He completed his internship at the Children's Psychiatric Center in Miami, FL. He has extensive and diverse experience, ranging from working with children and adolescents on the autistic spectrum and those with emotional disturbances, to working with the military population. Dr. Silas specializes in loss, grief, trauma and PTSD. While working with the PTSD and TBI initiative through the military, Dr. Silas discovered Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT, or tapping), and has since become an EFT practitioner. He recognizes its effectiveness in helping people recover not only through their trauma, but any other life experiences. Stressing the link and interplay between mind and body (and spirit) is critical in his work.
