A research-based toolkit for turning challenging times into a springboard for healing, insight, and new beginnings.
The trauma, loss, and uncertainty of our world have led many of us to ask life’s big questions. Who are we? What is our higher purpose? And how do we not only live through but thrive in the wake of tragedy, division, and challenges to our fundamental way of living?
Choose Growth is a practical workbook designed to guide you on a journey of committing to growth and the pursuit of self-actualization every day. Created by renowned psychologist and host of The Psychology Podcast Scott Barry Kaufman and positive medicine physician and researcher Jordyn Feingold, this is an evidence-based toolkit—a compendium of exercises intimately grounded in the latest research in positive psychology and the core principles of humanistic psychology that help us all navigate whatever choppy waters we find ourselves in.
Topics include fostering secure attachment, setting healthy boundaries, practicing radical self-acceptance, and more—and each exercise is grounded in the latest research from the fields of psychology and positive medicine.
Whether you’re healing from loss, adapting to the new normal, or simply looking ahead to life’s next chapter, this supportive and insightful guide will help you steer yourself to calmer waters—and deeper connection to your values, your life vision, and ultimately your most authentic self.
