Stage Climbing 
In Stage Climbing Dr. Broder guides the reader with compassion and understanding through a new and innovative process to life at its highest potential. Although his model integrates established psychological theories, his approach leads readers to greater insights into their own individual thoughts, behavior patterns, and life situations at the deepest levels. This journey is a challenging and rewarding adventure in self-discovery, understanding, empowerment, self-healing and subsequently positive change, opening up a new way to find meaning and fulfillment in all area of one's life.

At first, the concepts and process seemed somewhat overwhelming, but as I read through Dr. Broder's preliminary Quick Start Guide, I relaxed into a fascinating understanding of the tools he uses in his approach to help readers discover their own inner resources as he skillfully guides them through the change process--to move from an "I should be" attitude to an "I am" realization. The Quick Start Guide supplies a glossary of terms, basics of the 7 life stages, a short stage climbing drill, instructions for Parts I and II, and a section regarding living life at the target stages, or where one's life is at the highest potential and most authentic. Just this preliminary reading brought my own life into deeper focus with motivation to go on and understand where I am now and where I want to go from here.

Dr. Broder's approach is presented in a clear, concise manner in which you are led step-by-step through your healing and change process. This process will sort out questions you may have about your life, and as you gain personal insight and understanding, you will see different areas of your life in a new perspective. You will learn strategies for moving forward to whatever life changes you choose to pursue, given your own story and individual needs. With Dr. Broder's guidance and your participation, this book could change your life.
