Peter Parkinson, MD
Peter Parkinson is one of the finest physicians, loving social activists, and great healers of our time. His work in asthma is extraordinary, and his book " Smash Asthma; The Wisdom of Wheezing" , available on Amazon in the hyperlink in blue underlined and other sites is beyond compare, not just for what he explains so understandably in the physiology of the lungs's function, his exploration of the psychological roots of chronic asthma is one of the best examples of the workings of psychoneuroimmunology I have ever seen. His seminal exploration of our ability to literally shut down our adrenal function is stunning.
Peter is one of the most prolific and generous proponents of Psychodrama and Sociometry I have come to know since my beginnings with the Morenos in 1968 in Beacon New York.
Peter's contributions need to be studied and duplicated as the fulfillment of the dreams J. L. Moreno, MD spoke of often. Through Peter's work, the dream has become a reality available to all. See the video below.
The first "Asthma Pro," document below is Peter's thesis published as part of his becoming qualified as a psychodramatist in New Zealand. It is beyond brilliant and will deserve studying for years to come.
In this paper, among many other jewels, we see Peter's development of two tools, in process of becoming software for general use: The Social Atom Scorer and the Personal Boundary Scorer. These have very significant implications for all therapy and developmental theory.
The second document is Peter's mapping out how suicide clinics might be established with case history examples.
