Dr. Z (Zachary S. Brooks, PhD) is cited in Nature, Graduate Student Mental Health

Dr. Z (Zachary S. Brooks, PhD) is cited in Nature, Graduate Student Mental Health

Tucson, Arizona, USA — June 7, 2019 — Research by Dr. Z, also known as Zachary S. Brooks, PhD was recently cited in Nature: International Journal of Science. During his graduate studies he teamed up with Dr. Ezra Smith a research professor at New York State Psychiatric Institute and The Center for Neurosciences Tucson to investigate the effects of graduate studies on graduate and professional students mental health.

 

It is often the graduate and professional students who help earn high rankings for major research universities through their labor. “While graduate students’ lives may seem carefree, the students themselves are often required to take on additional debt and professional responsibilities while working for less than minimum wage,” shares Dr. Z (Zachary S. Brooks, PhD). The goal of the study was to identify potential low-cost interventions across campus that can improve graduate and professional student quality of life in school. In 2015, 309 students completed the survey (10.3% response rate). Responses were analyzed separately for Master (N=139) and Doctoral students (N=157). There were 196 female, and 102 male respondents. Ages ranged from 21 to 64 years old, with a modal age of 25. Dr. Smith added: “I’m happy to see increased awareness of mental health issues in graduate and professional students. Advanced education should not be bad for your health.”

22 Weeks Highlights

In the first 22 weeks of Dr. Z, I am happy to announce that I have received 10,000 visitors from 90 countries. There are people who understand how search engine optimization (SEO) better than I and there are web crawlers who look for new content every second, but I believe strongly that the reason I have received so many visitors with a marketing budget of less than $100 is the power of the human story, or as my tagline reads: consequential stories for life.

It is through recounting stories of people that we reflect, dignity, uplight, and hopefully improve our existence. Storytelling is an original technology based the unique ability of humans to use language then pass on stories through language. Storytelling is the fire and light source around which we gather, share frustrations, and gain comfort.

Dr. Z Podcasts is using some of the best technologies (web 2.0)  in the early 21st century to share a collection of stories centered on the 6A philosophy. 6As is my upcoming book based on the 6As of life: athletics, adventure, academics, art, advocacy, human algorithm. “The 6As: a practical philosophy for living life with meaning and purpose.” With Dr. Z Podcasts, I’m interested in consequential stories for life (trademark pending) about a doctor working on her research, an Olympian living his dreams after an organ transplant, how to overcome a loss, bilingual decision making, philosophies that change life, and decisions that affect us all.

My two leading shows are People Behind the PhDs and Organ Oracles. I’ve collected sufficient interviews for both shows that I am now creating “seasons” for each show to create a coherent and hopefully “binge-worthy” content that touches and inspires you. In addition, I’m creating a series of 1-minute podcasts for my newsletter — Dr. Z Podcasts Newsletter Signup! — for the busy person who nonetheless needs to be touched by the power of story. My headline 1-minute show is called The Daily Decision.

What is Inverse Mentoring?

What is Inverse Mentoring?

If you’re like me, you think of “learning,” but backwards. And it turns out that’s a good place to start because formal learning for at least 150 years has been seen as adult teaching a child in a formal setting such as a school. 

That makes sense as it is parents harvesting the fields who have through practice, trial and error taught their children how to use the hoes to weed and break up the soil. Breaking up the soil is the beginning stage of getting results which is producing crops. And “inverse mentoring” works the same way but now it’s the children teaching their parents to produce new crops.

Flipped Teaching and Learning

The “hoes” in the digital world start with ctrl + paste which is copying text or other files from one place to another. Quickly the skills become more complex. Logging into a website that requires not only a password but also a security code sent to your phone means that you have to both use a computer and a phone or navigate multiple applications on your phone.

For a generation of people for whom these skills are not second nature, they could use some practice in the field. Fortunately, there is a generation of people for whom these skills are second nature. And that’s where inverse mentoring comes in.
