[We are grateful to Dr. Tom Kelley and Dr. Jack Pransky for permission to share this important announcement with you. We are also appreciative of Three Principles Global Community (3PGC) who first released this announcement and established the detailed research page on its website.]
Center for Sustainable Change is excited to announce a major breakthrough in Three Principles research. Three studies offering empirical support for the path from Three Principles exposure to improved mental health proposed by Dr. Thomas Kelley and Dr. Jack Pransky have been accepted for publication in highly respected academic journals!
The first article, entitled "Realizing Improved Mental Health through Understanding Three Spiritual Principles," has been accepted for publication in the American Psychological Association (APA) sponsored Journal of Spirituality in Clinical Practice.
The second and third articles, entitled "Understanding Spiritual Principles or Using Techniques to Realize and Sustain Optimal Mental Health," and "Inside-Out or Outside In: Understanding Spiritual Principles or Depending on Techniques to Realize Improved Mindfulness/Mental Health," have both been accepted for publication in the Journal of Spirituality in Mental Health.
Everyone in CSC's network congratulates Tom and Jack on their fabulous work and this breakthrough in research.
CSC Collaborates in Three Principles Research
We are especially pleased to have collaboratively developed with Dr. Kelley the research measurement instruments for and to be the provider of the settings for the following two of the "in progress" research programs referred to in the 3PGC research webpage article:
- Kelley, T. M., Pettit, W. F., Sedgeman, J., & Pransky, J. "The Efficacy of the Three Principles Intervention with Returning Veterans Diagnosed with PTSD." (A preliminary pilot study and follow-up controlled study)
- Kelley, T. M. "The Efficacy of the Three Principles Intervention with At-Risk Youth."
CSC has collaboratively developed with Dr. Kelley the research instruments that will be utilized in our "THRIVING vs Surviving" and "Coming Home To Peace" programs for veterans -- young veterans or veterans with children and youth in their homes who are suffering from PTSD. Dr. Bill Pettit is serving as the lead investigator in this research with Dr. Judith Sedgeman and Dr. Thomas Kelley completing the investigative research team. Dr. Pettit is applying to the Institutional Review Board at Siena Heights University for an IRB approval for the research pilot program, "THRIVING vs Surviving." Dr. Kelley and his research analysis team at Wayne State University will be processing all data received from the program. Similar IRB approval and research protocols will be established for our follow-up residential program, "Coming Home To Peace."
CSC has also collaboratively developed with Dr. Kelley the research instruments that will be utilized in a number of our "Community Program Collaborations" which will focus on introducing the Three Principles to youth -- particularly "at-risk" youth. Again Dr. Kelley and his research analysis team at Wayne State University will be processing all data received from these programs.
