DEA Meeting: Dr. Paul Chafetz

DEA Meeting: Dr. Paul Chafetz

Dr. Maude Cejudo introduced Dr. Paul Chafetz, our newest author and a practicing clinical psychologist since 1982!

Dr. Paul showed us a picture of "his sandbox", his office, where he spends all day in the private world of his patients, in their minds and hearts.  Dr. Paul see patients from age 21 - 101.  Everyone is different!  He might spend his morning with patients coping with chronic pain or physical disease or the disease of a loved one.  Some are coping with an unhappy marriage or mental illness in themselves or their spouse.  After lunch, his patients may have difficult parents or be young people trying to find their place in the world.

From Simon Senek's model of Why? How? What?, Dr. Paul shared that his "Why?" is his belief that our job in life is to continue growing by learning from cradle to grave.  The "How?" of his approach is that we talk about their experience of being "them" with the goal of turning the challenges of life into building blocks of a better "you".  Dr. Paul believes that life is a journey of continual growth that takes us through a succession of stages, which are bridged by transitions.  The past is gone, the next stage is waiting for us, and we are in transition on the threshold of our future.  His "What?" is managing transitions in adulthood.

In lieu of a booksigning, Dr. Paul is having a raffle for a $50 Topgolf gift certificate and Topgolf gift bags!  To learn how to enter the raffle, select "Read More..." below!
