Dr. Gordon has created and implemented what may well be the world’s largest and most effective program for healing population- wide trauma. He and his 130 international faculty have brought this program to populations as diverse as refugees from wars in the Balkans, the Middle East, and Africa; firefighters and U. S. military personnel and veterans and their families; student/ parent/teacher school shooting survivors; and Native American children and their families—as well as stressed out professionals, stay-at-home mothers, inner-city children, White House officials, health professionals and medical students, and people struggling with severe emotional and physical illnesses. One published study of child survivors of war in Kosovo—the first randomized controlled trial of any intervention with war-traumatized children—is exemplary. After participating in an 11-week-long group where they learned the skills taught in The Transformation more than 80 percent of the children no longer had symptoms of PTSD.
