POKER IS COMING TO MENTAL HEALTH
For the last several years, Dr. Grace has been developing a system to use Texas Hold 'Em Poker to help people learn to deal with negative emotions.
In particular, domestic violence survivors struggle to manage emotions related to lying, manipulation, intimidation and the like. But in small doses these emotions are part of the game of poker and learning to play this game can help build these skills in a small controlled way. For local help with a domestic violence situation visit the website for CASA - Citrus County Abuse Shelter Organization, a private, non-profit organization with a mission to empower victims of domestic violence to become independent.
Listen to a radio interview with Dr. Grace describing Poker Psychotherapy
In an effort to bring more research to Citrus County, John W. Grace, M.D.,P.A. has begun working with Nature Coast Clinical Research to provide quality mental health research to our residents. Research is an important part of progress. Please visit Nature Coast Clinical Research at the site below to learn more.
Dr. Grace's Books and Writings
Dr. Grace's Latest Book, "Where am I?" is now available through the link below. This book explores how the spatial nature of emotion is responsible for our greatest problems as individuals and a species. If you can learn how to answer, "Where am I?" most of the questions of your life become crystal clear.
Dr. Grace recently was also interviewed regarding his book, The Importance of Being Average.
