A complete, optimized and effective set of tools for emotions.
Learn to work on emotions through:
Discover the role of sensory organs and body maps in triggering an emotion.
Nervous system, thoughts, memory, innate reflexes, environmental factors, relational dynamics, body and biochemical factors, etc.
Every technique can be more effective under particular conditions and every passage may be the basis for the following one
You will learn tools and techniques to work on every aspect of emotional diseases: anxiety, stress, trauma, attachment, phobia, etc.
In this first section you can find an overview of the Protocol, meet Fabio Sinibaldi and Sara Achilli, the founders of this method, and, discover some interesting facts about Neuroscience, Evolutionism andEthology at the basis of this approach.
In this section the focus is on very relevant issues and some important misunderstandings about anger, pleasure, reward, the role of the body, methods of activation, movements, etc.
This step is about understanding and regaining physiology at the basis of the emotion processes and functioning.
You will learn:
The second step of the protocol is dedicated to normalizing the emotional responses developingawareness, interrupting automatic behaviour and restoring physiology through the food we eat.
You will learn:
Step 3 aims to deeply understand the specific functioning of our emotional responses.
The goal is to trigger change using processes at the basis of emotions and breaking up dysfunctional mechanisms that are no longer physiological.
For that we have developed a very powerful tool called the Map of Transformational Analysis. It is a practical application of a wider set of instruments called Ideographic Thinking. This uses the power of visual representations to avoid cognitive bias and to favour open problem-solving.
It also represents a good way to interact between you and your client, in a constructive approachand in a context and mindset where change is easy to accept.
In this module there are also some useful strategies to help people deal with boundaries among their and other’s emotions.
The fourth phase of the protocol is about the body and its power to send signals to the nervous system.
We can use them to regulate the emotions and also for their social value.
You will learn:
Step 5 is very important because it acts not only on behaviour, but also on a very diffused cultural aspect.
The goal for this step is learning to face an emotion, an experience allowing us to become aware of the risks and the real consequences of a given situation, instead of focusing on those assumed by our mind. Facing an emotion allows us to develop awareness of our resources, because it puts us in the position to look for and use them. At a neurobiological level, that will activate the circuits of self-control and self-esteem, which are activated only on a body and experiential level, while language and logical thinking only play an indirect role in this.
You will learn two ways of facing: static and acted.
Every mammal can show from 7 to 12 variations of the same emotion. Men, in their complexity, should have all these levels, or even more.
The most important thing is to discover the entire range, because each level has specific activation factors and functional modalities for both our protection and good interpersonal management.
Learning to modulate is a crucial activity to restore physiology in emotional responses and, through that way, to achieve higher self-confidence and improvements on every task we have to face.
Step 7 focuses on behaviour. Not only implementing it, but also the possibility to be flexibly actedwith lots of potential and breaking the power of automatisms that are no longer effective and developed over time.
You will learn two interesting tools:
The last step of the Protocol is about facing the effects of traumatic memories (in this case we use the word “trauma” in a broader sense) which, although relating to a past event, may interfere with every emotion we experience today.
The Cold Repetition Pattern technique allows us to act on primary ancestral responses orbehaviours that follow a traumatic event.
In this step we use the word “trauma” in a broader sense: it is not necessarily about really bad or catastrophic events, but those which had a strong emotional impact, more than what we could bear. These could be single or repeated events.
Real Way of Life was founded by Fabio Sinibaldi and Sara Achilli with a clear mission: to link science to practical application.
Real Way of Life is an independent research and development institute that embraces modern sciences such as Neuroscience, PNEI (PsychoNeuroEndocrinoImmunology), Evolutionary Anthropology and Psychology to identify mechanisms and processes for both physical and mental health which can make the difference in the efficacy of a therapy or in a successful consultation.
Our goal is to identify these mechanisms and find strategies and techniques that could be implemented by professionals in their daily practice.
Expert in Neurosciences and Psycho-Neuro-Endocrino-Immunology, Fabio combines these sciences with an evolutionary and ethological vision of mankind. Works as both a researcher and a trainer.
He is the originator of the 8-step protocol for emotions and several other techniques.
Lecturer at post graduate schools of psychotherapy, holds seminars for UK, Italian and foreign universities; regularly attends national and international congresses as a speaker.
Expert in Nutrition and well-being, Sara directly tests the way nutrition can influence change on a nervous, cerebral, genetic and immune level.
She also works with Interpersonal Neurobiology and Scientific Parenting.
She is the creator of Natural Parenting. In Real Way of Life, Sara coordinates programs and makes an annual report for the most important international events.
