Bullying has become a serious problem among adolescents and teens. And today’s advancements in technology have made it easier for bullies to gain access to their victims. No longer are verbal and physical acts of violence the primary methods of attack and abuse. Today’s bullies communicate in ways that are often behind the scenes and unknown by adults. They use text messages, blogs, e-mail, letters, websites, and other social media to spread rumors and threats. Unfortunately, there is no escape for the victim, and no place is considered off limits.
The desire to reduce pain and suffering of children and empower youth to be the best they can be is what inspired Karl A. Floyd to create his Professor Gulu stories and the Cerebrophonic music series.
With a focus on increasing youth coping skills, safety awareness, self-esteem, judgment and decision-making abilities, Professor Gulu’s learning series has become a powerful tool to help gauge youth progress towards emotional maturity. In addition, the series will help parents and guardians learn effective communication skills and develop insight and understanding on complex issues that affect youth development.
A resident of Fort Bend County, Texas, Karl lives with his wife and business partner, Ann Branch-Floyd, and develops educational and therapeutic resources that support healthy community development. He holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston, University Park, and works as a behavioral healthcare professional. Karl is a former Statewide Health Coordinating Council Member with the Governor’s Office of Boards and Commissions (2004-2010) and is licensed in Texas as a professional counselor. In addition, he is certified as a Fellow and Diplomate with the American Board of Medical Psychotherapists and Psychodiagnosticians.
