OK... what does "Conflict Resolution Outside Normal Education" mean? Well, to answer this question is not as easy as it is to list the terms of this acronym... Because the answer involves those elements of Man that the brain cannot perceive, and thus, modern education [as a system or practice confined primarily to Intellectualism], is being encouraged by many in education today who [unknown to themselves of course] naturally avoid the emotionality of Man due to a natural and non-conscious fear operating from deep Within the MIND realms of these people. This pattern of avoidance of emotionality is a "condition" that affects a certain type personality. One symptom of this condition is that a person is naturally confined to the "malady of Intellectualism". That is, such people are cut off from their emotions to various degrees. The most extreme example of this condition would be the 'sociopathic' and the 'psychopathic' personalities.
So, what education fails to appreciate is that the practice of education today is systematically denying a large portion of what makes Man, Man. This is the primary [causal factor] driving those who are pushing for Common Core]. That is, the people pushing for Common Core are people who [unknowingly] fear the Esoteric dimensions of Man, and they prefer a curriculum that intentionally punishes creativity and spontaneity in children. Common Core seems like an ideal solution to the Intelack type personality: Research Here.
So, the real 'Causal' behind much of the 'conflict' of young people is psychological [or emotion-based], and manifests in physical symptoms of behavior. To address the behavior alone is to miss the cause of the behavior entirely, and to focus on behavior unnecessarily exacerbates the misperceptions held Within the MINDs of children.
I believe a "conflict" is an unresolved problem Within the MIND of a person, and that the physical behavior of a person is a 'symptom' of the repressed emotional conflict that causes a person distress. Most often, the "cause" of a conflict is difficult to discover for modern mental health [because modern mental health (or "BS&bp" research here) denies the MIND of Man], that drugs have become the common solution for conflicts. What if what causes a person's conflict could be discovered and eliminated by "proper" [although unusual] education? This is the purpose of CRONE [or "I-Ed"]. To do this properly, it would be necessary to discover what is "causing" a person's Conflict.... and this "causal" will usually be found within a person's MIND realm via competent psychotherapy. However, there are few capable of such psychotherapy today, so we need an alternative. And my recommendation would be CRONE. Misperceptions will always be taken-on by a child at the time of birth. This is both natural and necessary. But... the impact of the repressed misperceptions Within a child can be lessened considerably by a teacher trained in encouraging a child's natural Intuition [an aspect of Spirituality] by providing what Carl Rogers called "unconditional positive regard".
This perfectly natural process that takes place at the time of birth... is part of how a child's MIND uses aspects of the MINDs of the parents to develop the self-image and personality of the child. This bit of knowledge was abandoned in the early 1900s when B.F. Skinner insisted that there was nothing Within Man that could account for the present behavior of Man.
Unfortunately Skinner as an Intelack type personality [Research Here], whose fear of the "unknown" dimensions Within his own MIND caused him to project his fear as "denial that the MIND even exists". Unfortunately there are many people on Earth who view life just as Skinner did. That the deeply repressed fear that drove Skinner to believe what he believed is the same fear of the unknown Within the MINDs of many people today is indeed unfortunate. But it nonetheless exists, and it continues because there is no way to observe this "condition" of a person simply by looking at a person. This condition is not a matter of IQ, or education, or environmental conditioning... it is a maturational condition of a person's Soul... and this moves the condition into an entirely different [even fearful] level of concern, understanding, and evaluation. If a person is not familiar with [and even Knowledgeable concerning] the Law of Karma and that of Reincarnation, then that person would automatically deny and resist both of these basic realities of Life... as well as the notion that deeply repressed misperceptions Within the MIND of Man can cause conflicts in a person's thoughts and behaviors.
The "one life to live" notion pushed by many sects of Christianity has done dreadful harm to mankind, and prevented the natural maturational growth of Man in the West, and in America. And this error in the misinterpretation of the Bible has contributed to the many misunderstandings of Man in the fields of psychology, sociology and education. It also contributed to the pubic ignorance which accepted the insane ideas of Skinner in his time, and Common Core in our present culture. The one-dimensional view of Man leads people to worship the brain, and deny three-fourths of the whole of Man.
3."Outside" normal education simply means going beyond the current operational limits of education. Current education celebrates the brain and its thinking, and Intellectualism [explained here]. As a result of this, "traditional" education has little interest in the faculty of Intuition [a crucial element of Man, and the ONLY means by which a human being can access the Esoteric [or ordinarily invisible] dimensions of Man, one of which is the MIND, which is responsible for the Conflicts so many children exhibit].
A MIND was attached to every Soul when the Soul entered the Creation. The MIND provided each Soul an opportunity to engage in duality. The MIND has two natures. One is the Yang, male, out-going energy, and the other is the Yin, female, in-going energy. These two natures of the MIND allow the Soul, by using the MIND, to explore the duality of Creation. The good and evil of Life, in other words.
In other words, until and unless you are "ready" to let go of the notion that your brain and its thinking is the only way for you to communicate with yourself, you remain locked into your brain... which is easily controlled by your MIND, which may want you to remain in conflict... rather than expose what it holds hidden within itself?
You see, "thinking about" your conflict is the approach of modern mental health. That is, the silly notion that you can "think" yourself free of your conflict. And this would be fine, if your conflict had anything to do with your brain or its thinking? But your "conflict" is taking place in spaces your brain cannot perceive.
Your conflict is between your MIND [which is not your brain], and your Apapsyche [the Operational Energy of your Soul], which is certainly not part of your brain. And of crucial importance... your conflict is due to a misperception held within your MIND. [HOW DO I KNOW THIS?] I discovered this in 1978, as a consequence of my own course of psychotherapy, and in observing this in clients and students over 30 years of practice as a psychotherapist.
So, to imagine that you can resolve your conflict by thinking about it, or talking about it, is quaint, but fully irrational and destined to fail..... Leaving you with your only alternative being that of drugs. Let us all say NO to drugs!!
