Dedicated to the Permanent Healing of Emotional Trauma

Members of the helping professions including licensed social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, etc., will undoubtedly encounter clients/patients who are negatively impacted by the effects of emotional trauma. This may have occurred within a developmental period in life or within the context of natural or man-made events such as that which occur in a war zone, a natural disaster, a house fire, accident, attack or other traumatic life altering event. The nature of this impact and the variability of human response to traumatic events often present within the scope of practice of the aforementioned professionals.

As a matter of professional responsibility, the practitioner should be able to address a wide range of anticipated reactions that the client/patient may manifest. Furthermore, the impact on family systems and significant others needs to be understood as well. This course provides up-to-date information pertaining to the increasing utilization of

subcortical therapies such as RESET Therapy, EFT, EMDR, etc., in the treatment of PTSD. Furthermore, newly emerging treatments are focusing upon the effects that trauma has in its relationship to memory as opposed to anxiety (stress). This focus is intended to be utilized to enhance skill set development for professionals who are beginning their careers as well as those seasoned professionals who have engaged with their clients/patients throughout the years.

George Lindenfeld, Ph.D. is a Clinical Psychologist and founder of the RESET Therapy Professional Institute LLC located in Sarasota, Florida. He served in the Navy Seabees prior to attaining his doctorate in Child and Developmental Psychology at Utah State University in 1971. He completed his Residency in Medical Psychology at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1971, and holds a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology awarded by A.B.P.P., in 1980. He has been certified in EEG Biofeedback by BCIA and the Academy of Certified Neurotherapists. George has served as Director of the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at the Geisinger Medical Center, in Danville PA, Executive Director at the CMHC Center for Human Development in Grand Forks, ND, and Seminole County Mental Health Center in Altamonte Springs, FL. As part of his practice working with veterans, he has monitored ongoing memory research pursuing the application of non-invasive neuro-acoustical intervention. This has led to the development of RESET Therapy, which has demonstrated rapid and enduring remission of the emotional aspects of PTSD.

Furthermore, the history of the condition will be covered beginning with the earliest records found in historical documents. The varied terms used for this condition over the ages will be described. RESET Therapy will be described in detail with application provided to volunteer subjects.
