Why are normal human reactions — such as fear, shame, self-criticism and the need for love and belonging — labeled as “mental disorders?”
Could compassionate self-acceptance be the solution to commonplace self-doubt — and even help people find permanent solutions to anxiety, depression and other supposed “mental disorders?”
I am excited to announce the start of my newest project, based on “Pack Leader Psychology,” but taking those ideas to an entirely new level. Self-Acceptance Psychology is starting as a 55-page booklet for clinicians and website, but I hope to grow it into much more.
That’s because I am so passionate about challenging the mental health profession’s inaccurate, unscientific myths. The current disease model falsely asserts that “anxiety,” “depression” and “ADHD” are caused by imbalances in brain chemistry or inherited traits. Harmful drugs are then pushed as the only solution to these allegedly “lifelong” conditions.
What if there was a system for understanding human emotions and behaviors that….
… was more accurate than the current psychiatric diagnostic model?
… could bring about a real understanding of the causes of human behavior?
… could improve the quality of your relationships with others?
… could improve the relationship you have with yourself?
… could lead to real, permanent change without the use of drugs — bringing contentment and an improved sense of connection?
At the risk of sounding boastful, I believe that system is Self-Acceptance Psychology.
