Chronic anxiety and depression present significant challenges for those affected by these conditions. A behavioral treatment which accesses deep levels of mind-body functioning facilitates remission of these debilitating conditions. This treatment, conceptualized as essential neurobiological communication (ENBC), incorporates a form of body language known as ideomotor signaling. Because these are chronic conditions, the affected individual learns how to fully manage these states on their own. Also presented is a non-invasive, structured protocol for reducing the adverse influence of unresolved emotion on present experience. Essential to this model is a progressive ratification sequence intended to ground emotional adjustments in thought, perception and behavior. This brief procedure is a useful adjunct to other treatment modalities and instrumental in clarifying the focus of treatment. Given adequate time, a demonstration with a volunteer will illustrate this approach.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the use of ideomotor questioning in resolving emotional experience.
  2. Describe a method for accessing and quelling the source of chronic anxiety and depression.
  3. Identify one clinical application of a parts model.
