves. After experiencing the life-changing results herself, she began to share what shed learned with othersand soon The Holistic Psychologist was born. Now, Dr. LePera is ready to share her much-requested protocol with the world. In How to Do the Work, she offers both a manifesto for SelfHealing as well as an essential guide to creating a more vibrant, authentic, and joyful life. Drawing on the latest research from a diversity of scientific fields and healing modalities, Dr. LePera helps us recognize how adverse experiences and trauma in childhood live with us, resulting in whole body dysfunctionactivating harmful stress responses that keep us stuck engaging in patterns of codependency, emotional immaturity, and trauma bonds. Unless addressed, these self-sabotaging behaviors can quickly become cyclical, leaving people feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, and unwell. In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers readers the support and tools that will allow them to break free from destructive behaviors to reclaim and recreate their lives. Nothing short of a paradigm shift, this is a celebration of empowerment that will forever change the way we approach mental wellness and self-care.

“Children are meant to be seen, not
heard.” ...This mindset was born
out of an understanding that the only needs children had were basic,
such as food and shelter. Resource scarcity was a reality for many
members of these generations, many of whom were locked in
survival mode. These adults often defined successful parenting as
the fulfillment of basic survival needs with little energy or attention
left for emotional needs...

Book club pick. I was unfamiliar with the author or her Instagram. There are some nice insights that may apply to many of us, but ultimately this is how one woman dealt with her trauma. LePera writes how self healing ultimately can only be done by the individual, but then builds upon idea that she is THE teacher and this is THE work that is to be done. This one size fits all is problematic and takes away from the helpful aspects of the book.

I really appreciated so much of this book and am thankful for much of the authors perspective. It is a little out of my typical read but I received much from it. I felt that chapters on consciousness, inner child, and ego were the most helpful personally. I would do well to reread them in the near future.

An interesting read about a more holistic outlook towards psychology and dealing with ways of overcoming self sabotage to live a better more fulfilling life. I didn't find it to be a mind-blowing or particularly life changing self help book for me, maybe I prefer my psychology to be more old school. In parts it felt like Nicole was spruiking herself and her approaches a bit too much for my liking. ⭐⭐

A lot of information here is more applicable to people in romantic relationships than me as an aro person. Hence the so-so.

This is a guide to healing yourself without therapy. It is a way to work through your childhood trauma and become more aware of how that affects your adult life. The part I found the most useful was mind-body healing. I was familiar with much of it, but I‘m always interested in new perspectives. Read both print & audio.

Cinfhen I don‘t read too many self help books, although the older I get the more I recognize I could probably benefit greatly from reading them 😜 14mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I didn‘t until recently, but I‘ve gotten some good advice on which might apply to me. This is the first one that hasn‘t been a great fit. 14mo
