Learn about, experience, and practice an entirely unique and innovative system with a comprehensive theory to: a) reduce somatic overload of anxiety, panic, and distress states; b) overcome resistance to healing; and c) deal with negative transference from clients.

When primary caregivers tell stories to children — who are not yet cortically bounded and have not yet reached emotional maturation — about something hurtful or painful that happened in the past to them or to members of their kinship circle, religion, or tribe/clan, the child unwittingly and unconsciously makes movies somewhere in the back of their minds where they personally provide the caretaker with whomever would have provided the missing justice and satisfaction of essential needs.  The earlier in life that people hear such stories, the more unbounded their emotional and body reactions will be. When a child perceives a gap in the life of a caretaker, they feel distress and part of their persona develops to fill that gap. If this innate desire for justice is exercised too early before a child’s maturational needs are met and before they are bounded cortically, they develop an exclusive justice and a sense that they are the one and only healer (something akin to feeling like the Messiah or a Savior). As a result of unconsciously experiencing themselves as the ‘The One and Only,’ the two fundamental forces of life, aggression and sexuality, break loose leading to immense somatic overload.  With PBSP Holes In Roles technique the primary nuclear forces of life, the capacity to create (sexuality) and the capacity to destroy (aggression), can be harnessed and therefore modulated resulting in greater comfort and fruition than can be achieved through any other therapeutic approach.  In addition, this technique helps clients to step out of the role of Messiah and become more collegial and collaborative in life. Using PBSP Holes In Roles technique also dramatically reduces resistance to healing and shortens the length of therapy.

Holes In Roles Theory. Participants will first learn the comprehensive psychological theory underlying the Holes In Roles technique. When someone hears or reads stories with emotional content this awakens a part of the brain that sees those events in the mind’s eye and moves in reaction in the mind’s body.  This is not under conscious control and happens without our choosing to do it. When children hear stories of injustice or unfinished kinship relationships, a creative part of the brain gets mobilized and it makes a movie in the brain that they do not see in their mind’s eye, but their mind’s body reacts to it because they are unwittingly actors in it.  For example, when a child hears that Grandma’s husband died and she had to raise her children alone, the child’s psyche knows that Grandma should have had a husband and her children should have had a father. They then subconsciously make a movie in their minds where they are their Grandma’s husband as well as the father of those children because the compassionate impulse and Messiah aspect within them wants to fill the perceived gap or a hole in these kinship relationships.  Because the child is the actor in this unconscious movie, the associated motor actions of aggression and sexuality are loosened which leads to shifts in the energy systems of the entire body. To modulate those emotions that are released as a consequence of this unconscious movie it is necessary to experience a consciously visually seen movie where the holes in kinship relationships are filled by appropriate people, such as a husband, wife, or parents as opposed to being provided by the child.

Making Movies Using Objects.  With PBSP Holes In Roles technique, participants will learn how to create the needed ‘consciously-seen’ movies for clients by pantomiming moving objects that represent the injured family member (envisioned at an age before the injustice occurred) and their appropriate ideal healers to create the healing experience for the client of witnessing the ideal circumstances being provided to their caretaker by the ideal family member. When clients see these new movies it makes a dramatic shift in their self-image, the feelings in their bodies, and the energy available in their bodies. This energy is now able to be modulated, and clients feel greatly relieved and no longer overloaded with emotions.  As a result of being released from the burden of feeling like the healers of their parents and caretakers, clients will also feel greater receptivity and readiness to take in help and receive healing for their own basic needs. The speed with which this transformation occurs and the dramatic shifts in somatic overload are striking.
