The Seminar

This instructional seminar has been developed to introduce professionals in the areas of mental health and medicine to a treatment approach and therapeutic method of working with patients blending cognitive behavioral and family system theories.

The seminar presents the five therapeutic Questions of Identity, the theoretical background and the research of self-esteem and spirituality from which the five questions were developed. Instruction concerning the direct application of this theory to a professional practice setting will be offered.

The Objectives

1.      Learn the five questions of identity and ways to apply this methodology to their professional practice.

2.      Be able to define the fundamental concepts of spirituality and self-esteem as presented in this seminar.

3.      Learn new treatment options for use with their patients.
