George Lindenfeld PhD
George Lindenfeld, Ph.D. specializes in the treatment of traumatic life experiences. He served in the Navy Seabees completing his Residency in Medical Psychology at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1971. He holds a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology awarded by the American Board of Professional Psychology in 1980. He has been certified in EEG Biofeedback by the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America and the Academy of Certified Neurotherapists. He has developed RESET Therapy, which has demonstrated rapid and enduring remission of the emotional aspects of PTSD. His intent in pioneering this intervention was to offer those veterans who continue to suffer from PTSD the promise of hope from a member of the healing profession! Dr. Lindenfeld does this in an effort to replace the erroneous belief that currently pervades many of our Veterans and professionals about PTSD being a lifelong psychic injury that cannot be healed. Trauma induced through Coronavirus among our First Responders can have similar effects to those encountered by combat-veterans. RESET offers the same remediative potential to this severely stressed population. Based upon five years of research including psychometric and qEEG brain map analyses, we postulate that chronic stress and trauma alters neuronal circuitry in the brain and body. Consequently, the modified circuit becomes stored in long-term memory in the Hippocampal brain region. For those with PTSD, a ‘top down – bottom-up’ cognitive change occurs wherein the individual shifts to a survival-based mode. In this model, executive functioning (Frontal Lobe) becomes secondary to instinctual reactivity. In the same manner, resilience is inversely affected and weakens accordingly. Selectively tuned in binaural sound has been found to be a key to unlock altered long-term stress/trauma memory resetting it to its prior state. RESET therapy is proving to be an effective, non-invasive intervention that restores resilience in both the mind and body. Research finding will be presented to support this conclusion.
