April 20, 2017
Hosted by Ronald Graves
Join us as Tampa Bay News 9 mental health expert, Dr. Steve O’Brien, discusses how he combined his more than 20 years as a practicing psychologist with clinical developmental focus with his vision to enable adults to connect with children in a way they understand. Recognizing that many mental health instruments could only be administered by mental health professionals, Dr. O’Brien created Psych-Touch, LLC. in order to modernize more traditional evaluation and therapeutic tools with a nod to the digital age, while simultaneously making such instruments accessible to a wide range of professionals. Discover the art of recognizing a need, identifying solutions, casting the vision, designing the prototype, and developing, launching, and marketing the final product. Listen as Dr. O'Brien takes us along on his journey and works with Coaching for Real host Ronald Graves to take the vision to the next level.
