What is Second Brain Psychology?
Second Brain Psychology is a new understanding of the human psyche which integrates the psycho-emotional functions of the Second Brain – the brain of the gut.
These are core functions which define our personality and our way of responding to people, circumstances and events. They also define our drives and priorities thus deeply influencing the choices we make, usually at an unconscious level.
The emotional mind of the Second Brain is therefore a driving force in the human psyche and behaviour. It is also the seat of the Emotional Memory, which is why the mind of the Second Brain is the focus of treatment in Second Brain Psychology.
Traumatic or undigested events and emotional stress can interfere with the core functions of the mind of the Second Brain causing psychological, emotional or behavioural problems as well as psychosomatic ailments.
Second Brain Psychology offers a number of solutions to these types of problems, which should be chosen on the basis of which objective needs to be reached.
Treatment: In brief, treatment is indicated when the psychological, emotional or behavioural problem is deeply rooted or causing hindrance or distress. Treatment with this method is specifically aimed at the Emotional Memory of the Second Brain and takes place through interaction with the functions of the mind of the Second Brain, which has its own specific parameters and internal language. However, since the two minds work together as a whole, treatment also positively affects the functions of the mind of the head.
Psycho-emotional Check-Up: Second Brain Psychology offers a unique opportunity, namely the possibility of assessing one’s psycho-emotional state by scanning the Emotional Memory of the Second Brain for hidden traumas, emotional overload or blocks. This can be particularly useful as a preventative measure against psychosomatic ailments, as well as to safeguard one’s mental and emotional well-being.
Second Brain Psychology Workshops: These serve several purposes, namely: to learn how to manage problematic areas of one’s life in order to diminish related emotional stress, to learn how to move forward on problematic areas of one’s life, to diminish and manage accumulated stress, to learn how to manage relationships from the point of view of hidden dynamics and of interaction at an emotional level. In brief:
1. they provide a step-by-step understanding of the mechanisms of the emotional mind of the Second Brain and how these influence personality, outlook and relationships.
2. they provide a step-by-step understanding of one’s own life experiences seen from the point of view of the symbolic, emotional mind of the Second Brain, and how they have influenced one’s approach to life and to others. This reduces inner stress and emotional overload and provides the knowledge necessary for coping with specific areas of one’s life (relationships: sentimental, work-related, family/children, social interactions; motivation; stress management; decision-making; change-management.)
There are also Topic-Workshops for specific topics such as:
- HR management
- creative writing
- visual arts
- learning skills
These can be followed up by more in-depth workshops, or by study courses and training.
Life Coaching/Counselling: the in-depth understanding of human behaviour which Second Brain Psychology provides is of great value in the context of Life coaching and Couselling because it allows the Coach/Counsellor to contextualize the difficulties or problems of their Clients within a broader more comprehensive framework which includes the Client’s specific personality traits and outlook on life as well as their more hidden psycho-emotional needs. This means being able to provide the Client with effective guidelines for tapping his or her resources to the full. Main areas covered: relationships, family dynamics, child-management, teaching, work or study-related contexts, social interaction, self-development-
These are short theme-based courses of varying sizes which deal with a topic of general interest of a specific area. The idea is to take a look at how the mind of the Second Brain works and why it plays an important role in all aspects of life.
