LTH can lay a basis to create a new culture in Patient Care
Life Transforming Habits (LTH) has helped me to clarify and reinforce my core values and life vision to such an extent that I have more resilience, joy, calmness and purpose in pursing my goals each day. But LTH did not end with Core Values and Life Vision clarity; that was just the beginning. LTh extends into every corner of my life and empowers me to live life evermore fully through its various skill sets that powerfully equip me in my responses to others, to building my relationships with them, God and myself. I am experiencing my own transformation while working on this program. This has led me to conclude that the LTH knowledge base lays a solid foundation for a radically richer daily life and a clearer vision of the purpose(s) of your whole life.
Moreover, I have searched diligently over the past decade for the best programs to equip and enrich the lives of the Parish Nurse. I have found nothing similar in extent, depth or effectiveness to LTH and that is why I selected LTH for the Parish Nurses to learn and assimilate personally and professionally. And I believe with the tools LTH affords us, we can create a new, more peaceful and vibrant Parish Nursing culture among ourselves, within our families and in our patient and client care and which will extend into our parishes and hospitals.

LTH is a long term solution, not a band-aid on the problem.
Women and men who enter the nursing profession do so at risk to their own health and happiness. Since it does not seem likely that hospitals and the medical profession associations will address this in any meaningful way in the next few years, it is important that nurses are able to, at the very least, be trained to manage their own mental and physical health and reactions. The solution is providing the parish nurse and their support personnel with a vital component, the Life Transforming Habits program by Dr. Edward Santana-Grace, PhD. It is not the only component but it must be the first as it is a long term solution, not a band-aid on the problem. It equips the individual parish nurse today to not only cope with daily job stressors but also to use the skills they learn in their personal lives."

LTH has reinvigorated my calling as a physician.
Life Transforming Habits has reinvigorated my calling as a physician by reminding me about the importance of giving hope to my patients and how to structure their problems so that they don't get overwhelmed. Furthermore, it has helped me professionally with managing anxiety and tough problems that inevitably arise in caring for those with challenging medical illnesses. Personally, LTH has changed all fatalistic, hopeless thinking into life-giving thinking more in line with my life's goals and purpose. It has helped me recognize the physiological effects of negative thinking and allowed me to effectively combat such thoughts with a concrete plan of action. [Edward I.

This program should be taught in all schools.
This program is medically impeccable and I have experienced its effectiveness for myself. I have also seen that it can teach children, even just ten years of age, how to regulate their frustration and anger, and transform their anxiety (stress) into its useful purposes. The Santana-Grace program is amazing! Kids and teens become so aware of their own emotions and that of others that they change behavior with less external constraints. Given today’s world, this program should be taught in all schools and to all persons, parents, teachers, administrators and not just the students. [Dr. Georgine Sibbering, MD, Strausberg, PA, 2005]
LTH should be taught in all medical schools
as it has so much to do with one's health.
The easiest way to describe this training is my before and after training. Before, work was a constant place of stress and frustration even though it is my chosen profession. After, it is a joy to go to work; I manage frustrations immediately. I am basically stress free, yet have plenty of energy. I know it is the training and it is grounded, but it seems like magic given the before. This should be taught in all medical schools as it has so much to do with one's health.

Children can and should be their own authors of
behavioral modification and improvement
Dr. Benjamin Spock imparted the lesson that children should be cherished and nurtured. Dr. Haim Ginott's body of work permitted us to treat our children emotionally when appropriate. Now Dr. Edward Santana-Grace teaches us that our children can and should be their own authors of behavioral modification and improvement. Santana-Grace's novel technique allows individuals to examine their emotions and their coincident behavior more objectively, to consider the impact their behavior has on others and, in turn, to learn how the reactions of others come back to oneself. This understanding of the complete circle of actions and reactions is a new way of thinking for many individuals and can be understood by boys and girls, men and women, of all ages and all walks of life.
