About the author (1996)

Jeffrey M. Schwartz M. D. is a psychiatrist and researcher in neuroplasticity and its connection to obeseeive-compulsive disorder. He is a believer in mind/body dualism and feels that science and religion should not be separated. Dr. Schwartz coined the term Brain Lock to describe obsessive-compulsive behavior and the treatment plan he formulated and wrote about in his book Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior. In his book Schwartz claims that obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD) are a result of a bio-chemical imbalance where brain functions will get "locked" in an obsessive-compulsive pattern and that OCD can be self-treated by following four steps. His book outlines these steps as Relabel, Reattribute, Refocus and Revalue. His other books include The mind and the brain: Neuroplasticity and the power of mental force and You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life.
