Robert F. Mullen

Robert F. Mullen is director of ReChanneling Inc, dedicated to researching methods to (1) alleviate symptoms of dysfunction (disorder) and discomfort (neurosis) that impact an individual’s emotional wellbeing and quality of life, (2) pursue personal goals and objectives—eliminating a bad habit, self-transformation—harnessing our intrinsic aptitude for extraordinary living. Dr. Mullen facilitates seminars and workshops on dysfunction and empowerment, currently providing support for a group of 660+ individuals with social anxiety disorder. The overarching objective of his methodology is rechanneling negative self-beliefs into positive and life-affirming ones. A published worldwide academic author, Mullen is the pioneer of proactive neuroplasticity utilizing DRNI—deliberate, repetitive, neural information. His academic disciplines include contemporary behavior, modified psychobiography, and positive psychologies, and he has the unique combination of his own social anxiety experiences to support his professional conclusions.

Dr. Mullen’s paradigmatic approach targets the personality through empathy, collaboration, and program integration utilizing an integration of science and east-west psychologies. Science gives us proactive neuroplasticity; CBT and positive psychologies are western-oriented; eastern practice provides the therapeutic aspects of Abhidharma psychology and the overarching truths of ethical behavior. Proactive neuroplasticity enables us to take control, rechanneling our inherent negative self-beliefs towards healthy, productive, self-fulfilling lives.

Mindful that recovery remission, as well as goals and objectives, are not achieved by focusing on deficits and weakness, he emphasizes the positivity of our strengths, virtues, and attributes, targeting the personality through empathy, collaboration, and integration of historically and clinically practical methods.

Michael Z. – “I have lived with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) for as long as I can remember. It has overwhelmed me many times throughout my life, especially in avoiding crowds of people such as meet ‘n greets, conferences, picnics in the park, etc. I have always made the excuse that I cannot attend an event because my SAD would go into overdrive, fearing the upcoming event, always feeling “less” than others that will be there … Our recovery group focuses on neuroplasticity (reprogramming the brain). The work brings up a lot of SAD feelings about the past and present. There are several straightforward assignments to complete while in recovery. It’s amazing what feelings come up when I’m assigned these exercises.”

Matty S. – “It doesn’t come easy. Having the tools is just the start. Really understanding them all is still a challenge and the constant, long-term repetitiveness of DRNI is brutal. I’m not perfect by any means and I fall back a lot. I remember you said to consider projected failure as a process of learning, and setbacks are only possible with progress. Life is much better. I came into the program registering about a 9 out of 10 on the Richter scale of anxiety and depression. I’m now between 3 and 5 and working to get even more in control. I would give the practicum the most credit, but it taught me that I’m the captain of my ship, so I take credit and pride for hanging in there …

Jose Garcia Silva, Ph.D. – “I have never encountered such an efficient professional … His work transpires dedication, care, and love for what he does.” 

Leon V. I love his classes because the only pressure comes from within, not from the instructor, who clearly loves and knows what he is doing.

Janice Parker, Ph.D. – “I am simply in awe at the writing, an individual’s insights, an individual’s deep knowing of transcendence, an individual’s intuitive understanding of psychic-physical pain, an individual’s connection of the pain to healing, an individual’s concept/title, and above all, an individual’s innate compassion…”

David C.  “I’ve been unhappy and angry for as long as I can remember.  I hated my life and I was unhappy at work. I didn’t have anyone to confide in. When you kept pushing that cognitive stuff I was ready to walk, but you persuaded me that that was my social anxiety looking for an excuse to quit on myself. I don’t do as much of the positive repetitions as I should, but I do see the light at the end of the tunnel and that’s something I didn’t have before you. As far as I concerned, that pretty much says it all.”    

Jordan L. –  “Wow!  That is a very powerful article.  It appears that a large portion of Social Anxiety centers around forgiveness:  Others who have hurt me; me hurting myself; and me hurting others.  I have forgiven my parents, though their negative tapes still play in my head at times.  It seems like an ongoing work-in-process forgiving myself.  I still have a way to go there.

Reverend Richard Carlini  – “Dr. Mullen hits the nail on the head with ReChanneling. Charles Fillmore, co-founder of the Unity Movement said, “Every thought clothes itself in a life form according to the character of the thinker. The form is simply the correlation of the thought.”  ReChanneling gives us a clear method of changing the clothes a particular thought is weaving.”                                                                           

Why is your support essential? ReChanneling is dedicated to research and development of methods to alleviate symptoms of psychological dysfunction and discomfort. Our vision is to reshape the current pathographic emphasis on diagnoses over individual, which fosters a deficit, disease model of human behavior. Treatment programs must disavow ineffective, one-size-fits-all approaches and target the individual personality through communication, empathy, collaboration, and an integration of historically and clinically practical methods. All donations support scholarships for workshops and practicums.
