Online PR News – 28-September-2012 – Fuengirola – Fuengirola, Spain, September 28, 2012 -- How “Pressing Pause” can be all that’s needed to make a life changing difference!
How helpful would it be if we could occasionally just pause – freeze time like they do in the movies for a few moments and consider the consequences of the actions we are about to take?
If we “paused” for a second think how things might turn out differently? Would you snap at your husband or wife so sharply? Would you shout at your child when they’re winding you up? Would your child think twice about bullying in the playground? Would a young gang teenager think of the consequences of their actions if they pulled a knife?
Pause Button Therapy is a proven, innovative and interactive new therapy technique that allows you to do exactly this, empowering you to break out of negative habits and unconscious responses. PBT is based on an incredibly simple idea, but can be used for a whole host of issues. It provides additional thinking time, allowing a person to consider the potential consequences of their actions and adjust their behaviour accordingly.
PBT has been hugely successful in the treatment of everything from addictions and weight issues to depression, anxiety and relationship problems, and this book will show you the many ways in which you can use it to transform your experience of life!
This is a simple, practical, effective technique that even a young child can grasp. PBT uses the idea of the Pause, Rewind, Fast Forward and Play buttons on a remote control device to help people give themselves more thinking time when faced with decisions. It teaches them how to ensure that they make the best possible use of that time to weigh up the potential consequences of their actions. This allows them to incorporate a blend of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy with PBT to live more effectively in the present.
With countless successful case studies the authors have treated with PBT and with plans to make this therapy available to schools, colleges, businesses and within the prison services this book and the Shirrans’ work will leave a lasting testament that just “pausing” for a second or two and thinking of the consequences of a single action can have an incredibly transformative effect on one’s and other’s lives.
