Lolita M. Domingue: Emotional Transformation Therapy is an interactive ecological psychotherapy originated by Steven R. Vazquez, Ph.D. in the 1990’s. It is a synthesis of attachment-based interpersonal therapy that is radically amplified by precise visual brain stimulation: the light enters the eyes and photosensitive cells convert it into neural impulses. Many of these impulses affect parts of the brain beyond the visual cortex to control thoughts, emotions, and physical symptoms. By selecting precise forms of visual brain stimulation, the neural impulses are directed to rapidly change the parts of the brain responsible for the client’s disturbance.
