How to Change Limiting Permission-Granting Beliefs of Addicts and Criminal Behavior Clients?

My new book, Belief Eye Movement Therapy is now available at Amazon as an eBook. You’ll find many new change and treatment concepts. It’s $6.99. One new idea could save a life.

It was written with the idea that anyone can help anyone. Change can occur in one treatment episode. That happened for me. You are welcome to be a contributor and add your story or expertise to this document. #amazon

The answers to your problems are in this book. After you read it, I can work with you on an individual basis.

Does Addiction Affect Your Work?

Addiction related problems caused by trauma and pain can wreak disaster on a brilliant legal career. They can follow you through life. End your career.

Trauma is different for everyone who experiences it. It could be sexual, verbal or physical trauma. How the event was perceived is the critical point.

Trauma is related to addiction and crime. They drive each other. It is the alcohol and other drug (AOD) and criminal thinking and conduct cycle (CTC) at work. The CBT map below shows the process.

Maybe it’s an addiction to power. Money. Sex.

All three can ruin anyone. Can this be used to defend a client?

It’s sad to see famed attorneys and politicians be charged with crimes, disbarred and imprisoned.

Don’t let that be you. Be on guard. Defend yourself.

If you see something, say something at work. With family or friends.

We need to focus on the pain of trauma while in treatment to understand it. Focus on the experience while you pray or meditate, if you do.

BEMT, Belief Eye Movement Therapy was designed to help people with these painful, traumatic, issues of life. Help anyone.

We have the same problems as our clients, parents and grandparents. The roots of the problems are similar. They are genetic, handed down.

BEMT can be the solution.

BEMT can be done by anyone for anyone.

Why is it important? Because there will be no long-term behavior changes unless your limiting, permission-granting, core beliefs about anything that is bothering you are changed first.

It’s the same for permission-granting beliefs and values about alcohol and other drugs.

Drug Court use of this CBT map to Explain Relapse and Recidivism.

How can drug courts use this CBT image to show how to overcome limiting beliefs and values? The map image shows the process. See page 15 of Drug Court Treatment: The Verdict.

Two drug court goals are: 1. Reduce Recidivism, and 2. Reduce the cost of crime and treatment. In order to do this, drug court clients need to know how their brains work.

Get on the beliefs train as soon as possible in the program. Your clients are not going to change their behavior long term unless you help them learn to change their limiting, anti-social, permission-granting, criminal thinking and conduct (CTC) beliefs and values about alcohol and other drugs (AOD).

BEMT, Belief Eye Movement Therapy is the way to fast-track belief changes. Each drug court should have its own practitioner. Contact me to discuss a training for your unit.
