Joe Bailey and Associates Blog Exploring Three Principles Psychology, Natural Resilience, Recovery and more.
Joe Bailey has been a pioneer in his profession, weaving together ideas and insights on psychology and spirituality. In his twenties, he became a trainer of counselors in family therapy and addictions and introduced ideas of primary prevention of addictions to the treatment profession. Over the next thirty-five years, Joe helped pioneer revolutionary new psychology, Three Principles Psychology, which focused on seeing and actualizing health rather than the current disease model.
