A 3-hour training with Dr. Foad Afshar
January 24, 2024
PRESENTATION: There are a lot of factors that are blocks to our growth and progress in life. Economic, health, social and other factors are often easily identified as impediments to success. But there is another insidious factor that often operates under our radar with devastating consequences. That is the core beliefs that hold us back in believing in ourselves and propelling ourselves to a life we very much want to have. In this training, we will examine the concept of Self-Limiting beliefs, how to assess these beliefs in ourselves and our clients and explore strategies to overcome these beliefs to remove them as barriers towards our own success.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the concept and principles of self-limiting beliefs;
- List at least 3 strategies and techniques to elicit these beliefs and bring them to consciousness; and
- Describe strategies and techniques to neutralize and replace these beliefs for better motivational outcomes.
