Babcock LDP sponsors an evening with the Emotional Logic Centre to hear an inspiring report of development of a genuinely new way to transform the national approach to preventing mental illness.
Deeply disturbing statistics from recent government reports suggest 1 in 8 young people age 5-16 are diagnosed with at least one mental disorder, and 30% of those who are referred wait over a year for therapies: 50% of people with a lifetime mental illness will experience symptoms by the age of 14.
What if we could help to prevent mental illness ever developing – wouldn’t that be amazing? Emotional Logic offers
an astounding breakthrough in the understanding and management of common emotional distress states that present confusingly with the symptoms of mental illness. Developed by a doctor, it challenges current medical thinking concerning the root cause of much that is diagnosed and treated as illness.
A Dorset GP says “I have been qualified for over 30 years, and Emotional Logic is the most significant advance in the field of mental health and wellbeing I have seen in my lifetime. I have seen lives transformed, and people moving from illness to insight after just one or two sessions.”
Learning Emotional Logic offers instead a ground-breaking, highly effective, preventative approach that is producing startling and statistically significant results. Emotional Logic’s lifelong learning programme can run in schools, workplaces and healthcare to strengthen people’s developing capacity at any age to know how they can harness their emotional energy into building more adaptive relationships during times of change or stress. Anxiety, and inner tension, depression or confusion reduce as a result.
As an example, two qualified former primary school Head Teachers lead the schools programme. The Emotional Logic Centre is working in partnership with Babcock LDP to deliver Emotional Logic training and support to schools in Devon. In addition, all 67 primary schools in Plymouth will receive Emotional Logic input following the repeated finding in Devon that young children can express their emotions verbally rather than behaviourally, and that in older children self-harming behaviour reduces rapidly while concentration on studies and socialisation improves on understanding unpleasant emotion more constructively. Schools interventions aim to influence the ‘whole school community’ of teachers, pastoral staff, children and parents, and we aim to train systemically to a level of self-sufficiency. Marjon University Faculty for Teacher Training includes Emotional Logic in postgraduate teacher CPD as a result of reports from schools, and will include it as an option in undergraduate training.
A study of 53 patients in primary healthcare with anxiety and depression measured by standard NHS questionnaires showed highly significant improvement on learning Emotional Logic while on waiting lists for therapy, with none showing significant deterioration. Follow up of these patients up to six years later showed that 30% had been able to share their skills to benefit other people.
Emotional Logic Vision : One day, people everywhere will feel empowered to harness their unpleasant emotions during times of change or hurt, and turn them to constructive, useful purposes.
Emotional Logic Mission : To train and support networks of skilled practitioners who enable individuals and families to learn practical life skills that help to turn the stress of unpleasant emotions into an ability to build adaptability and stronger relationships.
