Emotion drives behavior therefore it makes perfect sense to define normal based on emotion NOT behavior.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
The recent DSM-5 has many descriptions of mental illness, but little information on what it really means to be mentally healthy. Kelly Burris, the developer of the Emotional Measurement Program, thinks this is a problem, describing the lack of information as an impediment to both patient progress and to mental health in general. Burris' Emotional Measurement system seeks to end this problem by providing stable, useful information to enable its readers to "Get Normal."
Burris notes that emotional distress is the usual impetus for seeking out therapy, and that a lack of metrics for emotional states makes it difficult to see improvement. The Emotional Measurement system, now offered in a series of three free eBooks, looks to offer the very support which Burris feels traditional psychotherapy lacks.
The three eBook series addresses a variety of topics, including the inner workings of emotion, a discussion of normal emotional ranges and controlling emotions. The program culminates in a call to "Get Normal" in 2014, a call to action appreciated by many who have struggled with emotional issues over the years.
This free eBook series is also coupled with the Burris Institute's own training course. The three-day course enables individuals to be trained in the Emotional Measurement process, with a quick two-week timeline between the course itself and overall certification. The eBooks are offered to give practitioners a better look at the 21-year old program, which has been effective in treating issues as a diverse as depression, PTSD and eating disorders.
