Addictions Conference 2016

Chris and I are heading to the Gold Coast in May for the Australian & New Zealand Addiction Conference 2016 to present new treatment options.

Addictions Conference 2016
Resource Therapy Institute presentation Addiction Conference 2016 Gold Coast, Australia.

Resource Therapy is the new approach to treating addiction that offers precision treatment for clients seeking to address behavioral addictions – gambling, internet addiction, pornography addiction, Obsessive compulsive disorder, drug abuse, rage and other unwanted behavior.

I have worked with many talented and intelligent clients in my years as a psychologist. Many have had great insight and knowledge into their addictive behaviour and yet still have relapsed in times of emotional stress.  Leaving them disappointed and downhearted by this lack of change.

We need to tackle behavioral and process type addictions with innovation.

Resource Therapy addresses the core issues and find an alternative state to accomplish more appropriate means of dealing with stress.

RT targets the personality part needing a trauma informed approach using the Resource Therapy Actions 1-7 to process and resolve the underlying issues. This brings a state holding extreme anxiety or fear back to normality, restoring the state to health.

The next step is to get the pathological personality part acting out in the unwanted behavior ( a Retro State in Resource Therapy terms) and negotiate directly with it. In the Retro State negotiation we suggest an alternative or smaller role for the Retro State that will be preferred by resource states and liked.

Resource Therapy Action 8 Find a Resource is often used if a more appropriately skilled resource is needed.

We are very pleased to be offered this opportunity to introduce Resource Therapy and it’s effective treatment actions in May.
