Volunteers Needed to Test Self-Therapy Journey

Self-TherapyJourneyLogo

I have been working hard over the last 6 months improving Self-Therapy Journey, my online tool for psychological healing and personal growth.

I have gotten a lot of great feedback from people who have tested it for me, and now I need some more help.

I need volunteers who are not already familiar with Self-Therapy Journey. It will take about an hour with you on your computer and on the phone or Skype with me. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please email me at earley.jay@gmail.com and

  1. Your phone number of Skype name
  2. Your time zone
  3. Put “STJ Tester” in the subject line

I probably won’t need help from everyone who volunteers, at least right away, so wait for my response.

The Pattern System®: Psychological Healing and Personal Development

Dimensions of the Pattern SystemThe Pattern System® provides a detailed understanding of your personality that is oriented toward psychological healing and personal development. It also can help you understand other people–why they respond as they do and what makes them tick.

Once you have understood the Pattern System and thoroughly explored yourself according to its model, you will come away with a comprehensive map of your psyche. You will be able to see your strengths and your defenses, the structure of your inner conflicts, and what you need to explore next to resolve the issues that are most important to you. You will also discover where you hold underlying pain, shame, or fear that must be healed.
 
You will also learn about the leading edge of your growth–which psychological capacities you can develop (or are already developing) to make your life happier and more productive. You will see how to ground your spiritual development in higher functioning in your life.
 
Therapists, coaches, and other helping professionals can use the Pattern System to understand the detailed psychological structure and dynamics of their clients.
 
The Pattern System recognizes and reflects the complexity of the human psyche. In the Pattern System, each dysfunctional pattern and healthy capacity describes just one aspect of your personality, and you will have many of them. In fact, the richness of the Pattern System fosters an attitude of looking deeply in order to understand the uniqueness and multifaceted features of your personality.
 
One of the important aspects of the Pattern System is that your profile can change over time. In fact, the distinction between problematic patterns and healthy capacities gives you explicit information about those aspects of your psyche that can change through therapy, coaching, or other personal growth work-specifically how patterns can be transformed into capacities.
 
The Pattern System is potent for psychological healing and personal growth when integrated with Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS).

Self-Therapy Journey is an online tool that integrates the Pattern System with IFS; you can use it for both deep psychological healing and behavior change.

Self-Therapy Journey (STJ) is a new interactive web program that enables you to systematically classify, explore, and transform your psychological issues. You can think of it as a sophisticated and interactive set of self-help books, plus guided meditations and customized reports. STJ is based on IFS and the Pattern System.

What can STJ help you do?

  • Resolve problems like procrastination, shyness, or depression
  • Transform behavior patterns like dependency, controlling, or people-pleasing
  • Navigate through defenses
  • Heal emotional wounds
  • Create a complete psychological profile for yourself

How does STJ work?

  • It provides recorded guided meditations for deep exploration.
  • It generates a customized report for each of your patterns.
  • It guides you in creating homework practices.
  • It transforms problems into healthy capacities.
  • It helps you track your progress.

In this course, you will learn how Self-Therapy Journey works and how to get the most out of it.

The Pattern System is a systematic approach to understanding your personality that can lead directly to psychological healing and personal growth.  It also helps you to understand other people—why they respond as they do, what makes them tick.

In this course, you will also learn about the Pattern System—how to chart your personality, and how to choose which patterns and capacities to work on in STJ.

By taking this course, you will be able to get access to the Therapist-Guided Version of STJ that includes Stage 2 work on childhood wounds, if this is appropriate for you.
