5 day intensive

Joan E. Childs, LCSW, has created a FIVE-DAY INTENSIVE as an alternative to in-patient treatment centers.


Joan E. Childs, LCSW, has created a FIVE-DAY INTENSIVE as an alternative to in-patient treatment centers.  As the first affiliate to THE JOHN BRADSHAW CENTER, Joan has felt the need to continue the transformational work created and practiced at the Institute. For several years, Joan has successfully implemented a Mass Time Therapy approach to help clients work through issues effectively, which usually take months or years to complete.


This forty hours intensive program provides clients with an opportunity to clear blocks and release the energy that is keeping them stuck so that they may maximize their growth and fully potentiate.  This intensive has been the result of working with clients for many years who have not been able to make the necessary changes in the typical 45-50 minute hour session that traditional therapy and most insurance companies dictate. The Five Day Intensive promotes healing that would otherwise take months, perhaps even years to accomplish.  A combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Experiential modalities are used to maximize recovery.  The client will develop new neuro-pathways in the brain to reprocess implicit memories and exchange them for explicit outcomes.


The client is introduced to a multitude of technologies including hypnosis, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), NLP(Neuro-linguistic Programming, Primal Work (Gestalt, Inner Child Work and Psychodrama), and a new innovative original program created by Joan, called PARTS WORK, which integrates the parts of the personality into the whole to bring about a corrective experience and internal shift, on a very deep level with permanent results.




The cost for the FIVE-DAY INTENSIVE is $7500.00 (No insurance benefits).  A fifty percent deposit is required, the remainder to be paid upon arrival.  For further information, please call JOAN E. CHILDS at (954)568-1004.
