pc Course Outline

The Level 1 RPT course introduces you to a radical concept: Healing That (actually) Works! There are two types of healing techniques, a “bypass” (a shortcut to get a temporary result) and a permanent change. Almost every single therapy that exists is a bypass. That’s why you feel good for a while but the results don’t last forever. RPT is designed from the bottom up to yield permanent results – that’s why we teach all the tools right in the Level 1 course. [For more information about preventing a bypass with your healing technique, click here.]
There are two fundamental problems which must be solved before a person can make a permanent change. These are:

  • removing the self-sabotage or secondary gains of a problem;
  • identifying and removing the underlying cause of a problem.

It doesn’t matter what technique or therapy you use, you’ll face these two problems. The unique strength of RPT is that we solved both of these problems (possibly for the first time). We can quickly teach you how to dissolve sabotage and find the root cause of a problem. And yes, we do all of this within our Level 1 Course. That’s why we call Level 1 “Healing That Works.” For the first time, it will!

In the Detail below you can review

  • the full course contents;
  • eliminating self sabotage;
  • finding the underlying cause;
  • the Triune Brain Method for healing trauma; and
  • how to restore missing Inner Resources (feelings)


The full course contents includes:

  • The different mind centers (extended Triune Brain Model)
  • How to bring the minds into oneness or “coherence”
  • How to feel empathy for your client or another person and know their emotional state (the “pretending technique”)
  • How and why trauma is stored in the body;
  • How to quickly release trauma from the body without re-living it (the Triune Brain Method and acknowledgement Process)
  • Why trauma happens and how to prevent it (the Missing Resource model)
  • The difference between a permanent change and a bypass
  • How to restore missing parts of the self (feelings, skills, insights) in order to make permanent change and prevent recurrence of trauma (the Extended Triune Brain Model for Restoring Resources)
  • Secondary Gains – how and why people have hidden benefits from their symptoms and how to remove these (the de-armouring process);
  • Self-sabotage behaviour – why people act against their own best interests and how to eliminate this (the Sabotage structure)
  • A simple process of Manifestation (attracting more of what you want into your life)
  • At least two full practice opportunities so that you can experience permanent changes within yourself and practice helping another person.

Self-sabotage occurs when you say you want one thing (e.g. “I want to be healthy”) but you find yourself doing something else (e.g. drinking, smoking, not exercising, etc). A very common example of sabotage is known as a secondary gain. This occurs when you get some external benefit from your problem. For example, when you’re sick you get more love and attention, so you don’t really want to get better.

The problems of secondary gain and self-sabotage are very well known within the medical and psychology communities. Until now there’s been no simple solution to the problem – some people simply don’t get better. However with RPT we can easily solve this problem.

In the full RPT process you will learn how to eliminate sabotage and secondary gains by quickly identifying what the benefits of the sabotage are, and what they are compensating for. For example, if the client is getting more love when they are sick, they are probably compensating for an underlying lack of love. There’s almost anyways a deeper insecurity or vulnerability hiding beneath the client’s problem, and we provide the tools for uncovering this so that you can be sure that you’re working on the real issue.
Once you have identified the underlying vulnerability, you use the second RPT process to heal the true cause of this lack. (See the next section.)

Most therapies claim to find the true cause in some form or another. And yet almost none of these therapies really work. We make this claim because we’ve noticed that with other therapies, the client usually experiences one of the following outcomes:

  • there’s a short term change (up to two weeks);
  • the problem appears to go away, but the same issue returns in another form.

For example, Simon had a serious car accident many years before he developed RPT. As well as breaking bones, he fell into a depression. He received treatment from several therapies with good results. It seemed like the problem was gone (and the depression lifted). However, three years later, Simon experienced a near-identical accident which induced similar symptoms. What he leaned from this was that the symptoms had been treated (more likely “bypassed”) but the underlying cause (lack of concentration) had not been treated. When you really focus on the cause, and not the symptoms, you can not only heal trauma but also prevent its recurrence. This is a much higher standard of healing than any other therapy even tries to achieve.

