With over 150 medical references Functional Emotional Fitness™ represents a scientific breakthrough in mental health and it has done this without meds, labels or personal history. Kelly has accomplished this by defining ‘Normal’ in an industry, which only defines broken or disordered. Without a definition of “Normal,” virtually anyone on the planet is open to diagnosis of a disorder and subject to endless harmful medications.
With a focus on behavioral science for over thirty years, Kelly Burris, PhD is the author of ten books on human behavior with six of them exclusively dedicated to the participants of his Functional Emotional Fitness™ coach training program. Kelly is responsible for overseeing training and certification of all Burris Coaches and Master Coaches worldwide. His most recent book “Depression Anxiety and the Brain in Your Gut”, is the result of over 30 years of research and development of the empirically sound Functional Emotional Fitness™ Process.
Functional Emotional Fitness™ is a system to benchmark normal, as the first step to creating measurable change. Defining normal breaks the cycles of therapy and medication dependency and produces measurable progress to desired outcomes at every session.
Functional Emotional Fitness™ is the first step in positively directing our emotions to enable other modalities to work efficiently. If Emotional Fitness (mental health) is the objective, then Functional Emotional Fitness™ is the tool needed to accomplish this objective.
The Burris process has been used with exemplary results for MDD (major depressive disorder), PTSD, addiction, anorexia nervosa and co-occurring disorders.
