The MAP WORKBOOK, written by Clinical Psychologist, Skipi Lundquist Smoot, PhD has been designed to be used by Readers of Maturation: The Adult Paradigm for assessment of personal levels of Psychological Maturity vs. Immaturity.
At the core of Psychological Immaturity lies excessive dependency and fear of rejection. The goal of Adult immature behavior is reduction of anxiety. Higher levels of Adult Psychological Maturation occurs through an instructional “process” of Cause & Effect underling human behavior and communication. Dr. Smoot defines Psychological Maturity as a necessary but usually disregarded “Missing Link” for attainment of functional resolution of Anxiety.
Personal Growth and Mature relationships (Tasks of Maturation) can occur by adhering to a set of Universal Principles (Laws of Cause & effect) based on “Processes” underlying objective reality. Five Lessons Of Life (Control, Responsibility, Reality, Cognitive Decisions And Moderation) teach methods for making more successful realistic decisions.
The Map Workbook can also be used by mental health professionals as well as readers of Self-help literature. The 10 scales of The Map Workbook (taken from The Test of Ego & Cognitive Development) identify and classify areas of functional vs. dysfunction emotional blockage and illogical thought.
