Modern Psychoanalysis investigates, identifies and resolves mental and emotional resistances to change.
It differs from the ubiquitous common approaches to helping others by avoiding the inescapable self-consciousness created by the process of setting goals and standards and then attempting to enforce them. These techniques tend to make clients feel guilty or “wrong” if (or when) they hit the inevitable snags in the process. They rely on the desire to please and to be a “good” student with a strong work ethic to achieve any sort of progress.
By contrast, Modern Psychoanalysis is a systematic exploration of the client’s resistances to improvement and success. This exploration is conducted through the use of? “object-oriented questions? or questions that use the word YOU. Investigating this way protects the client’s self-esteem. Object-oriented questions painlessly allow a client to ferret out the issues underlying any repetitive failure, or block to peak performance.
Further, this Socratic analytic method provides a safe environment for the experience and understanding of the many emotions that are so much a part of every human endeavor. Feelings, which in other types of learning and problem-solving can be difficult and at times impossible to tolerate and understand, are now recognized as an invaluable aspect of the rich tapestry of human experience and indispensible in the pursuit of realizing ones own potential; an integral aspect of everything we do, and all decisions we make.
Modern analytic exploration is exciting, creative, in itself a source of motivation to better oneself, and adds an element of wonderment to the process of understanding ourselves for the purpose of greater achievements and furthering success.
