As a Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Tau Braun focused on integrative psychology and wellness. Post 9/11, Dr. Braun began to narrow his research and practice to understanding the causes of violence, the prevention and response to violence, and crisis psychology.
As a U.S. National Counterterrorism and Emergency Management SME, Dr. Braun advises and trains educational institutions, healthcare facilities, corporations (including Fortune 100 and 500 companies), and both state and federal government organizations in Violence Prevention Strategies and Crisis Response, such as Threat Management; Active Attacker Prevention and Response, Counterterrorism, and Crisis Leadership. In 2019, Dr. Braun provided testimony on Mass Violence to the Texas Senate Select Committee on Mass Violence Prevention and Community Safety.
Dr. Tau Braun’s epistemological, humanistic, systems-based approach offers a compassionate, scientific, optimistic, and mindful solution to complex issues.
During the COVID crisis, Dr. Braun found himself in the epicenter, New York City, and shifted his focus towards mitigation and prevention strategies against the virus, a non-human mass casualty attacker, causing immense amounts of human suffering. In 2020-2021 he led a team of scientists in developing and sourcing Covid-19 response strategies. This effort culminated in the invention of Copperine, a bioavailable copper-zinc-polyphenol formulation. The compound is suitable for a wide range of delivery methods, including but not limited to an aerosolized vapor that is inhaled and sprayed directly into the mouth.
On June 6th, 2021 Dr. Braun wrote a letter to the FBI voicing his concerns with Covid research, Covid vaccines, spike proteins, and the overall response to what could be a biological attack and offered to provide support.
Dr. Braun is currently investigating the bio-synthetic aspects of SARS-CoV2, the possibility that it is a military-grade biological weapon, and mapping its pathophysiology.
