From the inside front cover:
From Dr. Nicole LePera, creator of @the.holistic.psychologist, comes a revolutionary approach to healing that harnesses the power of the self to produce lasting change.
As a clinical psychologist, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of her profession. Wanting more for her patients--and for herself--she developed a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual wellness that equips people with the information and tools to heal themselves. She began to share these resources on her Instagram account, @the.holistic.psychologist, and soon millions started seeking her advice. A movement was born.
Now, in How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers both a manifesto for the SelfHealers movement as well as an essential guide to creating a more authentic, joyful life. Drawing on the latest science from epigenetics, polyvagal theory, microbiome research, and more, Dr. LePera presents an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to mind-body-soul wellness unlike any other.
SelfHealing requires a daily commitment to small, sustainable actions that cumulatively lead to lasting change. In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera shows readers how to recognize their core beliefs, identify conditioned thought patterns, and tune in to their own intuition in a process of reconnecting to their true Selves. Throughout this process, readers may recognize the lasting impact of past experiences and traumas on current relationships, beliefs, and behaviors. These behaviors--which are, in part, a product of physiological stress responses in the body--can keep people stuck in frustrating, painful patters of codependency and self-betrayal.
In How to Do the Work, Dr. LePera offers eye-opening wisdom and practical resources that can help anyone create meaningful change and break free of destructive patterns. Nothing short of a paradigm shift in mental wellness, this book celebrates the power of individuals to heal themselves and reimagine their potential.
