This course is designed for those who follow the principle of “help yourself”, as well as for those who do not have time and money to visit psychotherapists or study in expensive MBA programs to start their own business. This course is for those who like and ready to work independently, and who need basic knowledge of psychology to remove mental blocks and fears before starting a new career or a new business project, and who are ready to be aware of mental and behavioral traps, as well as to rework past traumas that greatly hinder our progress towards success and self-realization.
This course is based on the logotherapy (therapy of mening), the method of the Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl, a former prisoner of the Nazi concentration camp, the founder of the third Viennese school of psychotherapy. The course includes elements of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, integral neurolinguistic programming and positive psychology. In addition, the on-line game and assignments are based on group dynamics and the IOA-concept developed by a group of professors at the University of Vienna. The concept of Strategy Maps presented by David Norton and Robert Kaplan, professors at Harvard Business School, is used to develop life, career and business strategies.
The exercises and psychological interventions are built around elements that can be imaging as a house. In the exercises for Theme 1-3, we will step by step analyze all the elements of this house, from the roof to the foundation. We clean the old rubbish of resentment, obsolete beliefs and false attitudes from the cellars of the soul, strengthen the foundation of our psyche and treat childhood traumas. We are clearing the way to healthy relationships with people and ourselves.
During the exercises for Theme 4-5, we build new walls to maintain our physical and mental health, shape the mindset for gaining new knowledge and forming social connections, and create motivation for changes. At the last stage, we build a new roof of values and goals, realize our SELF or true identity, create a new vision and write a new own life scenario.

— Financial independence;

— Sincere relationships in love and friendship;

— Physical, mental and soul health;

All members of a P2P group can initiate an online game in Zoom to resolve an internal conflict or specific relationship problem. To do this, any participant can create an event in the P2P group on Facebook by inviting 3 to 5 participants and the group administrator to the game. The initiator creates an event, where he/she describes a specific situation. After approval by the group admin, invitations to Zoom meeting will be sent to the game participants.
During the game in Zoom, participants work out a problem situation according to the scheme:
— Description of the situation by the initiator;
— Clarifying questions of the participants;
— Participants feedback and associations;
— Feedback of the initiator;
— Hypotheses of the participants;
