It involves a blending of validated therapeutic techniques such as EMDR, hemispheric integration, and somatic experiencing, with remote viewing. This is particularly powerful in the treatment of PTSD. During the therapy "virtual" persons can be engaged, such as, healthy adult parts of the person, fallen comrades of a soldier in war, dead family members, abusers and spirit helpers to assist in the healing process. This often catalyzes a profound healing response where clients report a sense of deeper healing, even a Spiritual experience, while new material comes forward of forgiveness, compassion and love for the "self" and "others." http://www.irva.org/conferences/speakers/morse.html Acts and Bills for Veterans: Current and/or Past Restoration Act  S.1982 - Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act of 2014 http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/federal_government/senate-rejects-far-reaching-veterans-affairs- bill/2014/02/27/1d10801c-a001-11e3-b8d8-94577ff66b28_story.htm House and Senate negotiators have reached a tentative agreement to deal with the long-term needs of the struggling Department of Veterans Affairs and plan to unveil their proposal Monday.... http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post- politics/wp/2014/07/27/house-senate-negotiators-reach-deal-on-veterans-bill/ https://beta.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/senate-bill/1982 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/s1950 http://heritageaction.com/key-votes/comprehensive-veterans-health-benefits-military-retirement-pay-restoration-act-2014/ Trust Act The Inspector General’s interim report on Patient Wait Times, Scheduling Practices, and Alleged Patient Deaths at the Phoenix Health Care System and the results of VA’s face-to-face audit raise a number of issues that must be immediately addressed. THE RESTORING VETERANS’ TRUST ACT OF 2014 would increase Department accountability and immediately improve access to health care and veterans’ benefits.
