Networking, and the exchange of information about new applications of suggestion and hypnosis.
I originated the "Best Me" technique of multimodal suggestion for involving one's whole person in the content of a suggested event, and I was the first to formally identify the process of hyperempiria, or the suggestion-based enhancement of experience, as a catalyst for growth and change
My Vita is posted as a stand-alone page on the upper right-hand column of my Web site at www.hyperempiria.com. These things always read like an obituary, so here's a summary in a nutshell. My doctorate is in general experimental psychology. or the study of how to design and conduct well-controlled, repeatable psychological experiments. I have written books, presented professional papers, and taught psychology at both the graduate and undergraduate level. I am currently a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in New Jersey. The scientific perception of reality is always subject to change as new information emerges, and this is what interests me the most. I presented a paper at the American Psychological Association in which I proposed an alternative paradigm for hypnosis. From this point of view, hypnosis is an artistic medium which enables us to work directly with the ultimate art form, human experience itself. This paper is also available as a stand-alone page in the upper right-hand column of my Blog; and many of the Blog postings are dedicated to the application and development of this concept.
Writing, research, and working with clients for the enhancement of human potential, the ennoblement of the human spirit, and the fulfillment of human existence.
