His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self. His contributions appear in multiple disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment theory, trauma studies, behavioral biology, clinical psychology, and clinical social work. His groundbreaking integration of neuroscience with attachment theory has led to his description as “the American Bowlby,” with emotional development as “the world’s leading authority on how our right hemisphere regulates emotion and processes our sense of self,” and with psychoanalysis as “the world’s leading expert in neuropsychoanalysis.” The American Psychoanalytic Association has described Dr. Schore as “a monumental figure in psychoanalytic and neuropsychoanalytic studies.”

Elizabeth Krohn experienced a Near Death Experience when she was struck by lightning in 1988. For decades she spoke about her experience in individual settings, and has only recently decided to go public with her NDE. She has three grown children and six grandchildren. Elizabeth’s education and work history have nothing to do with NDE’s, and she was a harsh skeptic before her experience. She was totally unprepared for what happened to her in 1988, yet it has changed her life forever.
