This workshop will present a comprehensive psycho-social theory concerning human behavior that integrates a large number of major psychological and sociological theories. The main postulates underlying this theory revolve around the concepts of routinization of information in the CNS, the automatic nature of human behavior, the unanticipated social consequences of automatic behavior, the requirement of social accuracy for an organism to thrive, and the drive for maturation through social interaction that all humans share. The theory hypothesizes that we are automatic in our behavior and consequently are generally limited in growth options and development by past conditioning that directs that automatic behavior. Through self-awareness training we can become aware of our automatic responses and develop a conscious plan and method to alter it. If our alterations increase our social accuracy, then we can acquire the social resources we need to thrive. Once we thrive we begin to develop in social maturity through insights emerging from efficient interactions toward our perceived goals. This transformative process leads toward transcendence. Attendees will be provided with means to objectively measures dimensions of behavior and transform them through methods of self-awareness training (Neurofeedback), emotional intelligence training, visualization training, concentration training, and deep states training.
