No. These workshops are not a treatment for any physical or mental health condition. They are educational offerings for personal growth, and not a replacement for professional care.
While it is possible that some participants may get in touch with “negative” thoughts and feelings during the workshops, the focus of the workshop material is on having and internalizing beneficial experiences, which are typically enjoyable.
It is presumed that participants can manage their own reactions during the workshop(s) without needing personal attention from the teacher.
Yes. One of the advantages of coming in person is experiencing Rick’s teachings and presence, plus the opportunity to speak directly with Rick if you like during the breaks. Rick will also respond to individual questions during sessions. And there is of course the chance to interact and connect face-to-face with others.
There is certainly some overlap, especially conceptually. This said, the 18-hour Positive Neuroplasticity Training distills Rick’s material down to the essence of self-directed brain change in an
intensive, experiential, and comprehensive deep dive – which participants will apply to their own issues and opportunities.
If you want to get good at taking in the good – and growing the good for yourself and others – then the Positive Neuroplasticity Training is the most powerful, best way we know to do this.
Yes. You will receive a hard copy of the Participant Handbook on the first day of the workshop. The Handbook includes the PowerPoint slides that Rick uses, a summary of each of the six sections in the Positive Neuroplasticity Training, background information about the brain and practical psychology, checklists you can use for six weeks of taking in the good, tips for dealing with blocks, and much more.
The workshops are not audio/video recorded and recordings will therefore not be available after the event.
The Positive Neuroplasticity Training is the necessary prerequisite for the Professional Course (PC), since the PC is all about using the specific concepts, methods, and practices learned in the
Positive Neuroplasticity Training in occupational settings.
If you have already taken the Positive Neuroplasticity Training (or its precursor, the Taking in the Good course), you have fulfilled this prerequisite. If this applies to you, please contact us with the details of where you completed the course to complete your registration.
While the Foundations program, in its 4-hour Learning pillar, does cover the basics of positive neuroplasticity, the 18-hour Positive Neuroplasticity Training is the intensive, comprehensive,
experiential exploration of the fundamental methods of self-directed brain change, systematically applied to building inner resources to meet our three core needs for safety, satisfaction, and
The Professional Course (PC) is closely linked to the Positive Neuroplasticity Training and requires the in-depth knowledge acquired within it. Consequently, the Positive Neuroplasticity Training is the prerequisite for the Professional Course – and having already taken the Foundations of Well-Being will only deepen the experience.
Yes! You will be able to make use of some of the materials such as slides or handouts to lead groups, give workshops, or coach individual clients.
We do offer a limited number of scholarships for the Positive Neuroplasticity Training. For those who cannot afford the full workshop fee, please contact the organisers directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
