What are we aiming for?

Develop personal qualities

Personal qualities such as self-awareness, stability, self-regulation, creativity, assertiveness, etc. are increasingly important at work, in relationships, as well as for our own navigating through life. We have to rely on ourselves more than ever, so our personal development is not a luxury but a necessity.

Be more in charge of your life

Knowledge is power and personal knowledge leads to personal empowerment. How you play the hand matters more than what cards you were dealt.

Live life skilfully

This can be satisfying in itself even if nothing else is gained.
As happiness, personal development is not just means to an end but end in itself.

FAQ

Are the materials here different from the 1st edition of the book Personal Synthesis?

The basic structure and some fundamentals remain the same, but the content of individual areas has been substantially changed. These changes are based on the experience of running Personal Syntheses classes and programmes with the wide range of participants (secondary school pupils, university students, refugees, young offenders, as well as the general public). The materials are also made more accessible and user friendly.

If I have a specific issue where do I look?

The best starting point (particularly if you are not familiar with the materials) is the index. Go through the list and click on what grabs your attention. This will take you to one of the areas. While there, you may get an idea where else to go if you need too. Just follow your intuition.

Is there any free material?

Yes. We have provided you with couple of chapters that are free so you can peak in the material and see what it looks like.

Why call it DIY psychology manual?

We really need DIY psychology as we have to rely on ourselves more then ever, while the professional assistance is fairly limited and the formal education is still dragging its feet in this respect. 'Manual' is also a fitting term: the materials are written in a ‘no frills’ way. Each area is presented in a simple and concise way. This should enable you to easily remember and apply its content, as well as quickly find material on any specific issue when you need it.

Is it necessary to have a prior knowledge in psychology to engage with the materials?

No. The whole point of Personal Synthesis is to make what have generations of psychologists and other scholars discovered, accessible to everybody.

What do you get for one-off fee payment?

For a price of a cup of coffee (£3) you can get unlimited access to one of the four categories of your choice. If you purchase the access to the whole Personal Synthesis (all four categories) further bonus materials are available: recommended reading and films for each area in that category, the exercise toolbox and the final overarching area that is outside the map. All payments are considered as one-off lifetime access payments.

What does our community say?

One of the most educating, comprehensive books I’ve ever came across, I use what I’ve learnt in every session I do about emotional intelligence and leadership. Utterly grateful for the information presented.

I have subscribed to the website & found it very useful, easy to navigate & the subjects are well written to understand for the regular person – thank you for this super on line resources.

I’ve just paid for and downloaded the personal synthesis guide as it looks like a nice and simple to use reminder of the Positive Psychology interventions and thankfully well referenced! As a newly qualified social worker I sadly don’t have time to sift through my books and journals, but this will allow me to augment learning that can be used in my social work with children and families. With v little time to plan interventions, this is a great bite sized guide that has already helped me plan change interventions for use with ‘stuck’ parents nice and quickly! I also create visuals from the interventions that help people and children process the activity more easily.
