)-- Jeanine Joy, the Founder and CEO of Happiness 1st Institute, has extended her research into applying The Smart Way meta-cognitive processes and emotional guidance to the problem of crime. Criminology research supports her position that by changing the underlying psychology to healthier states, an individual is far less likely to participate in criminal activities and more resistant to behaviors that can lead to crime, such as alcohol and drug abuse, and prematurely ending formal education.
Recent research in the field of emotions has revealed that the scientific hypothesis relied upon for the past 80 years was wrong. Most people who are alive today were taught the old theory about emotions either formally or by parents, teachers, and clergy who were misled into believing the misguided hypothesis. This leads to misinterpretations of what emotions mean that significantly increases stress every day. This misinterpretation of emotions frequently leads to failed relationships and bad decisions in every area of life.
When the real meaning of your emotions is understood you feel more empowered, confident and able to solve any problems life throws your way. The science leading to Ms. Joy's conclusion is documented in her latest book, "Is Punishment Ethical? The Fallacy of Good and Evil," which is available from major booksellers. Happiness 1st Institute offers programs to companies, schools, individuals and organizations teaching the meta-cognitive skills and correct use of emotions.
The cost-benefit equation of teaching our young and as many adults as possible on a society-wide basis these skills and is compelling. But individuals and organizations don't have to wait for everyone to learn them before they can personally benefit.
