SCHOLARLY/RESEARCH INTERESTS

•   Mystical and spiritual views of human consciousness, the process of self realization, the multi-dimensional nature of reality, explorations of creation dynamics, the physics and metaphysics of human consciousness.

•   Forensic psychology and correctional work: Work with the M.M.P.I. and the M.M.P.I.- A, and the classification of young offenders. Interests in the psychopathy construct, criminal typology, sex offender treatment, the D. S. M. and L S I, and recidivism studies.

CLINICAL ORIENTATION

•   I have over thirty years experience as an individual and group therapist. Along more traditional lines, I have knowledge and experience with cognitive and behavioural approaches; methods of relaxation and anger/stress/anxiety management; addictions counselling; the use of breath work and awareness exercises; and active short term psychotherapy. In addition, I have been influenced by a wide range of non-traditional, growth oriented mystical and spiritual psychologies. I employ original self study methods in my work –particularly the use of self-remembering and breath work to enhance the life of the soul.

•   I have developed a unique approach to offender rehabilitation based on consciousness studies and mystical/spiritual investigations. In contrast to traditional cognitive-behavioural approaches, I emphasize the awakening of consciousness and the heart. The program philosophy is brought into materials dealing with substance abuse, anger and stress management, and lifestyles. Offenders in the “Awareness, Freedom and Choices”program, learn a method of self study and self remembering, in order to de-automatize habits of thinking, feeling and action which compose their false personality. Participants are encouraged to “wake up,” to take a broad overview of their life course, to develop awareness of their patterns of negative emotions and self-centeredness, to experience remorse and the awakening of conscience. The aim is presented of struggling to get back to one’s essence and attain real ‘I.’  The primary thrust is towards the awakening of consciousness and the heart through the process of self-remembering.
