Hello, I am
Al Barrios, founder and director of the
Self-Programmed Control (SPC)
Center in Los Angeles. Our mission is to provide products and
services aimed at giving people greater control over their lives
and thus allowing them to achieve greater health, happiness, and
fulfillment in life.
SPC provides a series of simple, step-by-step mind focusing techniques
that allow individuals to reprogram any behavior they wish to change.
The SPC approach has been tested successfully with employees at many
organizations including Rockwell, Mead Johnson and UCLA.
The main advantages of the SPC approach are immediate feedback
and positive results which guarantee continued practice of the
new behavior until it becomes second nature.
Here are a number of resources an individual can use to learn various
aspects of the SPC approach:
The book Towards Greater Freedom & Happiness
has the most detailed presentation of the SPC program, including
positive results already achieved in education, industry and medicine.
The Stress Control Biofeedback Card with Handbook
when the goal is primarily stress management.
The Habit Buster Biofeedback Card with Handbook
when the goal is primarily habit or addiction control (smoking, drugs,
alcohol and overeating).
SPC Workshops & Seminars
for corporate, government and community groups.
I invite you to learn more about the SPC Program, and our
Products & Services. We are available by phone or e-mail
to answer any questions, or to provide additional information.
