Listen to Dr. Gruder's Interview About This 

The American Psychological Association has been tracking stress in the United States for a number of years through their "Stress in America” survey. They have found clear evidence that there is a growing need for psychoeducational and psychotherapeutic resources to help consumers across all generations deal more effectively with societal and political stressors. Here are some of their findings:

  • 62% of Americans report that the current political climate is a significant stressor

  • 56% say this is the lowest point in our nation’s history that they can remember

  • 69% report that considering the nation's future causes them significant stress

This is your invitation to attend a remarkable training program for helping pros from Dr. David Gruder. It’s for you if...


​You know that societal divisiveness, political polarization, and media mindjacking are creating massive stress in a significant number of your clients.​


You are done tiptoeing around societal & political issues with your clients in the name of remaining non-biased.​


You want to master nonpartisan ways of assisting your clients in dealing with these issues in psychologically healthy & uplifting ways.

This training provides you with a complete integrated set of psychoeducational interventions for equipping your clients to effectively deal with the societal & political stress that’s infecting their wellbeing, harming their relationships, & crushing them as citizens. You'll learn how to elevate your clients' mindset & skills in these 3 key areas:

  • Locus of Control
    Being controlled by situations, other people, and/or one's inner critic OR being self-sovereign.

    Elevate your ability to facilitate self-responsibility in your clients and to help them become free from their inner critic's tyranny.

  • Locus of Power

    Being power-phobic (afraid of one's misusing power), power passive (deferring to authorities, experts, ideologies, & propaganda), or power rebellious (opposing what's wrong instead of advocating solutions), OR mastering ethical personal power effectiveness.

    Discover how to help your clients replace propaganda susceptibility, learned helplessness, power phobia, and impotent activism, by propaganda-proofing them and elevating their ethical personal power effectiveness.

  • Locus of Interaction

    Using coercion or compromise to manage others OR using collaboration to co-create with other.

    Become more adept at improving your clients' capacity for both/and thinking (instead of either-or thinking) and teach them the skills that turn collaboration from a good intention into practical procedures.

  • PLUS
    Gain the following capabilities to deepen your ability to assist your clients in elevating their Locus of Control, Power & Interaction...

    • What the research says about the impacts of societal and political stress on clients

    • Three big myths that are fueling societal divisiveness and political polarization, and how helping professionals can lift the spell these create in clients 

    • A simple critical thinking framework that equips your clients to spot and cut through propaganda, so they can inoculate themselves against the daily Battle for the Brain

    • Training that helping pros need about the history, dynamics, and tactics of propaganda, and how to help  your clients inoculate themselves against being manipulated by it

    • The Five Great Truths of Thriving Societies that helping professionals must know in order to assist clients in dealing with the relentless daily barrage of propaganda coming from across the ideological, political, and special interest spectrums

    • A sustainable happiness formula that can enable your clients to integrate personal wellbeing and social responsibility into mature citizenship — what I call Self-Development That Serves Us All™

    • How to help your clients replace learned helplessness defeatism and impotent rebellious activism with psychologically mature solution-focused activism

    • A way to talk with your clients about the difference between sociopathic capitalism, debtism, and socially responsible capitalism

    • Ethical, financial, and risk implications of stepping into positively disruptive thought leadership as a helping professional who facilitates socially responsible self-development in your clients
