Summary of Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D. & Sharon Begley's The Mind and the Brain - electronic bk

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 The book has a virtual third coauthor in Henry Stapp, whose research into the foundations of quantum mechanics provided the physics underpinning for JMS's theory of directed mental force. #2 The UCLA Department of Psychiatry holds grand rounds, at which an invited researcher presents an hour-long seminar on a topic of clinical relevance. One afternoon in the late 1980s, I saw an announcement that a leading behavior therapist was going to discuss her work with obsessive-compulsive disorder. #3 Exposure and response prevention, or ERP, was a perfect expression of behaviorist tenets. In ERP therapy, the patient is almost completely passive. The therapist presents them with triggers of varying intensity, and they have to rank the level of distress those objects cause. #4 I was becoming more and more convinced that a patient undergoing behavior therapy didn't need to do anything that a normal, healthy person would object to doing. I was beginning to suspect that the treatments based on the principles of behaviorism were missing the boat
