Well, what now?
What is true now?
Is man a free spirit or a biochemical system? Only one can be true!
What’s exciting is that both are true, and a whole lot of other truths too.
As a young psychologist in the early 1970s, I got hold of a book on behaviour therapy, and I think it was by Hans Jürgen Eysenck, which made a deep impression on me. After that, I was convinced for some time that I had found something fundamental in it and simply the truth about us humans.
Now, many decades later, I know that learning theory has done fundamental research on a particular aspect of our humanity, which still has a beneficial effect in modern behavioural therapy. Only it is only one aspect of our humanity among many others equally important.
From cell biology to philosophy, the possible paths of access to crucial aspects of our humanity range. Each of these paths has a coherent theoretical structure from which valuable ideas for action in our lives can be derived.
Each of these access paths is no more and no less than just one possible access path among many others that also need to be considered if I want to gain a comprehensive picture of people.
When I work in the helping professions, it is indispensable for me to have as many of these different approaches in view at the same time as possible to be able to really do justice to my client, who is looking for my support.
We humans are particularly good at focusing our attention on what is „important“. Unfortunately, we then „overlook“ other, equally important things. In 1999, the famous experiment „The Invisible Gorilla“ was conducted for the first time at Harvard. It is worthwhile to keep reminding yourself of it! (Youtube!)
In our project L-I-A-M, we will show how you can learn to see in many dimensions and train your intuition.
The prerequisite for both is intuition and a strong love for people and everything that moves them. You can put me to the test!
