OK, I’m here, I’m here. Anybody see my sandwich? Oh, here it is. I was sitting on it. OK, Amen’s stuff. Currently, there has been no definable research that validates his theory (and that is the operative word) or any study that has replicated his beliefs. I understand that he sold 5 million last year from publicity he got from PBS on books and visits to his clinic. Clearly, he believes in what he does and no doubt there may be something there but without either validation and replication, it will remain just that, a theory. But from his point of view, why would he want to do a study? For credibility? He is raking in the dough. Clearly his credibility is that he is either a very good salesman or that people find his help positive. What does he have to lose doing a study if he believes in his work? What if the study shows that his results are no better than placebo, as it shows in Neurofeedback. That would mean that he is just a good salesman. Frankly, he will leave it to others to do the studies and will likely claim, as others before him have done, “Of course their study was negative. They just put in enough flaws to make it slant that way because they are jealous.” As if we all have beaker envy! The real reason he should do sufficient evidence-based work: because someone truly interested in the science and not the money wants to change the way we think and make a difference in a more everlasting manner. For now, I think Amen has guts and chrisma and has opened peoples eyes with both awe and skepticsm: the stuff of soap opera science. And you thought we were all boring nerds……well, maybe some of us. Back to my sandwich.
