Dr. Tracy Cooper is a leading voice for highly sensitive people, highly sensitive men, and high sensation seeking highly sensitive people with a mission to educate, mentor, and facilitate transformations in the lives of those seeking a conscious path to self-actualization and a creative realization of what it means to be human and alive at this moment. Dr. Cooper is the co-producer of the documentary film Sensitive Men Rising, the first film for highly sensitive men that seeks to open doorways to understanding and acceptance of this beautiful temperament trait in 30% of the world’s population.
An author of three publications, including Thrive: The Highly Sensitive Person and Career; Thrill: The High Sensation Seeking Highly Sensitive Person; and Empowering the Sensitive Male Soul, Dr. Cooper advocates for self-authorship, a conscious and creative leadership forging transformational reVisioning of self where we become creators of culture rather than mere consumers, curators of diverse narratives from across the globe, and mentors for those so desperately in need of guidance, encouragement, and healing. Dr. Cooper has had work published in the Journal Current Research in the Behavioral Sciences, The New York Times, Psychology Today, and numerous podcasts and articles.
Dr. Cooper has a Ph.D. in Transformative Learning and Change, an M.L.S. in Social Science and Leadership Studies, a certificate in Community Development and Advanced Training in the Concept, Measurement & Research on Sensory Processing Sensitivity with Dr. Elaine Aron. As a Professor in the Doctor of Education in Leadership in Higher Education at Baker University Graduate School of Education, he leads and mentors numerous doctoral candidates down the pathway of changing lives through higher education leadership.
Serving on the board of Greenville, SC non-profit Walt’s Waltz, Dr. Cooper continues to elevate discussion aimed at demystifying and destigmatizing mental health and wellness, reducing suffering, and, ultimately, reducing suicides, especially in men. As an ambassador for 1340.org, he co-partners with Dr. Michele Mercer to envision a future where conscious and creative leadership intersects with multiple and complex layers of personal and professional navigational ambiguities, with a Creative Inquiry always at the fore of their innovative efforts to LEAD, HEAL, TRANSFORM, and CONNECT seekers with their own inner voices that intuitively guide them to personally meaningful and impactful experiences.
