Don Joseph Goewey founded ProAttitude, a human performance firm that has consulted with Fortune 100 companies to alleviate employee stress and elevate people’s experience of work and life.
Previously, Don managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford University Medical School, ran San Mateo County’s emergency medical services system, directed the Marin AIDS Project during the height of the AIDS epidemic, and headed the Center Attitudinal Healing, internationally recognized for developing a psycho-spiritual, peer-support driven approach to helping people overcome catastrophic life events. In 2005, the Center Attitudinal Healing was awarded the Excellence in Medicine citation by the American Medical Association.
Don has worked in supporting people in high stress situations – from those facing life-threatening illnesses, to parents struggling with the loss of a child, prisoners serving life sentences, and refugees of the genocidal war in Bosnia struggling with extreme post-traumatic stress.
Don also spent six years directing a research effort that integrated breakthroughs in neuropsychology into a model that changes brain structure to extinguish knee-jerk stress reactions and amplify the higher brain function that enables a person to flourish. He is the author of the Amazon bestseller, The End of Stress, Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain.
