Dr RAGNAR PURJE
Dr Ragnar Purje holds the position of Adjunct Lecturer School of Education and the Arts, at Central Queensland University, Australia. Under the supervision of Professor Ken Purnell, Ragnar’s doctoral dissertation focussed on the success of his pioneering neurologically focused acquired brain injury rehabilitation therapy. The therapy is now referred to as CBBMMT (Complex Brain-Based Multi-Movement Therapy). Ragnar’s PhD thesis has also added two new descriptors into the lexicon of human biology; these are neurofluidity and hólos. Neurofluidity are the cascading neurological processes that lead to the condition of brain plasticity. Hólos is a descriptor which, perhaps for the first time in history (to the best of Ragnar’s research and understanding), provides a category which unifies the brain and the body, with one word, that of hólos. Prior to this holistic biological unification, the brain and the body had always been referred to as two separate entities. Hólos derives from the Greek: όλος ̶ ólos. The English word holistic is derived from hólos. Holistic and hólos offer the same classification. Holistic and hólos incorporate the concept of holism. Ragnar is the author of Responsibility Theory® (A new consideration in classroom behaviour management). Responsibility Theory® is a brain-based immersive systematic self-talk sequence learning neuroeducation program. The purpose of which is to empower teachers and inspire and transform students. Haibo He (2011, p. 190) emphasises that “sequence learning is presumably among one of the most important components of human intelligence.” Responsibility Theory® presents ten powerful precepts which provides teachers, educators, and parents with additional linguistic focussed pedagogical and social tools, that fits in with any teaching style, any classroom behaviour management program, and all school rules. The Responsibility Theory® program also fits in with all parental home rules.
