Pride. Modesty training

The sin of pride. Boastfulness, vanity, arrogance, and impudence

In Christianity, pride is a mortal sin. This is a basic sin which gives rise to others. It illustrates the victory of the physical over the spiritual and manifests itself in the rejection of God and the contempt of others. The display of pride is evidence of spiritual impotence and evidence that a person lacks a virtuous and spiritual attitude to the people around them.

Modesty. Prudence training

The behaviour of an individual who knows how to control his/her desires in Christianity is called prudent. An important method of pride control in Christianity is fasting, where the personal willpower of the believer and his/her prayers are addressed to God. You can learn this with modesty training from our psychological centre. Participating in the world around you without pride is a very important skill for a spiritual person.

 Psychological assistance in spiritual psychology

In practical behavioural psychology, pride is referred to as a behavioral disorder of irrational thinking.  If you complete the selflessness training, you will have the desire and ability to control the manifestations of pride. If you feel that the willpower you use to control your behaviour is not enough, you can undergo poise training from our psychology 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 faith 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.
