EP90 IA17 - The Wave Nature of Consciousness: Creating a New Mind-Body Psychotherapy for the Future

Invited Address 17 from the Evolution of Psychotherapy 1990 - Session 7 - The Wave Nature of Consciousness: Creating a New Mind-Body Psychotherapy for the Future, featuring Ernest Rossi, PhD.

With discussant Carl Whitaker, MD.

Moderated by Betty Alice Erickson-Elliott, MS.



Evidence that the hourly and daily variations in our consciousness are related to the wavelike flow of messenger molecules operating on all levels from mind to gene will be reviewed. Stress, psychosomatic problems, and their resolution are a function of how we manage this wave nature of our consciousness. How do we create a new psychotherapy for the future that utilizes these natural windows of the mindbody?


Educational Objectives:

  1. To understand the wave nature of consciousness as a new common denominator between psychotherapy and the molecular biology of the gene
  2. To describe models we can use to guide the process of mind-body healing in psychotherapy right now
  3. To develop further prospects for learning how to maximize health with the wave nature of consciousness

Carl Whitaker, MD, was an American physician and psychotherapy pioneer family therapist. Whitaker is most well-known for acknowledging the role of the entire family in the therapeutic process. He is the founder of experiential family therapy, or the symbolic-experiential approach to therapy. Rather than scapegoating one family member or even a specific family problem, experiential family therapy looks at the entire family system. Several other approaches to family therapy have drawn heavily from Whitaker's theories.
