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 Veteran Groups of Peace Veterans For Peace http://www.veteransforpeace.org/ VVAW http://www.vvaw.org/ Peace Not War http://www.peace-not-war.org/ Amputee Material Amputee Coalition dot org Arm Amputation Guide https://www.amputee-coalition.org/arm-amputation- guide/ [Extracted from Internet 2020/05/08] CNN 2016/11/22   New amputation procedure offers promise By Jessica Ravitz https://www.cnn.com/2016/11/22/health/amputation- innovation/index.html Info for New Amputees: Upper Limb https://www.ottobockus.com/prosthetics/info-for-new- amputees/information-for-upper-limb-amputees-and- their-families/ Arm Dynamics Amputation Levels https://www.armdynamics.com/our-care/amputation- levels Zippers Links here are Meant to Inform, Not Advertise On Shape Unique Zipper Design Delivers Independence to People With Disabilities https://www.onshape.com/cad-blog/unique-zipper- design-delivers-independence-to-people-with- disabilities ot seeing any viable alternatives in the marketplace, Roberman designed and 3D-printed his own magnetic Nclips that would fit over his favorite jacket’s zipper when he and his wife Gail traveled cross country in their RV.

The Top 5 Adaptive Clothing Companies https://www.caringvillage.com/2018/02/12/top-5- adaptive-clothing-companies/ With nearly 1 in 4 adults living with a disability in the U.S. (source), the need for adaptive apparel represents a large market and need. A common challenge many aging adults face is the act of getting dressed and undressed by themselves. This can be the result of a physical disability, chronic condition, and/or other restrictions that may come with age or for people with disabilities. This is where adaptive clothing can be of great help.
