IN THIS SUMMARY

Many people spend years trying to quit their smoking or drinking habits, lose weight, save money, or improve relationships. These efforts often fail because few of these people formulate plans before they begin. In Changeology, university professor and clinical psychologist John C. Norcross has designed a ninety-day plan that lays the groundwork for people who are seeking positive changes in their lifestyles. Norcross insists that people can change their lives on their own, without the assistance of expensive psychologists, therapists, athletic trainers and other professionals. Through his 30 years of research, Norcross has discovered that more than three-quarters of people who change their behavioral problems have done so on their own, without professional treatment. Call it self-reliance, the “do-it-yourself nation,” or the “Home Depot effect,” but the most common way that people can change is on their own.
