Break Method Practitioner CertificationRegular price $4,700.00
A POWERFUL TRAINING PROGRAM TO HELP YOU BUILD EFFICIENT CLIENT CONTAINERS WITH CLEAR DIRECTION & SUSTAINABLE RESULTS.
Break Method is an innovative systems approach to rapid emotional rewiring. We believe, if given the opportunity, the brain can and will deceive the client throughout the process of attempted healing. Emotional Repatterning with Break Method is built to bypass the brain’s inherent protective reflexes to uncover the pattern that operates beneath the surface - driving chaotic behavior and cycles on autopilot. Our approach is not soft, enabling or codependency-inducing. We train you to hold firm to the process, timeline and systematic assessments to get your client’s sustainable results that create a generational ripple in the world.
What Populations Does Break Method Serve?
Emotional Repatterning with Break Method can be utilized for individuals, couples, teen and family systems in one-on-one or group therapy settings. Break Method is currently taught at the leading residential therapeutic boarding school for teen girls in the United States and integrated into the literature of SIRA, Self-Injury Recovery Anonymous. Our programming has been taught and integrated in the criminal justice system, veterans support groups, Fortune 100 and 500 companies and online for people across the globe.
How is Break Method Different From Traditional Mental Health Approaches?
BREAK METHOD MARKET STANDARD
It’s your client’s life - on repeat.
They want to change. They’ve tried to change. But now your client may not believe it’s possible. Codependency and disinterest can ensue. The “see you next week” messaging can be an intense underlying trigger for many. When a client doesn’t understand the timeline, process and container for their goals - they often burn out, become distracted or let their protective mechanisms evade having to do the work. We see it all the time when we train therapists. Our approach teaches you to provide an intentional blend of education, support and therapy in a set sequence, with distinct and measurable goals and sustainable tools that will help YOU do your job.
We’ve all had clients who won’t do their work.
We’ve all had clients you’d rather say NO to because they can’t get out of their own way and observe their own chaos at work. Break Method will empower you to help clients get sustainable results within 16 weeks.
In this 30 hour CEU course, you will learn to:
- Identify relevant input / output relationships from early childhood
- Walk clients through a set sequence that serves as a failsafe to catch misreporting
- Help clients extract meaningful data that bypasses their own narrative-infused version
- Use the scientific method to arrive at hypotheses of an 8 part brain pattern, test this hypothesis to arrive at a conclusions for rewiring strategy
- Rewire emotional responses with a series of intentionally crafted logical questions targeted to pre-defined triggers.
We are here to shift the trajectory of your client relationships with:
✔️ Efficient Processes
✔️ Set Timeline & Client / Practitioner Expectations
✔️ Sustainable Results
✔️ Clear Goals & Role Differentiation
✔️ Business Building Support & Online Tools
