Dr. Erik Fisher is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Georgia, who has dedicated his career and personal life to the advancement of human potential in the physical, mental and spiritual realms. His personal philosophy is that every person holds the key to their own potential, and their goal is to seek it out.
Dr. Fisher graduated from
Throughout his graduate education, he presented various lectures in the public schools on body image disturbance and eating disorders. After completing his degree, he began working with children and adults with attention deficit disorders and was co-creator of The ADDvantage Program, which was designed to address the needs of individuals and families with attention deficit disorder throughout the life-span. His success with this population is, in part, due to his own experiences with ADD and his ability to identify with these individuals. Since the inception and ultimate closure of The ADDvantage Program, Dr. Fisher has presented many lectures and workshops, as well as a half-hour television interview. His emphases on ADD focus on the emotional consequences of ADD as well as the strengths and gifts of individuals with ADD.
Dr. Fisher has completed writing his second book, From Victim to Victor, which discusses various the concepts of power and how our emotions affect our sense of personal power. The book discusses individual power struggles, family and intimate relationship issues, as well as other life interactive experiences where power issues occur. Evolution of the Soul, is Dr. Fisher's first book, which is a combination of poems, perspectives and philosophies on life that he has written over a period of years. The purpose of Evolution of the Soul, is to help people evaluate and chart their own evolution through their interpretations of the perspectives. This bibliotherapy technique, using his manuscript, has proven very valuable to therapy clients, and its publication came at the urging of clients who felt it may help others find their own paths.
To aid in building
credibility in corporate markets, Dr. Fisher is seeking a consultant on developing
the ideas presented in From Victim to
Victor into a business-training program. Similar to Total Fitness: Body and Mind Fit for Life, he also has plans of
ultimately developing the material in his most recent book for children and
adolescents as an educational program in the schools. The focus of the program
would be on building emotional intelligence through understanding the purpose
and productive use of emotion.
