Dr. Rossman to discuss 'The Healing Mind' live on AETN

Posted 28 Nov 2016

Dr. Martin Rossman will be live in the Arkansas Educational Television Network studios Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. for the broadcast of 'The Healing Mind.'

At one time, there was a legitimate use for the fight-or-flight instinct, but what was once a matter of survival has now become the stuff of sleepless nights and anxious days. At its best worry provides a way to solve a problem in one's mind, but for many it becomes a cycle of unnecessary suffering.

Based on cutting-edge brain science, Rossman has developed a program to help break the worry cycle – and transform worry into a positive force – with a plan for taking control of reactions to stress and anxiety.

Using proven clinical techniques, 'The Healing Mind' reveals the five basic skills that will help clarify worries, sort them by things that can be dealt with and those that can't, and tap the wisdom buried deep within to help solve problems creatively. 

At the heart of the program is the use of guided imagery and creative visualization, techniques that invigorate the emotional and intuitive parts of the brain to add to and enhance logical intelligence.

Physician, author, speaker and researcher Dr. Martin Rossman founded 'The Healing Mind' to raise awareness about the power of high-quality mind/body tools in self-healing and in the health professions. A graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School in 1969, he has had a long-standing interest in the practical importance of attitudes, beliefs, emotions and mind/body practices in medicine and health. In addition to a busy practice emphasizing non-drug medicine and patient participation, he has taught clinical guided imagery to over 10,000 health professionals since 1982.
