LARGO, Md., October 2, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Hunter-Newsome Communication introduces a cutting-edge book for everyone especially men. Over 35 million children and 70 million adults suffer from trauma. Research shows that of the 45.7 million black people living in the United States (U.S. Census 2014 and U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Service Minority Health 2016), 16 percent had a diagnosable mental illness in the past year ― that’s over 6.8 million people walking around with diagnosable, yet likely untreated mental illnesses (American Psychological Association 2016).
Dr. William “Flip” Clay, an internationally renowned, award-winning counselor, has a solution to today’s societal mental health crisis--especially men. His new cutting-edge book, "The Diary of an Emotionally Constipated Man," was released on September 7, 2018, takes readers on a personal journey and recaps stories of resilience to break down what he calls “emotional constipation.”
Thank you for coming to Kenmoor. Your presentation made an impact on many of my students. This is the first break I've had since you left. Every five-minute students were dismissed from class due to stirred emotions. Today was the first time many of our students were able to open up and share some of their issues and sorrows. I have a young lady that I kid and joke around with me every day and she never told me that her 5 older brothers are incarcerated. (All of them) Wow!! She could barely compose herself. Thank you for being their inspiration today.
Ms. K. Thompson, Professional School Counselor
"The Diary of an Emotionally Constipated Man" delves into topics including “Emotional Incarceration,” “Man Down: Father Gone,” “Love, Lies and Emotions,” and “Intergenerational Emotional Incarceration” among others. This text will transform men from the inside out. When men are healed, they can transform their families, communities, and generations to come.
Dr. William “Flip” Clay served as a contributor to the 2013 College Board School Counseling Journal Series "Transforming the Educational Experience of Young Men of Color," and he appeared on the "Steve Harvey Morning Show" with W.H.U.R at Howard University, 96. 3. In 2012, The National Association of Black School Educators awarded Dr. Clay with the National Marcus Forster Distinguished Educator of the Year Award, and in 2010, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice of the United States, recognized Dr. Clay as an “extraordinary role model and leader.” Dr. Clay continues to empower thousands of educators, families, communities, churches, youth, and children.
