I had an amazing time with this potent conversation. "Emphasizing Global Healing, J.J. can talk about why our kids are so stressed, and the difference between deep sadness and clinical depression. Dr. J.J. Kelly is a licensed clinical psychologist, emotional intelligence skills training expert, and bestselling author of The Holy Shit! Series. J.J. is also the CEO and founder of UnorthoDocs, Inc., a punk alternative to traditional psychotherapy that centers around group process, peer-coaching, mentorship, and community outreach. Dr. Kelly and the Unortho "Docs" (former "patients") live their lives with the belief that global healing is achieved by teaching people the skills to like themselves."
