“Seeds of change lie dormant within. Even more than you can imagine will grow there if given a chance.” (Goodier)

Most of us enter the field of psychology with the desire to assist individuals create and sustain healthy change in their lives. We are well trained in a myriad of traditional methodologies as well as dynamic, diverse, therapeutic approaches. What if we were to enhance and augment our current thinking by embracing an organic process of growth, healing, and transformation?

Based on stories from individuals who submitted their experiences of “A SHIFT In My Life” as well as anonymous clients’ stories, I have defined a pathway for individuals who are currently working through dissatisfying circumstances, discomfort, or dis-ease in their lives, and for any individual yearning for significant, sustainable change. In this interactive workshop, attendees will be invited to participate in several phases of a seasonal process of self-growth, unearthing and exploring their own seeds of change while gaining insight into a unique process of SHIFTING Bravely.


1. Given an eight-part process of SHIFTING, participants will identify and explore at least four phases of a seasonal process of self-growth and connect one or more to their process of SHIFTING.

2. Given an eight-part process of SHIFTING, participants will identify and describe at least three phases of struggle or challenge and connect one or more to their process of SHIFTING.

3. Given the importance of “paying attention to our awakening seeds” during the dynamic process of SHIFTING, participants will define one posture for “turning inward” while identifying and describing one or more of their unique pathways for doing so.

4. Given the importance of “sustaining change” during the dynamic process of SHIFTING, participants will identify at least four organic representations of sustainable change while claiming and describing one or more of their own.

What would you do if your child suffered with something so severe it affected every aspect of his life?

Susie Dunham, Midwestern mom and former nurse, never suspected her son Michael
was anything but a typical college student with big dreams until he developed schizophrenia
shortly after his 21st birthday. The Dunham family quickly becomes immersed
in the nightmare world of mental illness in America: psychiatric wards, a seemingly indifferent
nursing staff, and the trial-and-error world of psychotropic meds. Michael's ultimate
recovery and remission comes with plenty of traumatic incidents involving both
ignorance and stigma, but his courage and quest for dignity will inspire all readers.

"Susie Dunham's heroic, heart-rending story is a beacon of light in the darkness of insanity.
It shows that recovery is hard-won but possible for people who develop schizophrenia,
despite a media that sensationalizes them, a society that shuns them, and a
dysfunctional mental healthcare system that fails them miserably."

--Patrick Tracey, author of Stalking Irish Madness: Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia

"Every person in a leadership position needs to take the time to read this moving story
of triumph over adversity."

--State Representative John Adams, Ohio House Minority Whip

"The fact that Michael bravely fought this disease, picked up the pieces and moved beyond
it, should give others hope that one day schizophrenia will be seen as a treatable disease
with no stigma attached."

--Sharon Goldberg, News & Reviews Editor,"NYC Voices": A Journal for Mental Health Advocacy

" Beyond Schizophrenia: Michael's Journey is a book that I couldn't put down. The
story of Michael's parents Susie and Mark who support their son both in good times and
bad really touched me. I really like the way the symptoms of schizophrenia are explained

--Bill MacPhee, Founder/CEO of SZ Magazine
