The Process Continued
Human beings proactively do exactly what they want to do at any given moment under any given set of circumstances and then create reasons post facto for their behavior.
Not only do we facilitate our clients self understanding free of cultural values, we work within a framework that is free of all elements of Psychopathology. Psychopathology is a term coined in the late 1800s and has never been under the scrutiny of scientific validation. From the concept of Psychopathology, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual was created in 1952. At present, the 5th edition of the DSM, as well as, previous editions, has been declared invalid by the National Institute of the Mental Health. (See articles in Resources).
Dr. Strachan has never embraced the concept of Psychopathology or the DSM. Beginning his training in 1953 under the Boulder Model (1949), Scientist/Practitioner, he was trained in the Biological and Sciences of Genetics, Anatomy and Physiology and Neurophysiology. The foundation of those biological studies directed his studies and understanding of Clinical and Counseling Psychology.
Whether you self-refer or make a professional referral, you will not be diagnosed under any label. No one can be sent as an “identified patient”. All individuals and collective bodies come voluntarily. You will devise a working system to direct your own life. We continue facilitating that process of self understanding and self directedness until you, the client decide you are proficient at utilizing the dynamic parts of yourself to create the life you want for yourself and with others.
We present to you a broad spectrum of professional facilitators who work with many modalities. We intend to add more professionals who bring their own special talents and insightful ways of working with unique individuals, couples, families and those interested in training.
We design each facilitating set of processes according to the purposes and wants of our clients. The scope of our services include, individual sessions of one or two hours per week, one to three day intensive sessions and one to two week intensive sessions at a retreat center. We construct Wilderness Encounters for seven to ten days. We also will work as a team with groups of individuals, couples and families.
