Book Description

The Wake Up and Dream Challenge is more than a self-help book. Using vivid stories Dr. Barbara Lavi, clinical psychologist, shows how clients charted their way to happy more fulfilling lives. At any age, rich or poor, healthy or physically challenged, this book will start you on a path to transform your life. Originally, the author's intent was to write a self-help book about the innovative techniques she developed over the course of her career. When she used her own Dream Positioning System (DPS), the book became part of her dream legacy, a book that can change the world. Dr. Lavi challenges you to help her "Dream It Forward!" She created an every man's version of the Bill & Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet's Giving Pledge. Dr. Lavi will donate half of the profits to 21 creative nonprofit organizations to improve the lives of countless individuals

Reading The Wake Up And Dream Challenge, has changed my life. I fell into a point in my life where I felt frozen. I had my dreams, but was not able to pursue them in an organized manner. I would have days where I would do some tasks to advance, but then I would fall back into feeling frustrated and not knowing what to do next. I started to go weeks and sometimes months without doing anything. When I heard about Dr. Lavi's book, I thought I would give it a try. I met Dr. Lavi at a networking meeting and was instantly intrigued by her dream concept and devotion to helping others.
I have been diligently following her dream plan and feel incredibly empowered without the anxiety that I felt earlier of not knowing what to do next. After the plan is put together, it is amazing how simple it feels to advance your dreams in such a non stressful way. Although I think Dr. Lavi's book is helpful to anybody that wants to make their dreams come true, I also wish that I had her book when I was a college student. Looking back to my college days, it is incredibly difficult to decide what you really want to do at such a young age. It is even more difficult, once you decide what you want, to figure out how to get there. I believe Dr. Lavi's book should have a dedicated class, and become a prerequisite for all students, college and high school. Giving this book to anybody that wants to plan their future, is stuck in a bad situation , or wants to enjoy every crumb of their time on this earth, would receive the best gift that one could ever want, the key to living life to it's fullest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Make Your Dreams Your Reality April 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
"The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams." ~ Oprah

Barbara Lavi is the type of person that helps people realize their dreams no matter how bad their circumstances might seem. She believes that despair and depression can be avoided if you have hope and a dream. In this book she presents interesting case studies that show you how others have made their dreams come true. This book discusses things like magical thinking, goal setting and how to turn off your inner critic. Half the book is about fulfilling your dreams and half is about creative nonprofit organizations.

~The Rebecca Review

I received a free copy of this book for review. This review is my honest opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Die With Your Dream Still In You April 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was surprised at the depth and width of this book. From the title, I wrongly assumed it was just about dreams during sleep. Now, I recognize that it is a guidebook for recognizing our basic yearning and stretching towards something better and bigger than we already have.

As much as I loved the stories of resiliency (a subject, I also have written a book about), I especially enjoyed the stories of Dr. Lavi's family and their dreams and strategies towards individual and family goals. This is a book I will re-read and then share with the young college interns who work with me. Many need this sort of plan and direction in order to find their dreams in life.

The non-profits listed were of great interest and some I will follow up with soon.

More About the Author

Dr. Lavi, a Licensed Psychologist since 1978, worked & trained in the Boston area before moving to Westport, CT in 2000. She holds a Master's Degree in Clinical Child Psychology & a Doctorate in Professional Psychology.

While in Boston, she consulted to Lawrence, Methuen, Andover & Burlington public schools, was on the staff of Harvard Community Health Plan, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate, & was Clinical Director of The Delphi Center of Burlington.

Dr. Lavi founded ACT Now Psychotherapy utilizing her unique active, creative, time-sensitive approach to therapy. Creativity is an integral part of Dr. Lavi's life & her therapeutic approach. Music, dance, writing & crafts are hobbies that have been utilized in her work with children, as well as adults. She also writes songs & has organized creativity enhancement workshops for other writers.

She tailors her work to meet each client's unique needs. Drawing from a wide range of expertise & experience, she collaboratively develops the best therapeutic plan for each client. Clients are actively involved in the process. Time-sensitive therapy is as brief as possible, but the therapeutic relationship lasts for a lifetime. Depending on the issues addressed, some clients may be in therapy for a few months while others may come for a few years. After completing a segment of therapy, over the years, clients often return for a tune up or to consult about a new issue or life challenge. Each time a client returns, therapy tends to be briefer.

Dr. Lavi works with children & adults utilizing individual, couple, family, & group therapy. She utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis & EMDR. Her areas of specialization include: divorce, anxiety, fears, phobias, loss, illness & trauma. Dr. Lavi currently maintains a private practice in Weston, CT. - See more at:
