Psychosocial Genomics theoretical foundations can be found in the integration of different disciplines and lines of research such as Psychology, Medicine, Biology and Neurosciences, in order to define a top-down approach to understand human nature. That can explain how mind and consciousness can communicate with the molecular-genomic basis of behavior to facilitate health and well-being.

Training Plan

Psychocial genomics training model is highly innovative and internationalized. It integrates the most accredited psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with the latest findings on brain and neuronal functioning with the aim to reduce the gap between research and clinical practice in the future psychotherapists.

International Training

A typical example of the type of education and professional training opportunities offered by Ernest and Kathryn Rossi is available to national and international individual and professional groups. They also work via Skype, Zoom and other mode of tele-communication.

Title: An Introduction to Psychosocial and Cultural Genomics: Facilitating the 4-Stage Cycle of Creative Consciousness for Resolving Stress-Related Problems of Anxiety and Depression in Everyday Life.

Why do we sleep and dream? Why have most cultures developed meditation, spiritual and holistic practices to facilitate health and well-being? Recent research has uncovered a profound yet sensible answer to these eternal questions. Sleep clears the mind by permitting 60% more cerebral spinal fluid to wash through the brain to remove toxic metabolic waste products of the daily wears and tears of life! (Xie, et al 2013, Underwood, 2013) We will explore how this research can help us understand the scientific dynamics of faith, belief, meditation and holistic practices of all cultures throughout the ages (Hadamard, 1945). We will share our dreams and early morning thoughts to facilitate our new growing edges of consciousness and creative cognition with this perspective. We will explore how to use the 4-stage creative cycle to optimize our health and happiness particularly during important life transitions (Rossi & Rossi, 2012). Very gentle practices of meditative yoga will be introduced so everyone can learn how to recognize their natural RNA/DNA psychosocial genomic transformations of therapeutic consciousness. This professional training is for psychologists, therapists and the general public interested in practical self-help techniques for coping with anxiety, depression and stress-related dysfunctions in everyday life.


1) Learn how to recognize the 4-Stage Creative Process as you experience it in your everyday life of work and play.
2) Learn how to recognize the natural Basic Rest-Activity Cycle (every 90-120 minutes) in your dreams and early morning thoughts to optimize your well-being throughout the day.
3) Practice practical techniques for coping with anxiety and depression by converting the Ultradian Stress Response to the Ultradian Healing Response in your everyday life.
4) Experience recent research on clearing the brain of metabolic toxins during normal sleep to optimize memory, learning and health.

CIPPS (International Center of Strategic Psychology and Psychotherapy) in Salerno, Italy ( is the first european center totally focused on the integration of the ericksonianan Therapeutical perspective with neuroscience and the Ernest Rossi Psychosocial and Cultural Genomics. The centre is characterized by training, research and clinical activities. The centre offers training courses about Rossi’s method for psychologists and medics such as: Full immersion one week basic training courses (40 hours) or advanced (80 hours) to learn how to use the method on a group setting; 3) Master course of 11 weekends; 4) Specialization school in strategic psychotherapy with a neuroscientific approach (4 years).
