Based on the premise that all people are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole, and have the ability to self-heal, RIM® is a technique that helps turn on a client’s emotional operating system so that old stuck emotional memories can flow through them. RIM® is a closed-eye, verbal, and whole brain and body transformational tool that quickly and easily releases negative emotional memories and regenerates them into positive ones. During this presentation, participants will explore how well RIM® can be used as an adjunct tool for their practice as a coach, social worker, therapist, counselor, teacher, nurse, or other helping professional. This presentation is designed to be experiential in nature so participants will learn through a personal experience.

Michael Kline is an expert on success and emotions. He is the 11th of 12 children born into poverty to an abusive alcoholic father, living in junkyard. Kline lost his mother at age seven and discovered powerful lessons about life, love, and human potential. His journey from the junkyard is proof of what is possible for anyone. Driven by the conviction that it is never too late to have a happy childhood or adulthood, Kline has invested thousands of hours performing RIM® sessions and training others to use RIM® as an advanced emotional healing technique. Kline delivers nearly 100 webinars every year and over 200 hours of in-person RIM® training. As a Master Certified RIM® Facilitator and Trainer, his area of focus is using RIM® to help clients release stored body memory and trauma for self-healing.  

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to explain a person’s organic Emotional Operating System (EOS) and how it allows negative emotions to dissolve naturally.
  • Participants will be able to facilitate a process to experience their intangible feelings as tangible events that are safe, manageable, and able to be processed.
  • Participants will be able to explain how RIM® resolves the negative emotional effects of trauma and how this reduces one’s risk for developing SUD or experiencing a relapse.
Content Level

All levels.

  • Beginning level courses introduce learners to a content area; include information about a condition, treatment method, or issue; and involve learning and comprehending content.
  • Intermediate level courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.
  • Advanced level courses provide content for participants who have been working in the content area and have a clear understanding of the issues. These courses cover and address the complexities involved in the work and involve synthesizing material to create new patterns or structures or evaluating material for a specific purpose.
