Sarasota, FL, January 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Local neuropsychologist Dr. George Lindenfeld has spearheaded the development of a new, remarkably effective treatment for PTSD and is seeking select veterans for a future study that will provide treatment for their symptoms and include fMRI imaging to record brain changes.
Lindenfeld has recently retired from private practice to pursue this research, and has relocated to Sarasota from Asheville, NC. He has more than 45 years of clinical experience specializing in the treatment of trauma, specifically Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
His new treatment is based on a unique application of the latest discoveries in neuroscience and memory reconsolidation. Called RESET Therapy (Reconsolidation Enhancement by Stimulation of Emotional Triggers), relief is often obtained in just one to two treatment sessions. RESET Therapy uses specific therapy techniques combined with acoustical neuromodulation, provided by a device from Insight NeuroSystems, to "reset" fear circuits in the brain back to pre-trauma levels.
This treatment is especially important, according to Lindenfeld, because current treatment methods are largely ineffective. Doctor Charles Marmar, chairman of psychiatry at NYU Langone Medical Center and director of the NYU Veterans Center was recently quoted in the New York Times, saying, "A significant number of veterans are going to have PTSD for a lifetime unless we do something radically different."
Dr. Lindenfeld has personally treated well over 100 patients with this procedure using RESET therapy. Worldwide, many thousands of trauma patients have benefited from this same method. In his practice, Lindenfeld has achieved remission - complete relief of PTSD symptoms in every case - even with PTSD symptoms dating back decades to the Vietnam war.
This safe, simple therapy procedure has also been used in 18 countries over the last 10 years for hard to treat conditions like depression, addiction and chronic pain.
Lindenfeld is currently seeking to present his findings to organizations interested in veteran and civilian trauma recovery. He is author of a paper scheduled for publication by the International Society of Neurofeedback Research (ISNR) in the Spring of 2015, entitled “Resetting the Fear Switch in PTSD: A Novel Treatment Using Acoustical Neuromodulation to Modify Memory Reconsolidation,” and of the forthcoming book "I Fix PTSD & So Can You - A Healers Guide."

About Dr. Lindnefeld:
George Lindenfeld, PhD is a Neuropsychologist and founder of the Medical Psychology Center in Asheville, NC, which specializes in the evaluation and treatment of traumatic life experiences. He served in the Navy Seabees prior to attaining his doctorate in Child and Developmental Psychology at Utah State University in 1971. He completed his Residency in Medical Psychology at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1971, and holds a Diplomate in Clinical Psychology awarded by A.B.P.P., in 1980. George has served as Director of the Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at the Geisinger Medical Center, in Danville PA; Executive Director at the CMHC Center for Human Development in Grand Forks, ND, and Seminole County Mental Health Center in Altamonte Springs, FL. In his practice working with veterans, he has monitored ongoing memory research and pioneered the application of non-invasive potential of neuro-acoustical intervention. This has led to the development of RESET Therapy, which has demonstrated rapid and enduring remission of the emotional aspects of PTSD. George may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
