  • 1. Congruence therapy<br />Dr. Bonnie Lee, Ph D.<br />

This model is focused on bringing about change at the level of being, as well as changes in doing, feelings and perceiving.

  • 9. Five circuits and recursive loop:<br />These are the circuits that will lead to a cyclic and recursive loop of recurrent reactions (chronic) <br />This system is and will:<br /><ul><li>A system that folds back upon itself
  • 10. Create a ‘self-similar cycle’ of interaction
  • 11. Function as a closed system
  • 12. Self-reinforcing
