The Modules

Key Topics in each Module for Workshop 3


Module 1 & 2

Do external events MAKE us feel a certain way? You will see real-life examples from the founders of psychology that display that interpretations, and not events, determine our feelings. This means that no matter what happens to us, if we have the right tools, we can choose how we will feel about an event.

The ABCDE Model is explained which is at the core of cognitive-behavioral therapy taught by Dr. Albert Ellis.

How are our interpretations and underlying beliefs formed? Professor Daniel Kahneman differentiates between System 1 & 2 thinking. This is at the core of behavioral economics and also the first step to true self-awareness. You will learn which System of thinking is talking in your mind with your different types of thoughts.

Why is it that the same event can lead to a different level of feelings for different people? Some people will react to a disappointing event by being concerned and yet motivated to make a change. Other people will react to the same event by being anxious or depressed.

Introducing ‘Psychological Self-Structure’ and how gaps in this structure are responsible for all our feelings and their intensity

Have you ever felt anxious about your anxiety or depressed about being depressed? These are called secondary emotional disturbances. What is the source of secondary feelings and how can we break this cycle.

Dr. Albert Ellis brilliantly condensed all irrational general demanding beliefs into just 3 irrational core demanding beliefs. He confirmed that at least one of these 3 irrational beliefs is present underlying EVERY emotional disturbance.

The scientific and logical method for reducing intense and debilitating feelings to just uncomfortable feelings.

Module 3 & 4

How long does a feeling, urge or craving last? We will explore the American neuroanatomist, Jill Bolte Taylor Ph.D. and Pema Chodron’s perspective. We will explain why it seems a feeling can be prolonged.

Understanding why a feeling is always valid although it is sometimes generated by an invalid thought. In order to answer this, you must understand the difference between your ‘thinking’ self and your ‘experiencing’ self.

There is often a conflict between an actual experience and the thoughts about the experience. For example, would you choose the same vacation if you were told that you had to take a drug at the end of the vacation, and you would forget it all?

How was your “I” self-concept created according to Dr. Alfred Adler?

The Philosophical and Psychological reasons why you cannot rate personhood according to Alfred Korzybski.
The Mindful reason why you cannot rate personhood. Is there even a separate me?
Understanding why the ego is born into existence. The positives and negatives of an ego.

Module 5 & 6

Why do we feel anxious about breaking habits? We think about all the ‘reasons’ why we SHOULD NOT continue the habit!
This seems logical because there are many negative outcomes due to this habit.
But when you create a ‘Should NOT’ thought to break a habit, you create RESISTANCE.

What creates the habit or addiction?
How do feelings and cravings play into bad habits and addictions? What exactly is a craving and how can we feel them without acting upon them?

Does this specific habit or situation provide actual enjoyment? A ‘stress release’ is not enjoyment. It is just a distraction from feeling your feelings.

Does this specific habit align with my goals and values?

You may need to practice new behaviors often or at least a few times and practice not giving in to urges before you get over fears or break habits. But why does it take multiple times?

The Behavior component – Social Anxiety example.

Help from Visualization

You will become aware of why the workflow of the mind is so important when addressing the power of habit.

Module 7 & 8

What is the difference between a value and a goal?

The SMART method for setting practical goals which will ensure you create defined and achievable goals.

Always start with validating feelings and then addressing the thinking patterns leading to the feelings.

We will introduce you to what we call System 3 thinking, which is different from your System 1 & 2 processes. System 3 thinking is your only constant experience. It was generated with your first breath in this world, and it will be the same with your last breath in this world.

When you have inner conflict, there is wasted energy and a battle of energy ensues in different directions. This is one of the main reasons why we fail to break bad habits.

The 4-4-6-2 breath exercise to deescalate urges and cravings.

The 7-Step TEBA Process of Self-Inquiry “FYI SAFE” is applied to break ANY bad habit forever. It takes about 3-5 minutes.
