Attention Deficit Disorder – Powerful Effective Recovery Treatment Training Program

by Rabbi Dr. Lynn Kesselman

Most Authorities define ADD as though it were caused by a genetic defect or Brain Malformation or Injury. They like to think of it as a separate illness from Anxiety or PTSD (Post Dramatic Stress Disorder) Perhaps in some rare cases there is a physical basis for ADD but I have never knowingly encountered such a person.

ADD is a result of an injury but the injury in my experience is purely psychological and often related to selective or general forms of Depression or PTSD or both. People who complete the Five Gates Program never have ADD because the Five Gates Program removes the real causes of ADD except where it is related to a severe cause of PTSD and in this case it will improve significantly. to help people understand ADD I have renamed it “A Version Disorder.” This is to say that it is very much like the horror that some of us experience when we look at the dissected inside of another human being or watch a video or ourselves going through major surgery. An example that will help clarify this point is that often I have had a patient suffering from ADD and on reviewing the patients history with them I may discover that for various reasons they hated school. this may eventually result in ADD when they try to go on in their studies with a deeply rooted conviction that they will fail and the awareness of their previous failures has made them incapable of focusing their attention on new material that the mind associates with the pain of previous failures. its much like a person who says, “I can’t do Math” and again and again when they are required to study or do anything mathematical their mind refuses to focus on it. In taking their Fifth Gate* we often find other reasons why trying to do Math has caused them shame and pain and when we discuss this in depth in their fifth gate the pain goes away and so does the ADD. I have found the same pattern, “I can’t do Math” but a variety of subjects and types of experience.

If you can’t read this and understand it maybe you are suffering from ADD 🙂

* In the “Clearing Function” of the Fifth Gate we explore together all of their sources of Psychological Pain or disabilities and go back to the beginning of when they were first experienced, where possible and I sometimes help them “Invent” a logical possibility for what caused it to happen the first time. I insist we go no further in walking through their lives to logically explain how this did or may have happened. It has the effect of triggering “Inverted Pyramid Effect” (Our special way of describing the chain reaction of causing all direct and indirect consequences and repetitions of the same kind with respect to the matter that has now been logically explained “Cleared.” The Pyramid Effect is the powerful central healing agent of the entire Five Gates Program.

Definition of the Five Gates Program:
The Five Gates Program is a form of Cognitive or Person Centered Psychotherapy. It is unique for its Fifth Gates which operates through a powerful healing principle Dr. Kesselman has labeled “The Inverted Pyramid Effect,” which is the remarkable healing engine by which people in reviewing sequentially the events in their lives and finding a logical explanations for each of their psychological pains specially Anxieties and Depressions, are able to experience the triggering of “Clearing” healing all of the later consequences and confusions associated with the psychological difficulties that has caused them to want to take the Five Gates Program.
