About David Grinstead

As a perpetual student of the human psyche (the mind or personality), I focus on how people behave, believe and evolve. I'm a specialist in gap analysis - I close the gap between goals and achievement.

My adjunct professor duties at include teaching Workforce Development and Human Resource Development classes plus an occasional Behavioral Sciences or Continuing Education class. I do employment training, employment career development, performance management and development, coaching, mentoring, assessments, plus administration, proctoring and instruction of the KeyTrain and WorkKeys programs.

As a Life Coach I assist in uncovering the potential that lies below the surface. Together we discover the possibilities of what you can be, of what you can become and then we make it happen.

Grief Psychology: A Masculine Way of Grieving
David Grinstead

To grieve like a man is to grieve differently than a woman. It is not an option of better, worse, or less suitable, it’s just that a man’s way of grieving is different. Since it is different it is often confusing to others and can result in unwarranted isolation. “While women tend to react to the loss of a loved one as abandonment, men perceive it as losing part of themselves, as if severing an arm or leg.”

How I Use Clinical Hypnosis With a Client
David Grinstead

Using a case study (the client’s name and other personal details have been altered for identity protection) as an example, this paper provides an overview of how I design and assist a client with a treatment regimen that uses a mixture/combination of clinical hypnotherapy, life coaching, and spiritual counseling/direction.

Health-care Providers Fall Short on Stress Management
David Grinstead

According to a recent survey (2012) by the American Psychological Association (APA), when it comes to stress management and wellness, there is a gap between what Americans want from their health-care system and what they actually get.

Soulful Healing: Cured Versus Wholeness
David Grinstead

Many believe healing is synonymous with curing and it certainly can be, yet it’s possible to be cured and not to have healed. Returning to wholeness is one definition of healing, and I like that one best. I interpret it as a return to our core essence.

The Middle Path: Building Healthy Intimate Relationships
David Grinstead

To build, live, and experience relationships in the middle path means releasing illusions of control, and living in harmony with the natural energy flux of back and forth experienced in all relationships.

Creativity and the Healing Process
David Grinstead

My life experience has taught me that the desire to know, to become fully conscious and aware, to take responsibility for one’s condition, health, and recovery; the willingness to play the cards given at birth coupled with a willingness to explore and apply all the available options is the creative response required for Wholeness and demanded by our Higher Spiritual Other.

The Psychology of Abraham Maslow
David Grinstead

The corner stone of Abraham Maslow’s psychology are his ideas regarding the inner nature of man. It is a nature that is biologically based, natural and unchanging. Though it is partially species wide, it is particularly unique to self. This nature can be scientifically studied and discovered.

What is Healing: At What Level of Human Existence Does Healing Begin?
David Grinstead

At what level of human existence does healing begin? "There is no sharp line of line of demarcation between the religious, spiritual, emotional, and physical—between the body and the psyche." (Morton Kelsey, Healing and Christianity, 232)

A Contrast of the Mystical Elements of Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, and Christianity
David Grinstead

There are certain general characteristics of mysticism that are shared by Buddhism, Taoism, Judaism, and Christianity. This common ground is a unifying principle that positions the Divine in the midst of all genuine mystical experiences.

Can A Professional Hypnotist Help A Diabetic Client?
David Grinstead

The professional hypnotist is a motivator, a coach, a guide and a stress management consultant who can assist a client with diabetes by teaching techniques that allow the client to use his or her natural ability to positively change the way she or he thinks, feels, or behaves in relation to the diabetic condition. Working under the direction of a referring licensed practitioner, the hypnotist teaches the client to create these positive changes through the use of motivational coaching and self-hypnosis combined with imagery and creative imagination related to a positive and healthy lifestyle. Published literature and personal experience will be used to support this hypothesis.
