Prometheum Institute invites you to consider the Understanding Change approach to personal management, an innovative and effective way to manage or reverse Emotional and Behavioural excesses.


It gives positive results without requiring drugs, therapy, support, punishment, or entrapment!


Understanding Change considers that people drink, use drugs,get angry, show apathy, insecurity, irritability, jealousy, or fear, or seek superficial pleasures to excess  when the "noises" of life make them feel vulnerable or actually empties them of any dignity they may have had.


It does not follow the traditional path of seeing them as diseases or moral failings and then attempt to treat, suppress, or restructure them, the Understanding Change approach sees these as normal and necessary responses taken to excess.


Therefore, they are neither bad nor wrong.  They are only abnormal when they are taken to excess.


It sees that people use these normal responses to excess just to cope or simply survive.  Aggression, for example is good when we have to confront a threat.  It is wrong when we rely on it too easily, too often, or too severely. Then it becomes hostility.  So is eating, drinking, sexual activity, shopping, etc., useful and necessary if used in moderation and appropriately.  The same condition that can evoke anger or insecurity can instead evoke feelings of intellectual stimulation or even compassion.  So we  do not need to ‘unchange’ the presenting condition; we learn to adapt to the stresses by understanding and anticipating the forces that create them - change... in life responsibilities, health, other people's impositions and expectations.


Understanding Change offers a method of exploring change from a detached, rational perspective so that management is done positively and does not evoke those mood and behaviour alterations that can hamper success or lead to feelings of fear, oppression, or dissatisfaction.
