Breaking Barriers is a life skills, behavioral/cognitive change model based upon Cognitive Psychology and Social Learning Theory.
A Framework for Breaking Barriers: a Cognitive Reality Model is presented by trained facilitators certified by Instar Performance. The facilitator training is usually taught on-site, and must be conducted by a Master Facilitator from Instar Performance. The program is a workshop-oriented, application-driven process that offers both group work and individual exercises. Participants are provided with application guides, allowing the opportunity for review, reflection and long-term follow though.
The process consists of seventeen training modules. Each module builds on the previous lesson, reinforcing the application of the concepts and techniques presented. Personal accountability is the core principle that weaves the sessions together. The tools are new thinking skills, anchored to new ways to live, and new ways to deal with the challenge of personal change.
