Don Joseph Goewey - The End of Stress

Introduced by Eric Severson, Global Vice President of Human Resources at The GAP

We’re all well informed about the damage stress inflicts on our health, happiness, and efforts to succeed. Yet most of us have given in to it, accepting stress as the new normal. The stress reduction programs we’ve tried simply haven’t worked.

Don’t give in. There’s now a solution.

Neuroscience has discovered that genetics and past traumas wire our brain for stress reactions and that we can rewire those faulty circuits. It’s achieved through a specific shift in mindset.

This shift in mindset switches our brain’s “auto-pilot” from one that launches knee-jerk stress reactions to one that defaults to neural networks that generate the fluid and creative intelligence to reach our goals, together with the emotional and social intelligence that instills more joy in our work, more peace in our day, and more harmony in our relationships.

Making this change is simpler than you’d imagine and happens quickly, within four to eight weeks.
Come and learn how the proven approaches in The End of Stress can help you build a better brain for a better life.

Don Joseph Goewey managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, ran a regional emergency medical services system, and for twelve years headed an internationally recognized institute that pioneered an approach to catastrophic life events. He has worked with people facing some of life’s most stressful situations. Don also spent six years directing a think tank that integrated breakthroughs in neuroscience and psychology into a model for ending stress. He now heads ProAttitude, a human performance firm with the mission of ending work stress. He has been on the Today Show, CNN and NPR, and writes a blog for the Huffington Post.

Stephen Seager - Behind the Gates of Gomorrah

In Behind the Gates of Gomorrah, Stephen Seager, M.D. provides the first look inside a forensic mental hospital, the facilities that house the criminally insane. Unit C, where Seager was assigned at Napa State, is reserved for the “bad actors,” the mass murderers, sexual predators, school shooters, and real-life Hannibal Lecters of the world – and they are all at Napa State because they have all successfully employed the “insanity defense.”

Behind a twenty-foot-tall chain link fence topped with coiled razor wire, there is a verdant campus-like lawn populated by shimmering, ornery peacocks and some of the world’s most dangerous and violent criminals. Napa State Hospital is one of the largest forensic mental hospitals in the country, where each one of the 1,200 patients is criminally ill. It is a place of remarkable violence. To cross the fence is to enter a looking-glass world populated with figures from our nightmares – where lone therapists lead sharing circles with sociopaths, where an illicit underground economy flourishes, and where patients and physicians measure their lives by how fast they can run.

Stephen Seager is a board-certified psychiatrist, a former assistant professor of psychiatry at UCLA’s David Geffen School
of Medicine, and the author of several other books, which have been featured on Oprah, Good Morning America, NPR, and Larry King Live.
