There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river.
We need to go upstream and find out why they’re falling in. Desmond Tutu
Mental health is of paramount importance today. With the ever-changing dynamics of society, the rapid growth of social media and the pressures of living in such uncertain times, exacerbated by Covid-19.
When it comes to mental illness, only two questions really matter: What is the behaviour by which mental health problems—eating disorders, self-harming, addiction, depression, suicidal inclination—reveal themselves. An even more critical question is why?
The mind is no different to any other mechanism; if it’s not working properly, you can only fix it once you understand the problems it is facing internally. With mental processes this is notoriously hard to identify. Where there is no obvious chemical element, the problem is, mostly, all in the mind. Its cause is probably unique to the sufferer, and hidden under layers of accumulated memory and experience, much of it influenced and hidden by the very problem we’re trying to unearth.
The Organic ScoreCard is a proven tool that directly addresses this issue. It is not a ‘cure’ for mental illness. It works to reveal the cause of a problem in the individual’s mind, which is the essential first step to effective treatment. And it is a process that has proved particularly powerful and helpful with adults and young people alike.
We all develop our own individual strategies, automatic patterns of behaviour based on our own experience that help us get through everyday life. If these strategies are flawed, once they have been hard-wired into the brain’s functions—which generally happens during our early youth (0-5 years)—they can result in deeply self-destructive and distressing patterns of thought and behaviour.
An Organic ScoreCard assessment quickly and accurately identifies the origins of a participant’s sub-conscious life strategy and coping mechanisms. It goes to the heart of the ingrained thinking that can lead to negativity, anxiety, depression, and even suicidal ideation. By helping the participant better understand their strengths, an assessment can also assist with communication and social skills.
You will complete a short assessment (about 25 minutes) in the time and place of your own choosing. You’ll be ‘scoring’ statements in accordance to their relevance to you. This establishes a personal profile, proven to be highly accurate and revealing with regards to individual life patterns and behaviour. You will receive an automated report with an overview of your profile. This is just a ‘teaser’ and there is a lot more to see and hear; the real insight into your results begins when you meet your coach/therapist for your 60-minute feedback session. Further optional steps include coaching, therapy, guidance and advice for any existing pastoral/therapeutic care.
Marc Grond explains that trauma blinds you to the lessons you learn in life. The Organic ScoreCard focuses on the period in which trauma took place rather than going into detail about the event. This gives you insight into the messages from your life you might have missed because of trauma.
