    Here's a copy of what I take to be a TMS meet-up in NYC I just received, they are Sarno-esque psychologists and have a recent book out. If someone could translate this into English it would be greatly appreciated.



    This symposium is sponsored by the Clinic of the Postdoctoral Program. The aims of the Clinic Symposium are to enhance clinical understanding and promote psychoanalytic education.

    Increased Affect Tolerance

    Graduate, NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis;
    Co-Author (with Frances Sommer Anderson) of Pathways to pain Relief (2013);
    Independent practice, NYC.

    2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    240 Greene Street
    3rd Floor Conference Room
    New York, NY 10003

    From the presenter:
    For many psychoanalytically-oriented clinicians treating patients with psychophysiologic pain disorders, uncovering repressed rage has become the holy grail. Using case material, I will demonstrate how for many patients, helping them increase their affect tolerance is a more effective approach with respect to resolving their pain symptomatology.

    I certainly agree that repressed rage causes physical pain. I stopped having severe back pain after
    learning about Dr. John Sarno and the theory of TMS repressed emotions causing pain.

    I hope that the NYC symposium helps doctors to better accept this and stop pushing pills or surgery

    I also hope that a report of the findings from the symposium will be written in plain English.

    Heya, Tom, your post got me thinking. I'm going to start another thread that I hope may hope with the decoding.... I'll post here when I'm done with that.
