Exploring the Damnation Mentality: From Oblivious to Obvious!

February 18th, 2015Paul O. Radde, Ph.DFounder, The Thrival InstituteHost: Barry Erdman

About The Presentation

Each of us deals daily with mentalities, trajectories, and environmental factors that are pervasive, yet unrecognized stressors and energy drains. These are “under the radar” issues that impact personal, intimate and professional relationships right down to the implicit charge of specific words. This session introduces and explores the damnation mentality as a core dissembler. Surface critical and implicit concerns so that they can be worked with. Take away useful corrections for self-talk and for couples therapy. Explore and spot the language that may inflame a discussion or a denial.
