MATURATION: THE ADULT PARADIGM Clarifies Boundary Between Adolescent and Adult Development

From author Skipi Lundquist Smoot, PhD, comes a revealing definition of the Adult Developmental Stage of Psychological Maturation, which serves as the necessary "Missing Link" for development of Unique Personal Potential, comfort with emotional and personal separation, and ability to live in harmony with the Essence of both one's self and the significant others. In The "MAP"readers will get a better and clearer understanding of the Map of Reality that runs through the fabric of the Universe and is filled with Laws of Cause & Effort.

This book targets different audiences and aims to help these groups in their respective self-development needs. For adult readers who are searching for a resolution of psychological and relationship problems, this acts as a Self-Help book that teaches a clear, logical method for resolving conflicts, coping with stress, and making successful decisions in both personal and relationships with important others. For mental health professionals, this serves as a guide to treatment of adult Symbiotic Attachment, a model for use in marriage and family psychotherapy, and a help to parents dealing with problematic older adolescents. For colleges and universities, this book acts as educational resources for both teaching and learning up-to-date information concerning the science of psychology. For psychological organizations, this reading is an insightful guide for presentations at professional meetings.

The author hopes that readers will follow The "MAP" and learn to dance to the Music of Reality, to enable them to discover and to be comfortable with their "Real" self.
