Richard Bandler and John Grinder gave a workshop back in 1977 in New Orleans which I attended and what I learned from them through their books and workshops has changed my life. They went on to found the field of Neurolinguistic Programming [tm] and to influence the way therapists looked at their world forever.

On this links page I have endeavored to give you, dear Reader, a handy reference to the various books I have reviewed which impinge upon Bandler and Grinder's innovative work in the field of Neurolinguistic Programming [tm]. A look at the list of books and authors on this page will give you a sense of the importance of their work in our time. Building on the pioneering work of Virginia Satir, Gregory Bateson, Milton Erickson, and other, they taught us all to accept the fact that we are modelers of reality and to not take life too seriously that even psychotherapy can be fun if you have the tools to make deep pervasive changes at your disposal.

35. Curing a Veteran of her Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome
              A 14-minute Video Clip by Steve Andreas

What Steve Andreas does in this movie clip looks like some reframing and hints of various NLP processes of dissociation thrown in. The clip is condensed from some 16 HOURS of work, showing two followup sessions.

This work is important because it proves that PTSD can be eliminated by taking a person back before the traumatic events. That confirms my research which suggests the symptoms of PTSD result from the overload of the hippocampus by glutocorticoids during a traumatic event which prevents the hippocampus from transmitting declarative memory (aka cognitive memory) of the event to the cortex.

This can be viewed as a temporary reversion to one's time below five-years old, when one's hippocampus had not come "on-line" and thus was unable to transfer events to the cortex. Instead it stored all events as bodily states and few or no images of the events were stored (thus: no cognitive memory).

This indicates to me that one should be able, without a therapist present, to quickly and easily remove PSTD events by a Speed Trace in a few minutes instead of many hours. It may take longer than a few minutes if a therapist is required to lead the woman, e.g., through her first Speed Trace, ensuring that she HOLDS the physical body states as she goes down her TIME MARKS.

In other words, Steve Andreas has proven that PTSD is caused by the storage of anchors or doyles (physical body states) during trauma. From that data I aver that any psychotherapeutic process that meets the Speed Trace requirements of HOLD and MARK will prove successful in alleviating the flashbacks (caused by flash-bulb bleed-through of cognitive memories to the cortex during the trauma) and onerous body states such as full-body sweats, pulse rate elevation, and hair-trigger responses to non-threatening events, among other things.
