Ronn Young is currently a Clinical Counselor in Traumatology. Formerly a lecturer at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and former President, Founder, and CEO of the Havening Institute of Canada, Ronn has now semi-retired after 40 years in the compassion industry.
Ronn is processing an abstract for a book regarding the understanding of those dynamics in the construct of “shaming” within our current “cancel culture”, infiltrated by narcissism and ego-centricism. How does it impact the neural networks of the mind when it is no longer safe to be the authentic self?
Ronn serves those who have had a broken world experience to assist their ability to regroup and restructure the neural-networks which have been affected by shame-trauma and to encourage the development of post trauma growth paradigms.
As a guest lecturer in different parts of the world discussing the neuroscience techniques that bring healing to the infrastructure of brain networks, perceptions and constructs, Ronn has quietly removed himself from the “world stage” to focus on researching the effects of shame-trauma within the body/mind connection.
A Clinical Counselor uses established mental health principles, values and techniques to support someone to achieve insight into their challenges, developing efficient skills and capacities to restructure negative life patterns.
Clinical Counselling allows the authentic person beneath all the constructed layers to emerge and shine through a process of exploration, skill acquisition, emotional re-evaluation, and knowledge attainment. This process constructs new beliefs about self, others and life, which in turn, allows for new adaptive behaviors.
In effect, Ronn’s work involves:
- emotionally corrective experiences
- introspection to acquire insights
- the practice of new skills resulting in new behaviours and increased competence
- the acquisition of knowledge to generate empowerment
- listening, a multi-faceted approach that offers much more than ‘the ears’
In addition, Ronn is a certified Franklin Covey Life Coach.
Therapists analyze their client’s past as a tool to understanding present behaviours. Professional clinical life coaches us a variety of methods (ie. Socratic interrogatives) tailored to the client to move through the process of determining and achieving intrinsic life goals.
People need and want to be heard. Ronn offers comprehensive therapeutic listening in both counselling and life coaching. The client finds their own peace and empowerment to hearing their own voice of competence to “do life” successfully.
