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.

Introduction to the Pattern System

Jay Earley, Ph.D.

The Pattern SystemSM is a way of understanding your personality in a way 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.

Once your have understood the Pattern System and 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, your places of pain and how you compensate for them. You will understand the structure of your inner conflicts and see the leading edge of your growth. The Pattern System will make clear what you need to explore next to resolve the issues that are most important to you. You will know where there is underlying pain, shame, or fear that must be healed. You will know 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. Researchers can use it as the basis for psychological studies. [Read more…]
