Rodolfo L Garcia Otero

Brief Story

I was born on October 4 1969 in Buenos Aires. In 1989, I started to attend for four years to a Theosophical meditation group directed by my Master Alicia Venere in Buenos Aires. In 2004 I graduated as a Licensed Psychologist at Universidad Argentina John F. Kennedy, Buenos Aires. Since 2003 I attended many internships and study groups to improve my professional skills. In 2006 I started an 18 month Practical Trainee Program with a big proportion of autistic spectrum population in Pennsylvania, USA. By the end of 2007 I moved to New York to work as a psychotherapist meanwhile taking American psychological methods and techniques trainings. By the end of 2010 I returned to Buenos Aires. Besides my private practice, I was trained in more neuropsychological techniques. At the same time I developed the Theosophical - Scientific Paradigm [TSP]. The following year, 2012, I developed Multilevel Tone Calibration - Symptom and Trauma Management [MTC-STM]; the clinical application of the TSP. During the 2014 FIFA World Cup I designed Neuro Psycho Sport, a Neuropsychological Toolkit for enhancing Sportsmen performance.
