The Integrated Wellness Model, or the IW Model for short, is a cutting edge therapy system designed to benefit everyone. Whether you are using the model as a self help application to heal yourself, or if you're a therapist, counselor or coach, wishing to expand and build on your existing skill sets, this course is for you.
The IW Model was developed by Libby Seery and Patrick Howell and is built on a framework of principles, that when applied correctly, will facilitate positive, profound change, enabling us to flourish as individuals and experience a state of self actualization.
The Integrative wellness model pulls mainly from these six specific modalities;
1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy - The work begun by Dr. Aaron Beck in the 1960's, where short-term, goal-oriented therapy is used to change patterns of thinking and behavior.
2. Positive Psychology, which is the science of Human Flourishing, also referred to as "The Science of Happiness"
3. Therapeutic Art, or using the creation of art as a way to deal effectively with the struggles of day-to-day living, as well as for general personal development
4. NLP, or Neuro-linguistic programming, which is associated with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and REBT, and is a method of influencing the brain's reaction to stimulus through the use of language and modeling
5. R.E.B.T, or Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, a form of Cognitive behavioral Therapy, that teaches how to examine and challenge unhelpful thinking, and self-sabotaging behaviors.
6. Life Coaching - The practice of providing supportive guidance to clients, with the focus on goals, the realization of dreams and aspirations and overcoming life's challenges.
This most wonderful and modern of therapies, teaches us that it’s not events, or things that upset and disturb us, but rather how we view these events, or things. In essence, how a person thinks, influences their feelings.
When a person believes illogical and irrational beliefs about themselves, others, and the world, psychological problems and mental distress will often be the result.
We have created this course, in such a way that everybody can benefit from this amazing therapy approach. No special knowledge of psychology or therapy is needed, as this introduction course has been written for beginners but will be useful and informative for professionals too.
An open mind and a willingness to rethink the way in which you view yourself, others and the world is all that is required for you to gain maximum benefit form the IW Model.
The IW Model is effective for a range of emotional issues as well as personal development and overall well-being.
As you can see, the IW Model is a versatile approach, helping people with a wide range of psychological and life issues.
Included in the course, you’ll find a number of outstanding resources to help you apply the principles of the IW Model easily and effectively.
As with all of our courses, you’ll be able to benefit from full support from both Patrick and I, 7 days a week. We will always get back to our students the very same day, and more often than not, within a couple of hours (depending on your time zone!)
