Del Mar, Ca (PressExposure) November 21, 2008 -- Join Alex Tsakiris for an interview with Dr. Jon Klimo. During the 45-minute interview they discuss his work as an educator in psychology:
"This is positive psychology really, where we learn from not the damage goods of our fellow beings but from them on a very good hair day of being a human being and say, âGee, could I go there, could I have a little bit of quality of life? Could I be a little smarter, could I be a little more self-fulfilled?â Of course you can. So, I focused my at Rutgers during those eight years was how to make accessible these realms that in the extreme could be considered off-putting or threatening because you begin to then label them as psychism, or metaphysics, or "donât be so open-minded your brains fall out", so, you stay more tightly wrapped."""
