Seminars, Practicums, Workshops, Lectures
ReChanneling is dedicated to researching methods to alleviate symptoms of psychological dysfunctions (neuroses) and discomfort that impact your emotional wellbeing and quality of life. It does this by targeting the personality through empathy, collaboration, and program integration. ReChanneling is a system of common-sense solutions, evident in their simplicity. It is a paradigmatic approach to historically or clinically practical approaches. ReChanneling is designed to drastically improve your emotional wellbeing and quality of life by substantially alleviating symptoms through a targeted integration of techniques.
Psychological dysfunctions and discomforts can result in functional impairment, which interferes with or limits one or more major life activities. Each impacts your emotional wellbeing and quality of life, and each is correctible through the same basic processes. The primary distinction between a psychological dysfunction and discomfort is severity. A psychological dysfunction is defined as a mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder of sufficient duration to meet diagnosable criteria. ReChanneling advocates and supports the Wellness Model over the etiology-driven disease or medical model of mental healthcare.
Mullen holds seminars and practicums on ReChanneling, Strategizing Your Psychological Dysfunction, Memory Retrieval and Emotional Recall, and workshops focused on specific mental dysfunctions. COVID19 has restricted these activities; they will resume sometime in 2021. In the interim, research and writing have assumed precedence. We continue to be actively involved in discussion and support groups (currently online). The general group Strategizing Your Psychological Dysfunction is active through our two websites and promoted via social media. The LGBTQ Social Anxiety Group is a Meetup organization started by Dr. Mullen, now in its fifth year with over 500 members.
Individual Life Support
There are five steps to an effective platform of recovery:
1. Blueprinting a program that targets the subject’s personality.
2. Implementing the program’s techniques and mechanisms (core work).
3. Restructuring the neural network augmented by repetitious positive affirmations.
4. Exposure in the community to supplement the learned tools and techniques.
5. Continuing the process for at least one year to achieve recovery-remission.
The subject’s need for facilitator support will exponentially diminish, but it will remain available throughout the process (and beyond, if warranted).
Addressing the complexity of the individual personality demands integrating multiple traditional and non-traditional approaches, developed through client trust, cultural assimilation, and therapeutic innovation. Any recovery program must the subject’s environment, hermeneutics, history, and autobiography in conjunction with her or his wants, needs, and aspirations. Absent that, their complexity is not valued, and the treatment inadequate. A working platform showing encouraging results for most disorders integrates positive psychology’s optimum human functioning with CBT’s behavior modification, neuroscience’s network restructuring, and other targeted approaches.
COVID19 makes it impossible to implement the total program. The preferred method of one-on-one support is also curtailed and must be facilitated online. That should not discourage recovery efforts. The development of the program, core-learning, and neural network restructuring will prepare for the exposure phase post COVID19.
