Synopsis and Key Points:
Robert A. Moylan, LCPC has discovered, through 20 years of psychology research, the simplest and most effective behavioral psychology approach.

Integral to the Emotional Core Therapy (ECT) approach is to learn to have a relaxed, daydreaming, meditative lifestyle, similar to what psychologists call mindfulness.
Counselor Robert A. Moylan, LCPC has discovered, through 20 years of psychology research, the simplest and most effective behavioral psychology approach currently available in the world to treat most relationship stress, including eating disorders, addictions, depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, marital discord, sports psychology and personality disorders. His book for adults, "Emotional Core Therapy," was the top-rated book on Amazon.com in 2014 in two categories: "Mental Health" and "Emotions."
With Emotional Core Therapy (ECT), Mr. Moylan has discovered the root cause of psychological stress. He has also produced the only psychological approach in the world that accurately and successfully treats the root cause of relationship stress.
Up until now, the vast majority of therapists, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, ministers, monks, priests, and coaches have been relying on psychology techniques/approaches such as REBT, CBT, DBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Positive Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Motivational Interviewing, Positive Psychology, 12 Steps, even religious teachings such as Buddhism and Christianity to heal people.
ECT uses some of the same teachings as all of the above approaches (along with Moylan's own research and findings) but has condensed the process to eight steps.
His discovery is so simple you only need a ninth or tenth grade reading level for the adult book. Sixth graders can read his teen books. Non-readers can also learn ECT if they can be taught the process. With ECT, there is renewed hope that addictions and mental health issues can be treated more effectively throughout the world.
This is a landmark day in the field of psychology according to Mr. Moylan, because we now have an effective psychology tool to treat all current psychological disorders where the patient has not suffered permanent physical or psychological damage.
According to Moylan, ECT can help anyone, even those without a psychological diagnosis.
ECT teaches you how to have inner peace and happiness. A goal for nearly all humans.
The root cause of stress is entering and leaving relationships that require needs to be met. We sense this stress through our five senses and cause one of four feelings to arise. Those four feelings are joy, grief, fear, and relief.
All relationship stress in existence (for example, binge eating, addiction to cocaine, financial loss in stock market, spousal abuse, parenting a disruptive teen, missing a free throw in basketball, death of a loved one, throwing out your back lifting a baby, celebrating a birthday, etc.) can be traced back to one of the four feelings. These four feelings alter the central nervous system, thus causing stress to humans. The key is to learn to identify, process, and release these four feelings as they are with us hourly and daily. These four feelings are temporary but (grief and fear )can be debilitating from time to time.
Integral to the ECT approach is to learn to have a relaxed, daydreaming, meditative lifestyle, similar to what psychologists call mindfulness. Then, once these four feelings come, one must cathartically release them. One can handle almost any future relationship stress, once the eight step ECT Flowchart is learned and applied.
The field of psychology has never had a psychological process that can claim these results. ECT can help improve the quality of life for millions of people.
If someone uses and applies ECT to their daily lives, they have the full confidence they can handle almost any future stress that arises in their lives.
