Video clip from last night's Q & A: Daniel Goleman, Harvard Professor of 'Vital Lies, Simple Truths' wrote about how the lies we tell ourself are holding us back: But actually it was Socrates who first taught about how we are constantly lying to ourself, and taught CRITICAL THINKING; This is the Socratic Method; Asking critical questions to ourself and others to determine the OBJECTIVE TRUTH...This was also the beginning of the 'Scientific Method', and is why ancient Greece is the origin of Western Civilization. The Greek de-mystified thinking, leading to a clarity through rationality.
Modern psychology, especially CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) is rooted in the Socratic Method of "Critical Self-Inquiry". The ALKISTIS Method is an integration of Greek philosophy and modern neurocoaching & CBT.
CBT is a way of focusing on the cognitive processes that produce feelings. The approach helps by changing people’s behavior and attitudes with a deeper understanding of thoughts, images, beliefs, and attitudes. Attitudes grooved in neural pathways during childhood become automatic thoughts. The thoughts resulting in disruption in daily life are negative thoughts around situations that created them.
CBT allows patients to interrupt these thoughts with a deeper understanding of the errors or distortions in the perception of these automatic thoughts. This type of therapy helps patients to correct misinterpretations of the thoughts that have caused disruption in their daily lives.
