When a person is getting their innate physical and emotional needs met in a balanced way they will be mentally healthy (unless they are also traumatised or brain damaged in some way). Scientists and psychologists have identified the fundamental givens of human nature which everyone needs to have satisfied in their life if they wish to function well.
The Emotional Needs Audit is a simple diagnostic questionnaire developed by the HGI, which is proving an invaluable tool as it rapidly shows where the potential problems in somone's life might lie.
When a human givens therapist helps a person to overcome distress, they focus on helping the person to get their essential emotional needs met, authentically and in balance, rather than on giving attention to psychological symptoms. Interestingly, when the patient's emotional needs are attended to their presenting problem often falls away by itself, and unexplained physical symptoms sometimes resolve as well.
An increasing number of doctors now use the Emotional Needs Audit form with both their patients and staff.
