"Finally, a unique habit change book that will appeal to counselors and students as well as clients. Meg Selig's Changepower! synthesizes the wisdom of the greatest minds in psychology so we can apply their techniques to our daily lives. Read this book.

More About the Author

I wrote "Changepower" to help people who wanted to stop harmful habits and/or create helpful ones. As a longtime counselor, I'd had plenty of experience with people struggling to change. So my favorite compliment about my book was when a reader told me, "As I was reading, I felt that you were sitting beside me, encouraging me to keep on and giving me gentle advice to help me stay on my chosen path." What more could a counselor ask?

I was a counselor for over 30 years. For the last 20+ years, I've been a counselor and teacher at St. Louis Community College. My current work as an author and freelance writer is just an extension of my former career. My goal is to write about counseling topics in a way that entertains and helps my readers.

I first became obsessed with the topic of habit change after a beloved aunt died of lung cancer. Her seeming inability to quit smoking haunted me for many years. When I later discovered research about successful habit change, I decided to create a "Habit Change" class for people who wanted to make positive changes in their lives. Although now retired from clinical work, I've continued to teach this class each semester since 2001. Many of my students' success stories appear in Changepower.

I'm a frequent speaker on radio and TV shows, as well as for national counseling conferences, community organizations, and educational groups. I also write the Changepower blog at the Psychology Today website: psychologytoday.com/blog/changepower.

Would you like to teach a "Habit Change" class? Take a look at my prepared materials at my website, changepower.net.

Format: Paperback
As a professional helper myself I am rarely, if ever, impressed with self-help books. Changepower is the exception. As a counselor herself with a wealth of experience, Meg Selig provides techniques that are used by professional helpers. I like the upbeat tone of the book. The strategies are easy to follow. I have recommended this book to my students as well as clients. Most of today's "get real" self-improvement books are to embarrassing to recommend. This book will cost you a lot less than seeing a therapist and could provide you with all the help you need. And yes it is written by the same Meg Selig that writes the spirited blogs for Psychology Today.

Format: Paperback
I don't read many self-help books,but I thought, "Okay, I'll use it to bump up my motivation to lose the five pounds I gained over Christmas. By the time I finished I was revved up to tackle the massive clutter in my basement! (I've already dropped the weight, and the basement is coming along.) Selig has a very readable style and a step-by-step approach, backed up with the psychological research and enriched with fascinating stories of success (and failure) from her students. She guides you to reflect on your own sources of motivation and provides a great, practical "toolbox." The book is a good companion to revisit when the "change" energy flags.

Format: Paperback
I love this book. Most books on this subject are pure hype, telling you to go eat nothing but grapefruit or "just quit" smoking (which is fine for a few, but....)
Meg Selig knows all the research about exactly how to set up the stages of change for yourself--the stages that successful "changers" have done with whatever habit they are breaking. She makes it simple. If you understand those stages, you know what you're going through, you won't backslide as easily, and you can understand the occasional lapse and still keep going toward your goal. Also, the author is a cheerleader all the way; the book is very optimistic.

Do you have a habit you want to change? A habit you kinda wish you wanted to change? Would you like to form a new good habit? In all of these cases, "Change Power" offers practical, step-by-step advice to help you get where you want to go. Based on solid research as well as personal experience, “Change Power” provides an in-depth look at the process of change, including ways to deal with those pesky relapses that cause so many people to give up before they have reached their goal. Helpful exercises scattered throughout the book and headed "Try This" allow readers to customize their program, while personal success stories, including the author’s own story of how she broke the smoking habit, provide inspiration. Ending the book on a positive note, “Celebrating and Moving On,” author Meg Selig also assures readers that they can find “additional inspiration, tips, and advice” at her website: [...].
