Welcome to the journey
of positive change
The BrainPerpetuum is not a usual blog.
It is a systematic self-help program for you to learn how to deal with negative emotions, making some substantial changes from week to week.
Each week will bring a new post in an organized order, providing you with information to learn, and homework tasks to practice between the posts.
To get the most of this blog, see the 9 rules that we recommend to be followed.
THE 9 RULES TO FOLLOW
COMMIT to your journey
Please read only ONE post PER WEEK, strictly following the CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER of posts

Regularly do your homework after each post
Prepare a diary (we suggest a file directory for your writings, drawings, and printed material)

Before you start, you need to make sure that your emotional states, any mental health conditions, any accompanying medical conditions, life circumstances, or treatment goals of the therapy you may already be engaged in, are not in a collision with the use of the BrainPerpetuum self-help program. Recommendations coming from a medical or mental health professional in one-on-one assessment and treatment is a priority, and must not be overlooked or discarded due to reading any information from the self-help sources. In spite of the useful information provided, self-help programs can never predict all the possible outcomes of each use, since they do not perform the assessment of user's mental health status and history, and cannot ensure the users' correct understanding and correct information use. One of the important reasons not to delay your one-on-one mental health assessment by a professional is also that any existing mental health disorder should be diagnosed and treated as early as possible, in order to have a better outcome and prevent consequences.
This is why we recommend that you first contact your medical service provider (your physician) and your mental health service provider (a licensed mental health professional) for your health assessment and treatment indication, and consult with them on whether to use the information and recommendations provided by BrainPerpetuum self-help program. If you are already engaged in one-on-one or group psychotherapy you should also consult with your psychotherapist about whether and how to follow the BrainPerpetuum self-help program. We also recommend that your use of this self-help program is guided and supervised by a mental health professional throughout the process of change.
It is also important to notice that this self-help program is designed to help the readers learn basic skills that can improve dealing with unhelpful emotions in their day-to-day life, and not for emergencies. If you feel in crisis before, during, or after using the information provided by BrainPerpetuum, you should immediately contact the nearest resources available to you for crisis and emergency situations, such as an emergency room at the local hospital, a crisis line, GP, or a family doctor, or the corresponding resources within your community support. You should have a list of the relevant phone numbers and addresses for each of these resources and keep this list easily accessible for you to use in case of emergency.
