The amazing work of Barry and Samahria Kaufman gives us the psychotherapeutic breakthrough we sorely need in this age of stress. I have been a family practitioner for thirty years, always with an understanding of mind-body interconnectiveness. I have searched and tried everything from Freud, Jung, Adler, Reich, Perls, Rogers, Maslow, Laing, Lowen, Maltz, Wemer, Huxley, May and a host of other schools of thought and therapy on my patients – trying to identify a system or process that would qualify as ‘mind treatment’ while I was treating their bodies. This is it! I have successfully integrated the Kaufmans’ teaching process as I understand it, with my usual treatment plans for Migraine, Backache, PMS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression, Asthma, Emphysema, Cancer, Colitis, Psoriasis, Physical Injuries, Eating Disorders, Smoking, Alcoholism, Resistant Obesity, Panic Attacks, Diabetes, Gout, Rheumatoid and Degenerative Arthritis, Agoraphobia, Writers Block, Nightmares, Alopecia Areata, Angina Pectoris and Hypercholesterolemia. The quick and dramatic therapeutic results I have been achieving, absolutely befuddle my imagination.
Anyone who experiences personal unhappiness can benefit. The individual learns to identify and question beliefs that lead to unhappiness and equally important, the individual learns how to allow happiness to intervene. It is a break-through that deserves to be explored by all healing professionals.
