WHAT IS THE R.A.P. THERAPY?
R.A.P. is an eclectic approach to behavior modification. This form of therapy is existential in that incorporates spiritual principles, along with cognitive behavioral therapeutic applications. R.A.P. is designed to assist clients in realizing their true God-given potential. This behavioral modification approach has proven to be effective in self-empowerment and positive change.
R.A.P. is based on the premise that each individual is responsible for his or her actions. As a result, each person will ultimately be held responsible for the outcome of the choices that he or she makes. This is a simple concept; however, there are many people who fail to grasp this principle. Because of this, these individuals live their lives in an external locus of control, which means they allow outside circumstances to control them. R.A.P. teaches that we should live our lives from an internal locus of control, which means that we realize that we have the ability to overcome the circumstance in which we find ourselves. This mindset takes us from being victimized to becoming victorious. According to the Bible, God created mankind in His image and likeness and decreed that mankind would have dominion over the earth (Gen 1:27-28). If this is true, then it stands to reason that each individual has the ability to be in control over the circumstances in which they find themselves.
When the principles of responsibility, accountability, and purpose are inculcated into a persons cognitive processes an environment is created that empowers, motivates, and regulates ones behavior. This sense of empowerment is vital for an individual to take charge of his or her life. If you dont like where your life is at, then it time to use R.A.P.!
