I also should mention that Dr. Luciani has a very fine web site where an entire lecture he gave is on line. Even more impressively, there is a forum where you can e-mail him your concern and he will e-mail you back the next day (I've corresponded with him in this manner twice). He obviously puts a lot of thought and effort into what he does, which is to attempt to eliminate anxiety and depression in people's loves.
It does seem to me to rely on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-question your assumptions and beliefs, change them and you'll change your world). I think the main difference is something in Dr. Luciani's method (Self Coaching) and particularly the emphasis on how insecurity infiltrates our thinking at an almost imperceptible level. I've paid attention to CBT over the years, but had never made the connection of using it on anxiety which as Dr. Luciani points out, comes from insecurity.
It's conceivable that a person will still need professional help, not because the method has any flaws but because anxiety and depression can take root in our thinking so deeply, that one could still not be seeing themselves in an unbiased way. Meaning the thoughts that perpetuate insecurity look so "normal" to our mind, that you need an outside opinion.
The book has some methods of keeping track of your behavior etc., so at first it's another thing you have to add to your daily routine, which for people with anxiety or depression may see like a hassle. But it's not. It takes a bit of regimen to unravel years of tangled up thoughts. It's practical and doable and well worth the purchase.
While other psychologists teach the benefits of "mindfulness," meditation, yoga, and guided image therapy, I find his approach to be a lot simpler and down to earth, and quite frankly, much more dude-like. Today, I recommend Self-Coaching for the divorced men who I mentor, since it is essential to overcome anger, learn forgiveness, look forward to the future, and build confidence. All the things a divorced dude must learn, whether he is the dumper or the dumpee.
God Bless Dr. Joe!
So I can say thank you Dr Luciani to find this method that with this simplicity is soooo effective.
