Meet Your Teacher

James S. Gordon, MD, is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist, former researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health, Chair of the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine Policy, and a clinical professor of Psychiatry and Family Medicine at Georgetown Medical School. He has authored or edited ten books, including Transforming Trauma: The Path to Hope and Healing. In 1991, Dr. Gordon founded The Center for Mind-Body Medicine, which has become a leader in addressing population-wide psychological trauma.

“Studies published in peer-reviewed journals repeatedly demonstrate that Dr. Gordon’s approach and techniques can decrease the numbers of those qualifying for the diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by 80% or more—in children, adolescents, and adults. Published research also demonstrates statistically significant decreases in depression, hopelessness, anxiety, anger, and sleep disturbance, and increases in quality of life.”

Course Outline

We recommend setting aside about 45 minutes for each day of the course. This includes a lesson, a healing practice, and reflective time to answer questions and complete the workbook.
