Change the Goal, Not the Feeling

A psychologist’s six-step roadmap to a life beyond happiness—one of sustainable lifetime satisfaction.

In Beyond Happiness, Dr. Guttman lays out six techniques that will empower you to gain control over your own happiness: avoiding assumptions; reducing people-pleasing behaviors; facing fears; making decisions; closing; and active self-reinforcement.

The immense success that Dr. Guttman has had using these techniques within her practice is a testament to just how effective they are. She has shown how moving beyond happiness to satisfaction and contentment is a very achievable and rewarding journey.

About the Author

Dr. Jennifer Guttman received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Long Island University. She began her career working at a family homeless shelter in New York. When she found that traditional protocols made it difficult for people to access her services, she fought to ensure that every resident could meet with her as often as they needed, eagerly working day and night to fulfill requests for services. Motivated by a desire to reach even more people, she started lecturing and opened a private practice. Her approach fuses traditional cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques with her own core methods, which have been developed and refined through thirty-plus years of personal interaction with her clients. The combination of these innovative methods and her unparalleled empathic abilities has enabled her to have a profound impact on thousands of patients from diverse walks of life.
