Above: Produced and filmed right here at KPBS studios, "Unstuck" teaches techniques for overcoming stress and enjoying a healthy life.

Learn how to change your moods, your health and your life in profound ways with a new PBS television program hosted by James S. Gordon, MD, a Harvard educated psychiatrist and one of the world’s leading experts in mind-body medicine. As a Clinical Professor at Georgetown Medical School and Founder/Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, DC, Dr. Gordon believes that unhappiness is a sign that our lives are out of balance. Frankly, sometimes we are simply stuck. His new television program, taped at KPBS TV in San Diego, is a practical guide for viewers, a simple seven-step journey that can change and transform lives.

UNSTUCK with James S. Gordon is designed to help those experiencing stress, anxiety, and dissatisfaction, as well as millions of Americans who are diagnosed with clinical depression.

Dr. Gordon demonstrates his approach in a way that's easy to understand and gives people the tools to help themselves, without antidepressants or other drugs. The groundbreaking, inspiring program, which he has successfully used in the U.S. and around the world, offers easy but powerful exercises that reduce stress and uncover the joy in life.

With forty years in private practice, Dr. S. Gordon developed his UNSTUCK approach by working closely with the world’s leading physicians and researchers, and studying with traditional healers from India, Tibet, Africa, China and the Americas. For ten years, he was a research psychiatrist at the National Institute of Mental Health and he also served as Chairman of the White House Commission on Complimentary and Alternative Medicine Policy. Dr. Gordon is the author or editor of twelve books.

UNSTUCK Techniques

  • Clinically tested experiments with words, images, drawings, movement and yoga that help mobilize your body.
  • Detailed, practical plans for using food and supplements to balance your physical and mental functioning.
  • Simple, effective meditations that can enhance the biology of your brain and body.
  • Ways to make the world’s spiritual wisdom and practices a part of your healing journey.

In this exciting and hopeful PBS TV program, James S. Gordon, MD, shows viewers that they are not alone in their journey of self discovery and self realization, and teaches specific techniques, like “soft belly” and “shaking and dancing” to discover—and enjoy—their own paths to becoming unstuck.

UNSTUCK will help viewers feel more optimistic and energetic and far more in control of their lives. The program will air nationally in December, 2009 on PBS stations nationwide. Produced by KPBS, Public Television, San Diego UNSTUCK with James S. Gordon, MD was made possible in part by The Center for Consciousness and Transformation at George Mason University.
