Volume 3


Timeless Effective Treatment!

If you are troubled with excess worry and stress over negative thought, or feel like you have to have constant controls, but cant seem to find it; you have come to the right place.
The CHAANGE program could be your stepping stone to freedom.

Living Your Life Fully

Going all the way when considering treatment of your severe anxiety condition is the goal I'm set to work with when participants turn to me for assistance. Those who speak of, "adjusting to my anxiety" or, "learning to live with it", fall way short of what is possible . Why accept less? With your willingness to participate fully in your recovery from severe anxiety , I believe that people can reach freedom from fear. No, you won't loose your senses, and cross the street without looking each way. You will continue to do what is sensible, what is logical to take care of yourself. You will not, however, go on with irrational fears and restrictions on living your life fully. CHAANGE offers a rewarding path to freedom, and if you have not yet achieved that state, check to see if you are truly implementing all that CHAANGE has taught you. Those of you who are working by yourself are welcome to call me to discuss this issue. I'm particularly excited these days as I use new adjunctive therapeutic techniques with individuals in telephone consultations as well as at my office, when that is possible. Don't settle for anything less than being comfortable and free.

My best wishes to you all,
John R. Pullen, Ph.D.

Featured Affilliate:

Charles R. Barr, Ph. D.
131 N El Molino Ave. #220
Pasadena, CA 91101
(626) 449-5589

We are pleased to present one of our very successful, and expierienced CHAANGE Affilliated Professionals. Dr. Barr is a Clinical Psychologist who practices in Pasadena, California. As a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, School of Psychology he holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and a Masters in Theology, so he is conversant in matters of faith as well as matters of thought, feeling, perception, and learning.

Thanks to the Whittier earthquake in October, 1987, during which he had a massive panic attack, Dr. Barr specialized in treating anxiety disorders in 1988. Dr. Barr has been an affiliate of CHAANGE since 1988.
The treatment of anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, fears, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, social anxiety, etc. have all become of interest to him. A member of the American Psychological Association and the California Psychological Association, he is also a member of the Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA). He has attended many of their conferences in efforts to extend his knowledge and expertise in treating the various anxiety conditions and to see what the latest research shows as efficacious.
In February, 2012, Dr. Barr was featured in an episode of The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan. The episode is entitled “Hounded by Fear” and was shown on Nat Geo Wild. This episode can still be viewed on YouTube.
“It is because we can speak in terms of a cure for panic for many folks that I continue to be excited about the CHAANGE Program and about treating anxiety,” Dr. Barr says. “This is one of the most rewarding things I do. I love walking with people as they work their way out of the fear of fearful feelings. I tell people that if what they feel is anything like what I felt in my panic, it is truly terrible and we must do everything we can to get them free.”
For those who are tired of battling with fear and feeling that their world is being made small because they are too afraid to go out and do things, please consider using the CHAANGE Program to become free. Dr. Barr works with adults, senior adults, children, and adolescents because panic and anxiety is no respecter of age or position. He has also very successfully used the Lifeskills Program for children.

If you are within reach of Dr. Barr, do call him for excellent service. If not, call us at CHAANGE/LifeSkills for the Affilliate nearest you. (619) 795-8477




What is CHAANGE?

CHAANGE© is a well designed program based on cognitive (thought-based), behavioral, and goal-oriented theories. The program is divided into four phases.

Phase 1: Defines anxiety conditions, tells you how and why they likely developed for you, and describes what happens in your body when you experience them.

Phase 2: Teaches you how to relax your body to counteract the tension that anxiety produces. You will be given relaxation exercises which we encourage you to practice until they become automatic.

Phase 3 and 4: Teaches you thinking, attitude, belief and behavior skills that will change your current non-productive patterns and, in effect, turn your life around.Choking or Smothering Sensations.

CHAANGE© can be completed in your own home, with an affiliated therapist, through phone consultations with Dr. John Pullen, or any combination of the above. The program allows you the control of how and when you complete the program, however it is essential that you follow the program to obtain the best results.

With CHAANGE, we are your partner as you move from fear to freedom.
