Kevin L. Keough, Psy.D. areas of specialisation include police psychology, crisis intervention and family therapy. Drawing on the teaching of mentors such as Chief LongWalker and RD Laing, (for whom he had organsied the Texas leg of Laing's second tour of the US in 1983), Kevin Keough's work is grounded in the principles of 'music, meditation and the martial arts of everyday life', and the spiritual traditions of the people of the first nations. Current areas of research and writing explore therapeutic modalities that develop and enhance patients' relationship to the soul through "The Three M's".
