We're kicking things off with a look at Valentine's Day and why Sandy's going from "hate it" to "love it". Then we'll talk about a Simple Strategy that will help you keep your sanity in one simple step.

Jude Bijou, author of the award winning book "Attitude Reconstruction" will share tips for handling those critics and controllers who we all encounter at family functions. She'll show us what to do to enjoy ourselves and stop the intrusive or hurtful comments.

Then we'll wrap up in Christmas Corner with 12 tips for saving money on a family ski trip as well as a homemade gift that's perfect for the holidays, birthdays or even as a hostess gift.

   

Jude Bijou is a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFT), an educator in Santa Barbara, California and the author of triple finalist, Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life (Riviera Press, 2011).

As the daughter of a famous pioneer in the field of behavioral child psychology and applied behavior analysis, Jude's upbringing sounds like it would be pretty cool. There was just one problem: she was miserable.

Earning a BA in psychology from Reed College and a master's in psychology from Carleton University, she became a marriage and family therapist. Success was attained, yet something was still missing. Looking eastward, she immersed herself in the world of meditation and Vedic philosophy. The result: an integrated, truly holistic approach to viewing ourselves and our relationships with others. Her award-winning system, Attitude Reconstruction was birthed into the world.

In 1982, Jude launched a private psychotherapy practice and started working with individuals, couples, and groups. She also began teaching communication courses through Santa Barbara City College Adult Education. Word spread about the success of Attitude Reconstruction, and it wasn't long before Jude became a sought-after workshop and seminar leader, teaching her approach to organizations and groups.

The culmination of Jude's groundbreaking work can now be found in Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life. These simple principles have impacted countless clients, seminar participants, and students. And Jude promises this: if we can learn to harness the tools we're intrinsically born with, creating a life full of joy, love, and peace is truly possible, right here, right now.
