Dr. Brooks addresses essential themes in his presentations, including strategies for nurturing confidence and resilience in ourselves, our children, and in others; balancing our personal and professional lives; managing stress more effectively; creating positive work and school environments; and enriching family relationships.  His emphasis is on identifying and reinforcing the strengths or “islands of competence” in ourselves and others so that we may all lead more meaningful, successful lives.
