The Awareness Integration Theory can be implemented in Psychotherapy and coaching sessions.
THE MECHANISM OF AWARENESS INTEGRATION PROCESS
Awareness Integration Model is a Multi-Modality Psychological Model that enhances Self-Awareness, releases past traumas and/or psychological blocks, promotes clarity and positive attitude to learn, implements new skills for an effective, productive, and successful Life. This model synthesizes components of already stablished psychological theories and approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Person-centered approaches, Attachment theories, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnosis, and Mind- Body theories. The Awareness Integration model operates based on 9 principles that have been researched for many years through different theories. 1) Reality of the observer is subjective based on the state of being beliefs, meanings, emotions, and behaviors. 2) The potential to learn skills to have a functional and successful life is available for human being. 3) Skills are learned through physical and psychological development in combination with the mirroring of parents and environment. 4) Perception of the information and experience allows meaning to be assigned and categorization and generalization of the assigned meanings about the self and the world allows a personal identify to be realized. 5) Experiences are stored in memory cognitively, emotionally and somatically. A traumatic experience is compartmentalizing and waits integration to be healed and reintegrated. 6) When the unintegrated belief-emotion-body state is healed and released and integrated, neutral and positive attitude are surfaced. 7) Through the completion of this process, the creation of an intended and conscious choice regarding values, thoughts, feelings, actions and results. 8) Skills can be learned and sustained in a neutral environment toward a desired and intentional result. 9) Conscious and clear vision of a desired result with tangible goal setting, effective planning and efficient action raises the probability of achieving one’s desired results (Zeine, 2014).
The goal of this model is to foster awareness and to integrate all split parts of the self from the past into the present, create a vision for the future, create solid goals and action plans with an external feedback loop to ensure a sustainable successful and fulfilled life. The primary method of AI involves identifying one’s negative and/or irrational core beliefs, the formulas one has created to operate within one’s life, and the identities they have created, sustained and operated. AI will allow for the release of emotional and somatic charges that remain from unintegrated experiences and memories and the dismantling of negative core beliefs. This process assures the integration of the self which will allow skill building and creation of a chosen and intended future to be attainable without the past sabotaging the future. In this research students were directed through the use of a structured set of questions for awareness, and mind-body technique for integration, laid out through six phases. Each phase has its own set of questions and an intent specific to that phase. Clients will be directed through all six phases and explore their relation with different areas of their lives including their school, careers, finances, relationships, families, childhood, themselves, death, God and spirituality, and other significant areas especially related to the student.
