“We don’t always see ourselves as others see us. By developing our self-awareness, we can learn to cope with our life experiences, challenges, and circumstances by responding appropriately rather than reacting automatically and emotionally.”
Tony Bevacqua is an accomplished educator, social advocate, and lecturer. He provides personal and professional development services for individuals, teachers, administrators, business leaders, athletes, and entertainers.
Tony’s book, Rethinking, Excessive Habits & Addictive Behaviors was published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2015. He has also published numerous articles, including in the academic, peer-reviewed Journal of Humanistic Psychology.
What They’re Saying
“Feedback from the youth was amazing. We have tried drug talk groups several times and they have failed miserably. This one was a hit – you are amazing and we are so blessed.”
Community Involvement Coordinator, Covenant House Hollywood, CA
“Today, I feel like I’m actually living. Tony has helped me see myself more clearly. I strive for more. I do have my ups and downs, but I’ve come to realize I’m human, and having normal human experiences. I’m more confident, and can catch myself before the feelings shame or guilt set in. It has been the most self-empowering way to live, knowing I have choices.
It’s self-empowering to understand that my behaviors have been learned, and I’ve been shaped and formed by the ways in which I have habitually coped with my relationships and circumstances. It’s self-empowering to understand that I can’t control others, but I can be responsible for my own behavior. Life is about choice and responsibility. I’m learning as I go. Tony has done more for me in the past year, than all my previous rehab stays, therapists, group support, and self-help books since 2009 combined. ”
