Professional Interests - Sharing Research Areas and Networking Opportunities

This section is intended to help researchers and clinicians identify the existing range of topics that already have generated clinical research using the SCI and Control Therapy, and perhaps stimulate ideas about topics to purse in CT. Please click on the right to overview topics, countries where research has been/is being conducted, and languages in which SCI/CT research has been/is being conducted. Then click on any topic of interest to find further details.

You can also add your own areas of interest/research by clicking on "Add me to the interests list".

Over the past decades, researchers and clinicians throughout the world have corresponded with Dr. Shapiro expressing their interest in a variety of topics related to his work on Control Therapy, the SCI, eastern and western self-control techniques. He has invited them to share their topics, as a way to facilitate an interchange and networking of ideas and interests around topics of control assessment and therapy. This material is printed below.

Please feel free to scroll through it. If you would like to add your area(s) of interest, you are invited to do so below. Please list any publications related to Control Therapy or the SCI. Please also provide the keywords under which you feel your work best fits from those listed (or list other, as appropriate); as well as how you may best be contacted. If you are already listed, and have an updated contact, please add that.

Although this information is updated periodically, some of the information (email, phone number, etc...) may be out of date. The intention of this section is primarily to give people insights into the many different areas that are being researched.

Again, thank you for your interest and contribution.
