encompasses Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR), Life Stress Reduction (LSR),
and the Ability Enhancement (AE) viewing curriculum. As you know, TIR
and LSR are taught in three workshops. The Ability Enhancement viewing
curriculum facilitates personal growth and development of potential, and is
taught in a series of eight shorter workshops, the Ability Enhancement
The curriculum: Because the
work of Applied Metapsychology is educational in nature, we call this
significant block of work the viewing curriculum, in the sense of, “a
specific course of study” since a client/viewer, engaged in the educational
work of the sessions, completes each section in order as s/he moves
along. The curriculum provides a long general case plan broken into
eight sections (that are customized for each individual viewer) giving the
sequence of techniques designed to gradually increase a viewer’s abilities by
removing charge and exercising life skills the viewer already has in order to
improve the viewer’s command over these skills.
Pre-requisites of the AEW
Series: you need to have taken the 3 TIR and LSR workshops and, generally,
completed your own personal Life Stress Reduction work (case plan).
The AEW Series teaches:
● The full viewing curriculum. Here we move fully into
the realm of personal growth, employing the strategy of discovery
(compare with unburdening), to allow clients to find areas of charge
they had not previously been aware of and to develop innate abilities toward
self-actualization. Discovery is the mode of facilitation that selectively
reactivates, addresses and discharges areas not currently activated, for the
purpose of increasing the viewer’s ability and stabilizing the person at a
higher level of functioning.
● More of the philosophy and fundamental skill sets that underlie
the effectiveness of Applied Metapsychology, such that the practitioner will
see enhanced results with clients at every level as s/he moves through
● A large number of specialized programs and collections of
techniques to address particular situations, such as pregnancy and new
parenthood, the unique challenges of the creative person, the client who is
in an oppressive/abusive relationship, etc.
● Specialized skills and techniques for dealing with difficult
● Technical direction knowledge and skills covering all of the
There are extra programs and collections of techniques included with the
teaching of the curriculum sections. The eight workshops are a treasure
chest of additional techniques and programs, useful for viewers at every
level of ability.
The eight AE workshops are usually taught in sets of two, so there are four
groupings of workshops. That cuts down travel expenses and also gives
students time to co-facilitate each section of the viewing curriculum as they
go along. There are significant personal gains to be had from this
