Online Emotional Education Programs

The Museum of the Creative Process features two online programs of emotional education. 


 Complete Conflict Analysis Battery



Brief Self Assessment 

The full program is available here for $25: 

The full program includes a detailed introduction, a thorough analysis of your relational styles and modes of resolving conflict, as well as ten creativity-based exercises with extensive personal feedback, and guided next steps. 

The brief program is available  FREE OF CHARGE HERE:

The brief program includes a personality inventory identifying your relational modality, your wellness personality type, and one metaphor creation exercise which illustrates how the relational pattern unfolds as an emotional chain reaction providing insights. The testing generates a report with recommendations for power management changes to optimize resolutions. 


The Conflict Analysis Battery helps people become conscious of their unconscious. Founded on the scientific interpretation of metaphors, The Conflict Analysis Battery is a theory-based assessment; it measures the unconscious process by using two complementary instruments, an inventory and a set of creative exercises. The battery’s personality inventory measures formal relational dimensions and the degree of psychic tension. The battery’s creativity exercises identify the syndromal unfolding of clients' unconscious process, illustrating how people predictably evolve from a conflict, the stress state, to its resolution, the compromise state.

Insights are generated throughout the process of completing the Conflict Analysis Battery and reinforced by the responsive online program, allowing users real-time feedback about their personal patterns. While interpretation by therapists is useful to help deepen impact, the program is designed to be used both in conjunction and independent of traditional therapy. The Conflict Analysis Battery helps clients assume responsibility for their behavior, allowing them insight into their behavioral patterns and the skills to positively change their lives. 



The Formal Theory’s conceptualization of the unconscious introduced a purely natural science, formal relational mechanism with a moral or conflict resolution adjustive function. The Formal Theory’s conceptualization of the unconscious introduced two purely natural science, mechanisms with a moral or conflict resolution adjustive function. The unconscious then is measurable as two natural science phenomena: these are the formal relational equilibrial balance of the trays of a scale and the energetic oscillations of a pendulum ball. These mechanical equivalents give to the creative process their scientific dimensions with their constructs and formulas. The mental order then becomes measurable like any physical entity that has both formal and physical energetic emotional dimensions. The assessment measures these dimensions.


The object for the scientific study of behavior has been identified clearly by the Formal Theory as the creative process as a periodic conflict resolution phenomenon that has formal and physical dimensions. The conflict-resolving unconscious is an equilibrial system of formally interrelated emotions that upgrade order. Emotions represent real energetic physical entities. The conflict resolution process is the unit order of the social sciences, a periodic formal and energetic transformation that leads to a desirable conclusion, an emotional outcome representing the unconscious in action. 

In contrast to widely used assessment instruments, the CAB is a theory based self-assessment. Unlike other tests, it is not just a personality inventory but a combination of an inventory and projective tasks measuring the well defined unconscious as relational modalities and their syndromal unfolding manifested as the orderly six-role states bound into a dramatic continuum. The assessment is educational on the scientific nature of the unconscious, it is diagnostic measuring the relational modality and it is therapeutic guiding the test taker to identify one's six-role process generating insights and emotional changes.

The assessment is cognitive, diagnostic and therapeutic; it is both an intellectual and an emotional experience. The assessment validates demonstrates the personal relevance of the concepts as test takers benefit emotionally from the assessment.  The inventory is diagnostic. The observer or test taker can at a glance identify one’s relational modality diagnosis. The inventory also measures psychic tension identifying the degree of illness. The projective metaphor construction tasks are therapeutic. The  relational modality diagnosis is illustrated by the metaphors and the metaphors elicit relational cathartic emotional experiences leading to behavioral changes. The combination of cognitive information, self-discovery, and observation of relational differences compound the educational and therapeutic value of the assessment. The outcome of the testing is a therapeutic emotional learning experience preparing a person for any further educational or therapeutic work.

Current psychological diagnostic instruments identify traits; they are in no way evoking a cathartic emotional experience. They do not explain diagnostically the psychodynamic development of symptoms nor serve a therapeutic healing service to the test taker. The CAB identifies patterns but also generates insights and directives for changes. The focus on traits as five unrelated factors of personality, held together with acronyms is of no psychodynamic diagnostic and therapeutic value. The acronym OCEAN corresponds to five factors as unrelated traits: Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. DiSC is the acronym of another valuable inventory: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Conscientiousness. In contrast to those the CAB's inventory identifies relational modalities based on three dichotomies of formally interrelated states: passivity versus activity, cooperation versus antagonism alienation versus mutual respect.

The Conflict Analysis Battery's inventory identifies four relational modalities. The three formal dichotomies identify four formally interrelated conflict resolution alternatives: the  relational modalities, diagnostic categories of wellness, and the psychic tension corresponding to intensity of conflicts identifying psychopathology as qualification of wellness. The Battery combines the inventory with a set of ten creativity tasks, leading to the reconstruction of the six-role state psychodynamically related emotions and behaviors, the emotional chain reaction of the conflict resolution unconscious.
