Synopsis of Dr. Lieberman's Research

The research on Lifespring programs represents one of the most extensive bodies of scientific inquiry in the field of human development.

Lifespring has commissioned studies by independent research scientists widely respected for their work in human change and development, including: Morton Lieberman, Ph.D. of the University of California at San Francisco Medical School; Lee Ross, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Stanford University; Irvin Yalom, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University.

Over the last 35 years, Dr. Lieberman has produced landmark research in his field and has received the highly prestigious and coveted Research Scientist Award from the National Institute of Mental Health for seventeen years in a row. His research on Lifespring has been published in the Journal of the American Psychiatric Association.

The research on Lifespring focuses on the perceived value of our courses, risk assessment, issues analysis, and demographics of Lifespring participants.

Key findings of the studies show:

Participants experience significant and lasting changes in personal effectiveness, such as: lower job stress; increased self-confidence; higher self-esteem; a greater sense of being in control of life; a more positive and pleasurable range of events and experiences in life.

-Over half of participants felt that the Basic Training was one of the most valuable experiences they had ever had, and nearly nine out of ten (87%) felt it was at least of considerable value or more. Seventy-one percent of Advanced Course participants felt the Advanced Course was one of the most valuable experiences they had ever had, and fully 93% found it to be of considerable value or more.
-Nearly four out of five (79%) participants in both the Basic Training and Advanced Course stated that they received more value from the courses than they had expected.
-62% of participants believe the value of the Basic Training to be worth more than the actual cost, and 76% of Advanced Course students thought the same about that course.
-98% of the participants in the Basic Training found it to be interesting and enlightening.
-95% of participants in the Basic Training experienced enhanced feelings of responsibility and control.
-83% of Basic Training students intended to recommend Lifespring to others, and 92% of Advanced Course participants intended to recommend Lifespring to others.

There is no evidence that Lifespring causes psychiatric harm to participants, even participants who showed signs of vulnerability to harm prior to entering the training.
