Your Interpersonal Patterns: Looking for Reviewers

I have also written a second book on the Pattern System, which covers five of the interpersonal dimensions-

  • Intimacy,
  • Power
  • Conflict
  • Care
  • Strength

This book covers these dimensions, and their patterns and capacities, in enough detail that you can use it to work on any issues you have in these areas.

It covers the following patterns:

  • Intimacy-Avoiding, Dependent
  • Conflict-Avoiding
  • Judgmental, Defensive
  • People-Pleasing
  • Passive-Aggressive
  • Controlling
  • Rebel
  • Self-Absorbed
  • Caretaking
  • Disowned Anger
  • Angry

Right now I have a rough draft of this book, and I am looking for people who would be willing to read it and give me detailed feedback on it in the next month. I don’t need editing per se. What I need is feedback on the content, the organization of the book, and anything else that grabs you.

If you are willing to put in the time to do this, email me at  earley.jay@gmail.com. Let me know something about who you are and your background that would make you a good reviewer. Thanks.

Here’s an excerpt from Your Interpersonal Patterns.

The Pattern System for Psychotherapists, Part 3

Dimensions

The patterns and capacities are arranged in dimensions, where each dimension corresponds to an area of psychological functioning. There are interpersonal dimensions, such as Intimacy, Conflict, and Power. There are personal dimensions, such as Accomplishment, Pleasure, and Self-Esteem. Each dimension contains two or more patterns and also two or more healthy capacities arranged in a way that makes clear which capacity is a healthy version of each pattern, and which capacity is need to transform each pattern.

You can create a client’s psychological profile by charting which pattern(s) and capacity(s) they have in each dimension. Or you can encourage a client to do this on their own and share it with you.
