Solving the Separation Problem (Lecture-Style Seminar) (Self-Study)



You already know that a problem cannot be solved without knowing what the real problem is. You already know that separation is the one and only problem, the real problem that is the root cause of all forms of problems our patients and clients bring to us. Now, the question is how do we help our clients solve the separation problem? This seminar is about just that. You will master how to implement the 7 steps to help your clients solve the separation problem, end their suffering, and fulfill their self-actualization needs.
