Learn the basics of Organic Intelligence® as applied to counseling and therapeutic work, including the 3-Phase model, working with thresholds, and understanding the physiological nature of trauma and dysregulation. It demonstrates how this training can profoundly impact you both professionally and personally. This workshop introduces the material that will be taught in the 3-year HEARTraining®, a premier trauma resolution and resilience-building body of work in the counseling and social change fields today. Professions that would benefit from Organic Intelligence include psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage & family therapists, counselors, bodyworkers, energy healers, art therapists, movement therapists, coaches, trainers and educators, clergy, mindfulness coaches, spiritual teachers, and others.

- Identify the 3 Phases in the OI 3-Phase Model map
- Describe one intervention most likely to support a client’s system shift into Coherence
- Describe Threshold
- Describe a clinically relevant value of orientation to simple human pleasure
- Identify 2 differences between Phase 2 and Phase 3 in the OI Clinical Protocol
- Describe the value of the Free Association Conversation vs directive interventions
- Describe the difference between positive and negative reinforcement.
Schedule & Topics
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
- Overview of Organic Intelligence.
- Introduction to Chaos Theory’s notion of strange attractor — the addiction to that which disorders us — OI’s “what’s wrong attention” — the “negativity bias”. This creates imbalance, which in the end is biological desynchrony.
- The OI Clinical Protocol is introduced as the developmental process by which the biology’s inherent self-organizing signals can be effectively reflected, and efficiently received by the client.
- OI calls the signals of disorganization “Red” and the signals for self-organization “Blue.”
- The Three Pillars of the HEARTraining include 1) Mindfulness, 2) Compassion Practice and 3) the OI Clinical Protocol.
- OI’s Orientation and the value of human pleasure.
2:30 – 5:30 pm
- Phase 1, 2 & 3 descriptions of the OI Clinical Protocol — “chaos” as a system quality and its meaning and application in the clinical setting; Phase 1 means a drastic limitation on information processing. This is contrasted with the subjective feeling of chaos at each threshold of growth.
- The Free Association conversation is introduced as a valuable clinical tool.
- Positive reinforcement in a shaping paradigm is discussed, as well as the development of the client’s agency in the Phase 2 work of ego-strengthening.
- Brief overview of the HEARTraining and the value of the training towards improving clinical outcomes.
