Hey hey! I'm Dr. Brooks. Every Tuesday, I facilitate a group coaching program for 2nd - 12th graders who desire to grow in their emotional resilience and resolve social problems.
I interact with students face-to-face via a Zoom-like video room to teach and troubleshoot their personal challenges. We play games, have fun, and learn a lot.
Research shows that group coaching is the BEST form of therapy for adolescence.JOIN MY GROUP >>
My 12-week coaching program is AWESOME!!!
You will get my focused support in this face-to-face group coaching program. I'm making myself available to you every Tuesday afternoon to help you learn emotional regulation and conflict resolution skills! Critical for success in school, home, and life!
Need extra support? I've got you. You can send me as many messages as you want during the 12-week program and my team and I will personally respond to you that day to offer our counsel and support.
I'm a sociologist that has been helping kids like you mange their emotions and solve their social problems longer than you've been alive. (20 years now!)
I've literally spoken to over 2 MILLION students in-person, face-to-face. That's over 3,000 speeches and enough sky-miles to go to travel to the moon. (238,900 miles)
My online training videos have had more than 300 million views and translated in 20 different languages. That's almost 3,000 years of watch time (if you add up all the minutes).
If you decide to be a part of my coaching group, the cost will be $200 a month.
If at any time you don't believe you need this type of ongoing support, no worries. You can cancel your membership into the group.
TOO MUCH TO LIST... but I'll jot down a very brief overview of the curriculum:
Are you hurt?
Students learn that nonverbal direct aggression (pushing, tripping, gesturing that doesn't cause pain) can only cause subjective harm, based on their interpretation of the provocation. They will learn how to build up their physical resilience by expanding their tolerance towards physical provocations.
Is it true?
Students learn that verbal indirect aggression (rumors/gossip/trolling) can only cause subjective harm, based on their interpretation of the behavior. They will learn how gossip feeds on their upsetness, and how to "kill the gossip" by "starving it to death."
What else can you do?
In this lesson, students learn that nonverbal indirect aggression (avoiding, ignoring, and excluding) can only cause subjective harm, based on their interpretation of the exclusion. They will learn the sociological value of exclusion and why it's important to preserve resources and values.
How could this turn out for your good?
Students learn how to improve their mood from "indifferent meh" to "optimistic glad". They will learn how to see the good in every bad and view themselves as advantageous for enduring the negative event. Optimistic thinking will be introduced.
Are they bothering you?
Students learn the intention behind aggression, with this first part focused on "bothering, provoking, and psychological domination." They will learn the sociological value of domination and how to avoid being dominated when they don't want to be. They will be introduced to "the law of reciprocity" and learn how to use that law to their advantage through "The Golden Rule". The key phrase to remember will be "Don't get upset, treat them like a friend."
Are they hurt by you?
Students learn the intention behind aggression, with this third part focused on "hurting and victimization". They will learn the sociological value of emotional pain and how to empathize with others, seeking to comfort them. They will be introduced to the four types of ineffective apologies and taught how to effectively apologize without shifting blame or making excuses. The key phrase to remember will be "Don't get upset and apologize."
