About the Author
Dr. Malter worked as a school psychologist until 1976. After meeting Dr. John Cooper, Dr. Malter trained with Dr. Cooper until 1979, learning about Dr. Coopers concept of the Judge in personality (a phenomenological concept). In 1979, Dr. Malter started his own group practice in suburban Chicago. Dr. Malters practice involved individual, group, and family therapy as well as psycho-educational assessments of children, adolescents, and adults who showed symptoms of Learning Disabilities and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). He has a special interest in auditory memory and language processing components in ADD.
Dr. Malter expanded Dr. Coopers Judge concept into an integrated new model that also incorporated the concept of the "Inner Child" and the Jungian "Warrior" archetype. Imagery and art therapy were integral aspects of Dr. Malters counseling and therapy work with people. This new integrated model that focused on the Judge concept is described in the book Shrinking the Judge: Freeing the Inner Child that Dr. Malter co-authored with his wife, Rosalie, in 1996. In 2001, Dr. Malter retired from his private practice to Cottonwood, Arizona.
Dr. Malter has also specialized in nutrition consultation for Learning Disabilities, ADD and stress management. Since a persons Judge reactions tend to intensify under increasing stress, Dr. Malter used nutritional data from hair tissue mineral analysis (TMA) to assess the mind/body connection between stress reactions and psychological dominance of the Judge. He often recommended selected nutritional supplements to reduce the intensity of the persons stress response and, therefore, to reduce the psychological dominance of the Judge. He believes very strongly in an integrated mind/body approach using clinical nutrition and his Judge, Inner Child, Warrior model for bringing about major psychological and emotional changes in a healthy manner without the negative side effects of drugs and medications. Hair TMA is a powerful laboratory tool that helps us to see more clearly how stress and mineral imbalances eventually lead to disease and dysfunction. But, this powerful too! l may also serve as a scientific guide to using nutrition to reverse adverse health trends before they make us sick or dysfunctional.

*** note, I am editing my original review here in April 2018 from 5 to 3 starts because I have since read "Hair Test Interpretation: Finding Hidden Toxicities" by Andrew Cutler****
Hair analysis (called TMA Tissue Mineral Analysis) is a big, big deal. As a person who has studied health, diet, weight and psychology professionally and as my favorite hobby, I believe that TMA has most of the answers for health and vitality.
While this book is good and convincing that this field of study is valuable and important, it pales in comparison to the plain spoken advice on metal toxicities that Andrew Cutler covers in Hair Test Interpretation.
This is a great one!

I suspect modern diets are very lacking in trace elements; trace elements can be important for the proper functioning of enzymes in the body, for example; this lack of minerals may well be at the root of many modern illnesses. Until I thought about it, I assumed that a good varied diet would provide all we need, but our soil tends to be over farmed and lacking in minerals meaning plants tend not to be able to absorb them in the quantities needed for health. Previous generations returned all waste to the soil and rotated their crops, so did not suffer from this problem.
Conversely, our environment may be loaded with poisonous minerals which it would be good to get rid of, and knowing if we are over-loaded can be the start of rectifying this.
