Dr. Frank Lawlis
Diplomate in Counseling and Clinical Psychology
As I have read and re-read Dr. George Lindenfeld's book, it becomes very clear to me that this psychologist has immense empathy and caring for those veterans who have sought his assistance. His case studies were so compelling that I found it quite difficult to put down a particular passage until I completed reading the emotionally-charged material.
As the co-creator of the Bio-Acoustical Device (BAUD), along with my son, T. Frank Lawlis, it is my privilege to participate in the launching of this book. Furthermore, it is a joyous experience for me to experience the implementation of my professional efforts coming to a full fruition.
The case examples also validate my observations after personally administrating the BAUD protocols to over a thousand patients who have also derived positive and permanent benefits in short periods of time. Indeed, in this way Dr. Lindenfeld and I are kindred souls. This makes it doubly exciting that he is fully able to discern the full potential and power of the BAUD.
George has shared with me his struggles to find an effective means of placing PTSD into remission over the 45 years of his professional career. Like a bulldog, he has pursued this with a vengeance ultimately leading to the development of RESET Therapy. What is most revealing about this clinician's style is his intense dedication to the truth and willingness to share his findings candidly, fully and openly.
In his Memory & Reconsolidation chapter, he brilliantly connected the work of Dr. Joseph LeDoux related to memory reconsolidation, to that of my own efforts with neuro-modulation. This was the moment in time that created a full and complete understanding of how a binaural sound could alter the emotional aspect of a traumatic memory.
With the advent of brain-imaging and new neuro-assessment tools, we can now confidently declare that the brain continues to heal itself throughout our lifetime. "Neuroplasticity” (often referred to as psycho-neuro-plasticity when applied to psychological processes) is the ability of the brain to alter its circuits through training and focused intention.
People can learn to talk and walk again after brain injury because their neuronal circuits can detour neuronal signals through different circuits to enhance functioning. RESET Therapy uses this principle to rapidly restore the brain to its former level of health.
I consider ENDING THE NIGHTMARE OF POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER to be a bold new step through which Dr. George Lindenfeld has defined himself to be in the company of very courageous pioneers. Someone who shares his knowledge with others also identifies himself as a man who cares about others.
Thank you, George.
