An assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, Josh Gibson, MD, also operates a private practice in San Francisco, where he focuses on clinical and occupational psychiatry. Josh Gibson, MD, has given a number of presentations at professional gatherings over the years and helped pen the e-book CAREERS – A Brainwise Guide to Finding Fulfillment at Work.
Published in 2012, CAREERS explores the concept of being happy in one’s profession and finding an appropriate work-life balance. The book addresses two questions: what will you do for a career, and how will you get to that desired point? The authors offer advice from professionals who have already achieved satisfying careers and couple the advice with relevant scientific findings from psychology and neurology.
The authors distill their knowledge into seven chapters, and in each they discuss a specific positive behavior that reflects elements of essential brain function. Beginning with a chapter on change and ending with one on sacrifice, the book is designed to guide readers through the process of finding sustainable fulfillment in their professional and personal lives.
