“Happiness can be achieved through training the mind.”His Holiness Dalai Lama

Mind Behaviour Training is a novel cognitive-behavioural approach to anxiety and depression. As in traditional Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the premise is that emotional states are closely linked to dysfunctional thoughts and behaviours. By addressing those thoughts and behaviours, we can achieve healthier emotions.

What is the theory behind Mind Behaviour Training?

The concepts that constitute the basis of MBT are drawn from performance psychology. This is a summary of the current understanding of what achieves optimal performance in life:

  • When we engage in tasks, we have to ‘wind up’ and ‘push’ to a certain extent and for a given stretch of time to achieve a given set of goals.
  • The ‘winding up and pushing’ is both physical and mental
  • If we get the correct amount and combination of physical and mental, we are considered to be ‘in the zone. That is, the best state to be in during tasks.
  • Each type of task requires a different zone.
  • No matter how good we are at the above, each type of zone has a set lifespan. It can only be sustained for a certain amount of time.

Stress and burnout occur when we get the ‘winding up and pushing’ wrong or if we stay in the zone beyond its lifespan. In life, we are expected to be in the zone over long periods of time while we engage in multiple tasks simultaneously. It is extremely difficult to get it right all the time, considering there is no training currently available.

We look forward to welcoming you. Please confirm your attendance by email contact[@]jetavana.com.au
