The Integrative Wellness Model, or the IW Model, is a cutting edge therapy system designed to benefit everyone.  Whether you are using the model as a self help application to heal yourself, or if you’re a therapist, counselor or coach, wishing to expand and build on your existing skill sets, this course is for you.

The IW Model is built on a framework of mental health principles, that when applied correctly, will facilitate positive, profound change, enabling you to flourish as an individual and experience a state of self actualization.

The Integrative wellness model incorporates six specific modalities;

  1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – work begun by Dr. Aaron Beck in the 1960’s, where short-term, goal-oriented therapy is used to change patterns of thinking and behavior.

  2. Positive Psychology –  the science of Human Flourishing, also referred to as “The Science of Happiness”

  3. Arts Therapy – using the creation of art as a way to deal effectively with the struggles of day-to-day living, as well as for general personal development

  4. NLP – a method of influencing the brain’s reaction to stimulus through the use of language and modeling

  5. R.E.B.T, or Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy – a form of Cognitive behavioral Therapy, that teaches how to examine and challenge unhelpful thinking, and self-sabotaging behaviors.

  6. Life Coaching – the practice of providing supportive guidance to clients, with the focus on goals, the realization of dreams and aspirations and overcoming life’s challenges.

This most wonderful and modern of therapies, teaches us that it’s not events, or things that upset and disturb us, but rather how we view these events, or things.  In essence, how a person thinks, influences their feelings.

When a person believes illogical and irrational beliefs about themselves, others, and the world, psychological problems and mental distress will often be the result.

We have created this course, in such a way that everybody can benefit from this amazing therapy approach.  No special knowledge of psychology or therapy is needed, as this introduction course has been written for beginners but will be useful and informative for professionals too.

An open mind and a willingness to rethink the way in which you view yourself, others and the world is all that is required for you to gain maximum benefit form the IW Model.

The IW Model is effective for a range of emotional issues as well as personal development and overall well-being.

These include:

  • Development of happiness

  • Personal growth, life goal issues, performance at work issues

  • Realizing your true potential

  • Decreasing depressive symptoms

  • Various forms of anxiety, especially social anxiety

  • PTSD

  • Problems related to emotional control

  • Anger management

  • Pain management

  • Stress management

  • Coping with health or disability problems

  • Child behavioral issues

  • Issues specific to couples

As you can see, the IW Model is a versatile approach, helping people with a wide range of psychological and life issues.
