Core Value Workbook
Core Value has been the central concept of Dr. Stosny’s work since the late 1980s. It has formed the foundation of programs to fulfill your greatest potential: (Soar Above: How to Use the Most Profound Part of Your Brain under Any Kind of Stress; How to Improve Your Marriage without Talking about It: Finding Love beyond Words; Compassionate Parenting.) It’s instrumental in building a solid sense of self (The Powerful Self Workbook) and recovery from betrayal (Living & Loving after Betrayal). It helps prevent anger, resentment, and emotional abuse in love relationships (Love without Hurt; The Boot Camps) and has been used successfully to prevent domestic violence and child abuse (Treating Attachment Abuse: A Compassionate Approach). It is the cornerstone of CompassionPower programs of emotion regulation for anger, anxiety, overeating, and substance abuse.
Deficits in core value are not the only causes of emotional and behavioral problems, most of which need more than core value enhancement. However, it’s impossible to recover from any kind of pain, suffering, or behavioral problem, let alone achieve any kind of happiness, without enhancing core value. Core Value work has helped hundreds of thousands of people, as it helped Dr. Stosny overcome the legacy of a childhood in an abundantly violent home.
