Mental & Emotional Development:
A Permanent Cure for the Neurotic
Sources of Human Unhappiness

CMED education begins with the most basic, personal, and universal internal need—the need to be Seen, Understood, and Valued—first by our parents, then by ourselves, and finally, in an equal and reciprocal relationship with a romantic partner.

Next, we define the universal need to master Growing, Giving and Sharing. With a normal education, we never understand these activities in enough detail to master all three for our own fulfillment, or to build satisfying and meaningful romantic relationships.  This is the primary reason that passion and real intimacy are rare in long-term romantic relationships.

These two categories of internal needs are the foundation upon which everyone’s self-worth, emotional security, and internal fulfillment are based.  In mastering both categories, we open the door to a parallel internal universe necessary to fulfill our potential to understand, care, master, create and contribute.

In mastering the internal needs and potentials critical to personal fulfillment, and necessary for romantic intimacy and passion, we also learn to think for understanding.  This skill prepares us to master every need and potential.

Thinking for understanding provides the skills essential to explore any significant topic to the point of discovering what is true, so we can provide what is needed.  This is a fundamental prerequisite to becoming internally independent

Who Can Benefit From CMED Education?

Individuals & Couples:  In normal life we are not taught how to fulfill ourselves.  Instead, we often choose a mate hoping he/she will compensate for our inability to make ourselves happy.

With CMED training we learn to master our own needs and potentials. Then, we learn how to give energy, interest, and attention with the purpose of understanding and nurturing our mate.

Next, we adopt a shared purpose to grow in understanding ourselves and our mate. Then, we learn how to share reality, personal conversation, conscious touch, and quintessential moments.

Parents & Teachers:  Educating children is now largely limited to teaching right from wrong, to obey authority, to learn how to read, write and do arithmetic, and if lucky, learn to appreciate the arts. There is however, no education for internal development.

CMED offers parents and teachers the information they need to teach children how to develop self-worth, emotional safety, and self-awareness—as well as how to explore any topic, discover what is true, and then, provide what is needed.

In this process, parents and teachers learn how to educate children in the layers of developmental tasks necessary to master internal needs and potentials.

Mental Health Professionals:  Traditional psychotherapy does not even pretend to understand, or teach us how to complete our developmental tasks, or master our internal needs and potentials.

While psychotherapy can help us feel better, it does not provide the objective internal competence we need. With CMED training, therapists will acquire the essential skills and awareness necessary to offer real healing and measurable internal growth.
