Lynn Joseph, Ph.D., Psychologist and Career and Life Transition Consultant, has studied the creation and application of guided imagery technology for twenty-five years, and has used it to journey through many of her own transitions and challenges. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services endorsed her scientifically tested visualization system for its extensive contributions (see the audio CD, The Job-Loss Recovery Program). Dr. Joseph has been featured on hundreds of radio and TV programs nationally and has been cited in such publications as Time and Fortune magazines, and the Washington Post.Review:
Practicing the quick and easy guided imagery exercises psychologist Lynn Joseph recommends could be the best thing you do for yourself and your loved one.
Recognizing that [demanding] daily routine often doesn't leave a caregiver much personal time so necessary for maintaining emotional, physical, and spiritual health, Joseph offers six short yet highly effective guided imagery exercises to renew and revitalize: Boosting Self-Love and Self-Esteem, Planning a Smooth Day, Healing Stressful Feelings, Connecting With Your Future Self, Day's End With Your Higher Self, and Reducing Stress and Sleeping Soundly. While all of these exercises are practical and fit into time-limited down time, some lend themselves to multi-tasking and can be listened to when doing another task such as cooking. All of the guided imagery exercises are ones that should appeal to a wide audience, both those individuals who have performed some meditation or relaxation in the past and those new to the idea of guided imagery. In addition, they fit relatively easily into a harried caregiver's routine and, upon use, they should help make him or her less harried and more able to cope in caring for loved ones and themselves. As a long-time guided imagery practitioner on a personal and a professional level, I find Joseph's exercises and CD among the best. In short, this CD should be in the hands of anyone who provides care to a family member. Highly recommended! --From Disability Resources Online by Sally Rosenthal
