He now resides in Gurabo, Puerto Rico and still works actively in the prevention of many social problems of his country.


In his book The Great Window (1994) he proposed the theory of the "Protective Unconscious." The writer and media personality has written many books and articles relating to psychiatry. For ten years he hosted a radio talk show, Ya No Estás Solo (Never alone again), which is an educational program in the area of mental health.
