Healing Strategies for the GENIUS
This book places life-changing tools for mental, spiritual, and physical health in your hands. Authored by three professionals who realized through their years of practice that prescription medication is not the answer for every illness, Healing Strategies for the GENIUS offers strategies to bring you into healthy balance from cell to soul.
Our generation is experiencing an alarming rise in mental health diagnoses and physical illness in children and adults. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer remain all-too-familiar disablers, and medical professionals are seeing them in their patients at younger ages. Many aspects of these conditions are rooted in lifestyle and stress. Traditional medicine addresses the symptoms of these problems, but not always the root causes. Healing Strategies for the GENIUS targets the origin of the issue.

About the Authors
Lori Richardson, LCSW, is a therapist and a licensed clinical social worker. She specializes in the neuroscience of rewiring brain pathways and reprogramming for new thought, feelings, and behaviors. Devoted to international volunteerism, she has worked and lived in orphanages abroad and also in local group homes. She has lived in Africa, Peru, Mexico, and most recently Guatemala. While immersed in foreign cultures, Lori shared songs, stories, and similarities with children who—even without families—glowed in their spirits. They lit the first flame in her soul to become a social worker, therapist, and foster and adoptive parent.
After completing her master of social work from the University of Central Florida, she trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, which has transformed her clinical experience with healing.
Lori lives and thrives very happily in Asheville, North Carolina, raising her son and working with students and adults. Her vision is to continue the creation of Asheville Brain Spa, a mental retreat that teaches bilateral stimulation, energy psychology, and relaxation techniques that are mentioned in this book. Lori writes a weekly blog on healing modalities and invites readers to rate and to review strategies worldwide.

Lynne Grace, LCSW is a licensed clinical social worker, therapist, entrepreneur, and lifelong learner. Her lengthy clinical experience began shortly after graduation in 1966 from the University of South Florida where she began work in a large hospital. There she encountered the drama of emotional and physical trauma against a backdrop of life and death.
Her social work career spanned over three decades in detention centers, hospitals, and skilled nursing homes in the major metropolitan areas of Florida and Nevada. Lynne has received recognition and awards for her work in public service and maintains memberships in the National Association of Social Workers; the Association for Research and Enlightenment, Inc.; and The Academy for Spiritual and Consciousness Research, a science-driven organization.
Lynne completed her master’s degree in 1996, became licensed in 2000, and opened a private practice in Central Florida. She has worked extensively with trauma, using EMDR hypnosis therapy, and neurolinguistic programming. Her current private practice, Rejuvenate with Grace, Inc., is located in Central Florida.
She recently completed advanced training in Repair and Reattachment Grief Therapy as developed by Rochelle Wright, LMHC (licensed mental health counselor), in Washington state. She is also increasingly interested in applying the evolving knowledge of the quantum field to her clinical practice.
What Are GENIUS Books?
Though we admit to a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun in referring to our readers as geniuses, we do in fact think highly of them! We know that they are intelligent and knowledgeable about many subjects, just not necessarily on the subject of the For the GENIUS book they’ve just picked up. They know that, despite the title, our books are for pretty much everyone, not just “Einsteins”—though even some Einsteins will enjoy our books, too!
We celebrate the fact that our readers are inspired to learn a subject enough to pick up one of our books, which in turn inspires us to ensure, through plenty of perspiration at every step, excellence in producing them.
Readers will enjoy the fun, upbeat, and first-person writing style. They will even find themselves entertained by the occasional sprinkled-in humor, and look forward to sidebars that enhance the discussion.
Though written in a conversational first-person style, GENIUS books are thorough and authoritative treatments of the subject. They are written by top experts in the subject who want to share with others what they’ve learned.
The For the GENIUS series was created by CharityChannel, a community of nonprofit-sector professionals, to offer the world something different and not always on a nonprofit topic. Enjoy!
