Stress Reflexes reflecting and affecting Perception of Life
”Personal growth and personal change are enhanced by greater knowledge, understanding of one’s thoughts and feelings and by testing alternative behaviours.
Staffan Garpebring presents his FRAMES theory in this important book on how to deal with stress and so called mind traps.
The FRAMES model eloquently breaks down the change process into understandable and practical parts both for the helper and the client. Applying this model will help to break disruptive patterns that lead to stress reactions and aid the path towards calmness and better mental health”.
