Personal Growth and Development
Personal development is also known as self-development or personal growth. It involves the growth and enhancement of all aspects of the person, the feelings the person has about himself or herself, and their effectiveness in living. It includes the development of positive life skills and the development of a realistic and healthy self-esteem.
Understanding Personal Growth and Development
Personal development involves mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth that allows a person to live a productive and satisfying life within
the customs and regulations of their society. This is achieved through the development of life skills.
These life skills, skills necessary for successfully living a productive and satisfying life, generally fall into one of several categories: feeling about self, intimacy, family, friends, community, job, leisure, and spirituality. They include being able to recognize and describe one's feelings, giving and receiving feedback, recognizing assumptions, setting realistic and attainable goals, and employing problem-solving strategies.
Increased personal growth and development is the goal of a wide range of men and women. It includes those who suffer from problems in their relationship with others, or who suffer emotionally with feeling of low self-esteem, anxiety, or depression. It also includes individuals who are marginally successful or even very successful in life, but who want to improve their efficiency, their ability to be and feel intimate and relate to others, , and/or their general level of satisfaction with, and enjoyment of, living.

a much longer and more intense type of therapy. The approach to help must be individually assessed and applied on a personal basis. It may include a variety of interventions, ideas skills, and behavioral
In personal and emotional growth, the "fit" between the therapist, counselor, or coach and yourself is critical. This "fit" is best assessed not by reviewing the professional's credentials,
but by your ability to relate to them.
