Frequently Asked Questions About Holistic Psychology, Alternative Therapy, Holistic Psychology Education, Schools, the New Psychology and Dr. Jeanette


1. Exactly what is the New Psychology? 

The New Psychology is an alternative therapy approach that is holistic in nature. Holistic means you are viewed as a whole person, with mind, body and spirit. The New Psychology focuses on your strengths and shows you how to use them to become strong, creative, healthy and happy. The New Psychology does not give you a treatment and send you home. Instead, you learn how to find your own answers and trust your inner core. It is based on energy awareness, body awareness, healthy emotional expression and physical laws.

2.  How is the New Psychology different from talk therapy, Behavior Therapy, psychoanalysis, and other traditional psychological approaches? The old psychology is based on a medical model. The labels you receive are frequently based on judgmental beliefs about different cultures, lifestyles and gender. The New Psychology breaks free from these mental biases and offers you reliable learning research and safe, effective answers to real problems. Visit here for a complete holistic psychology definition.

3. How do I know the New Psychology Information is credible?

Dr. Doris Jeanette earned her doctor of psychology degree from Baylor University and completed a post doc from Temple Medical School with the eminent Dr. Joseph Wolpe in Behavior Therapy and Sex Therapy.  This means she is grounded in learning research and the traditional methods of psychological healing.

After her post doc, she immediately began to develop her own system of emotional health, mental health and whole body living. Opening her own heart and solar plexus catapulted her into new, emotional territory. For more details on how to open your heart.

In addition, Dr. Jeanette learned to read the different forms of energy she had been sensitive to as a child by working with master energy teachers such as Jack Swartz. She became an expert in body language and energy flow. Her unique contribution is discovering how people can access the vital energy in the heart and emotional body for health and vitality. Read more about Dr. Doris Jeanette and her professional vita.

4. How can I be sure the New Psychology will work for me?

You have to decide what works for you. Many people are not ready to be responsible for their own health and happiness. Not everyone is ready to go for the inner gold.

The goal of the New Psychology is to give you the tools and information you need to be the person you where born to be. Click here to read a description of the type of client who benefits from Dr. Jeanette's holistic psychology approach.

5. How do I get a degree in holistic psychology? Are there any schools that teach an alternative therapy?

If you land on a web site that says it is a holistic psychology school with a pop up window or google ads, keep looking.

At this moment there are no valid, trustworthy professional degrees in holistic psychology offered by a school which is accredited. What this means is if you want to be licensed by any state in the USA, you need to get a degree from a school that is accredited. Check with each school as their accreditation can change at any time.

The Center for New Psychology offers a Holistic Psychology Certification training program. This is a clinical program, not an academic program. Click here for information about holistic psychology education at the Center for New Psychology.

In addition, there are some schools which offer psychology programs that are more holistic and alternative than the traditional psychology schools.
