Drunkenness. Sobriety training

The sin of drunkenness. Treatment of alcoholism

In Christianity, the sin of drunkenness refers to gluttony and is a mortal sin. It is the victory of the body over the spirit. Excessive drinking leads to alcoholism, and this is expressed in the desire to drink more and more. Alcoholism must be treated. This is a behavioural disorder in which rapid social degradation occurs. With each dose of alcohol, a person’s central nervous system is destroyed more and more. In the end, psychosis and aggressive behaviour are even more likely. A person is deprived of the elementary behavioural skills needed to think and work. It often starts slowly and happens unnoticed by the affected person. Personal efforts of the believer and his/her prayers to god are the main methods of changing this behaviour in Christianity.

Psychological assistance in spiritual psychology

In practical behavioral psychology, the problems of drunkenness and subsequent alcoholism are referred to as behavioural disorders. Therefore, at our centre, we do not treat alcoholism as in clinics, but we teach the affected person a new type of behavior without the use of medications. There is a method of psychological help for alcoholism. If you feel that your willpower is not strong enough, you can undergo sobriety coaching from our psychological centre in addition to your spiritual practice.

Psychological services and religion

There have been many cases of healing serious diseases in believers through prayer and spiritual practices. However, at the same time, believers periodically seek medical advice, and with behavioural psychology being more than a hundred years old, the level of its effectiveness in psychological requests is comparable to the effectiveness of medical methods. Given that in psychology many topics echo religious requests, the professional help of a psychologist can provide significant support in the religious development of a person.

Why is behavioural psychology better than others?

Behavioural psychology appeared as an alternative to the well-known psychological modalities. There are many psychological modalities founded on the principles of introspection (personality theory, psychoanalysis, etc.). Unfortunately, introspection does not meet the criteria of the scientific method. In contrast, behavioural psychology arose based on practical scientific behavioural discoveries, so its effectiveness is more acute. This is the only psychological modality in which the specialist is obliged to guarantee the result.

Online school. Online learning

The coaching is held remotely, online, so no matter where you live, you can also access it. You just need a smartphone or computer and internet access. You will not have to travel to the centre, just connect to the website and undergo training at home in your favorite chair or sofa.
