This web site is for professionals
wanting to develop or sharpen their skills in dealing with clients
anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia
and phobias. This technique is
strictly educational in nature as anxiety and panic attacks are strictly
a disease of ignorance! Now that's a pretty bold statement. And
considering it comes from a chemical engineer instead of a psychiatrist
or psychologist, it may seem even more far fetched.
I discovered this
in the middle eighties. As with most clinicians it was easy for me to
remember the successes. But in reality there were many clients who only
came a few sessions, disappeared, never to be heard from again. What
about them? Were they successful? It’s this latter group that's often
forgotten by most clinicians. They never get figured into the true
percentages of success or failure.
But what about the other four dozen
clients that I didn't get an opportunity to get feedback? Certainly the
approach that I was using was different than anything I had seen in the
literature or any technique that I had ever found in books and cassette
tapes being sold to clinicians and professional conferences. But did
that make a difference in the percentages?
To learn the truth, I did what few
clinicians do -- I created a survey and mailed it to everyone that I had
seen or worked with over a six-year period who had suffered from phobias,
anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, or associative depression. When I
tabulated the results, I was
truly amazed at the incredibly high success rates.
This web site is about the study of the
results of the survey. It is primarily a resource for clinicians and
therapists who would like to "step outside the box" and hone
their skills so as to improve their success rate with clients suffering
from these maladies.
The cassette tapes offered are available
for sale through this web site. However, if you are a sufferer from
anyone of these maladies, I suggest that you use the content given in the
cassette tapes to guide your counseling and therapy.
Most clients believe it up to the therapist to guide the therapy. It
seems natural because after all the therapists is the person who is
supposed to know how to get you from where you are to where you want to be
-- free of anxiety. So a typical sessions runs something like this...
"How's your week?"
"I had a terrible time when I went
to the store yesterday."
"What do you think caused
"I don't know!"
The therapist then delves into the
significance of the store and the intensity of the anxiety in an attempt
to see where you made a mistake in applying his behavioral approach. The
result is that the session is "off and running," on some
insignificant issue and ends up being a waste of time, money and skill
on the part of the therapist.
It's not expected that the cassette tapes or CD's offered on this site
will free you of anxiety and depression without a therapist, it could
happen. A more practical view would be to listen
to the cassettes, see how the information applies to you, and use it as
a guide in your sessions with your therapists. You should be the person
directing the therapy -- not the therapists.
Of course, if you are the therapist, then
these programs will allow you to direct your clients through the issues
that are pertinent when dealing with anxiety and depression.
I promise that the approach is radically
different than anything you've used or seen before and your results will
improve. However, once you've gone through the essence of
it, you’ll wonder, "Why didn't I think of that? It makes perfect
sense." And that's what this approach is about -- logic. Pure and
simple logic. No need to analyze one's relationship with his mother, his
father, and so on. No need to go back in time and waste time talking
about embarrassing situations or relationships, analyze
dreams, and so on.
Instead it’s more important for your
clients to learn to effectively deal with disappointment and learn how
to "observe" instead of coming to medical conclusions about physical
feelings that are unfounded and untrue. This indeed is the essence of
the training and it can take a client as little as one session to
accomplish this goal or as long as two-to-three months.
And this is what this training is about;
guiding you, the therapists, so that you may guide your clients to freedom
from anxiety and depression. It is totally educational and
non-therapeutic, unless of course you call a gentle backrub therapeutic
-- it certainly feels good but you don’t have to look at what makes
you tick to feel good. Likewise, your clients won’t have to look at
what makes them tick in order to feel good and free themselves from
