What are the Life Effectiveness Guides?
Life can be challenging at times. How you deal with these challenges has an enormous impact on your happiness and wellbeing.

Relationship, family, emotional and financial circumstances all influence your level of stress and your ability to cope with situations in your life. Thus, your wellbeing and ability to enjoy life can be dramatically affected.

  • Have you ever felt overwhelmed by problems you are facing in your life?
  • Do you feel like you are not handling some situations as effectively as possible?
  • Are you confronted with circumstances that just seem too big to cope with?
Rest assured, EVERYONE experiences these challenges in their lives! It can leave you feeling powerless and overwhelmed. Your ability to cope with these challenging situations directly determines your level of wellbeing. AND YET, as you progress through life, you rarely have the opportunity to obtain the resources required to effectively and appropriately deal with these circumstances.

AIPC?s Life Effectiveness Guides provide you with information, strategies and skills to cope and deal effectively with complicated situations you face in your life.

Whether you:

  • Are confronted with problems in your marriage or personal relationships;
  • Have questions about parenting and caring for your children; or
  • Are finding it difficult to handle a complex situation in your life.

AIPC has a Life Effectiveness Guide that will help you understand why you are feeling the way you are and the options available to you to cope with it.

Developed by AIPC?s highly-qualified team of psychologists, counsellors and education professionals, each Life Effectiveness Guide provides you with:

  • A thorough understanding of the situation you are facing and the emotions you are experiencing;
  • Information about what other people involved in the situation may be experiencing and feeling; and
  • Specific strategies that you can adopt to help you cope with the situation.
The Guides are presented in an easy-to-understand format with diagrams, case scenarios and personal exercises that help you understand your feelings and comprehend what you can do to cope with the situation.

At approximately 30-50 pages in length (depending on the topic covered), each Guide contains the SPECIFIC information and answers you need to deal with your particular circumstances. It?s a great resource ? and you?ll receive it FREE!