Let us provide a deeper example using the context of physical or sexual abuse within a relationship. There are many therapies that claim to help a person who has been the victim of abuse. These therapies can help the victim to feel better and re-build their lives. However, it’s well known that people who have been in past abusive relationships are most likely to choose a very similar type of partner again in their next relationship. In other words, existing therapy for abuse does not break the cycle of abuse. RPT breaks this cycle. In the RPT process we don’t focus on the symptom (the trauma of abuse). We focus on all the decisions that lead to that moment. Why do you choose that type of partner? What prevents you reaching out for help? What emotional resources or attributes are you lacking that would enable you to make better decisions in the future?

The RPT process involves asking the right questions to find the real beginning. There’s a number of “tests” that we use to verify that we have indeed found the true cause. And then we use a process known as the Triune Brain method to heal the true cause and restore the missing resources. You can read more about this process in the next section.

Most therapies work on either a mental level or an emotional level (and sometimes a physical level). The result is that problems can appear to be solved on one level, but still exist on other levels. An excellent example of this is with the out-dated concept known as “changing beliefs.” It is possible to change a so-called “negative belief” into a “positive belief.” This often enables the client to feel better or think differently about a situation. However the result is what’s technically known as a “mental bypass.” The client thinks differently, but may not feel or act differently. On the deep physical or instinctive level, they are still responding to old patterns and old threats. It’s not possible to re-pattern these instincts through a mental process such as changing beliefs.

The Triune Brain Method is a process whereby the Head, Heart and Gut (loosely corresponding with the frontal cortex, limbic system and brain stem) work simultaneously to create a change. It’s necessary to change how you think, feel and instinctively react to a situation at the same time. The Triune Brain Method allows us to do this.

The Triune Brain Method builds on leading research by psychiatrists such as Peter Levine and Robert Scaer. They identified the important role of “stuck” survival instincts in relation to healing trauma. The RPT approach builds on this, but in an entirely new way. Techniques based on the Levine-Scaer work require the client to relive and re-experience the trauma in order to clear it. This process is often difficult and traumatic for the client and potentially also for the therapist. The RPT approach does not require the client to relive or re-experience the trauma in any way. This makes the Triune Brain Method a very fast and efficient tool for releasing trauma.

It should be noted that the Triune Brain Method makes up a very small part (perhaps 5%) of RPT. It’s not the only method for healing trauma, and you are welcome to substitute other methods.

The most important part of RPT is not how you heal trauma, but rather which trauma you heal. Finding the beginning or the true cause is by far the most important part of the work, and the most important contribution of RPT to the therapy world. That’s because, when you find the true cause, you are able to access missing inner resources.

In RPT we take a radical new and effective approach to restoring inner resource states. An inner resource is a feeling, ability or instinct that exists in your natural state. Examples include love, joy or nurturing. Most people are missing many of these resources. That means that in a precise context, a person is unable to feel love, or to forgive, or have a healthy sense of perspective.

A very important implication of missing resources is that we experience a lot more trauma than we otherwise would. That’s because resources help us to prevent trauma. Most trauma (over 90%) is preventable in the sense that it would not have happened if we had access to the correct resources. To Pu that another way, a person with the right resources would either make different decisions to prevent the trauma from happening, or would have have the same physical experience without it creating a trauma. (For example a minor accident can be a psychological trauma for one person or have zero effect on another person.)

If you heal trauma without accessing the missing resource the result is unstable. The person may feel better, but they haven’t really leaned from the experience. There is a very high risk of the trauma reoccurring.

There are two key technical problems – identifying precisely which resource would be required to prevent trauma, and actually restoring this resource. RPT solves both these problems in a novel way.

There are two keys to the success of RPT process. These are:

  • the client must address the question of why the resource was originally lost. The way to permanently restore the resource is to heal what we call the “resource trauma,” which is the original loss (often inherited or created by family system dynamics).
  • the resource must be recovered internally, never externally. You cannot “give” a feeling to a client (or “download” it as others have called it). That is always a short term result because it doesn’t deal with the reason why the client lost the resource. The client must re-connect with it inside of themselves. After all it’s their resource (their own natural state) that they are restoring.

The outcome of a RPT process is unlikely any other form of therapy. That’s because the resource recovery restores the client’s natural state. There is no short term “euphoria” effect (common in other therapies). The client simply re-aligns their seance of self. They can go on with their lives without being stuck in the past.
