Garry Earles is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, Black Belt martial artist and 19th Century American historian. He earned an MSW in Group & Family Methods from the University of Connecticut School of Social Work and an MA in History from Fitchburg State University (Massachusetts). Garry's personal co-morbid neuro-biological conditions (Tourette Syndrome, ADHD, OCD and bipolar disorder) present ongoing emotional and behavioral challenges.
Specializing in child and adolescent mental health, he is a seasoned and highly-rated national trainer, and a speaker and consultant for both mental health professionals and educational personnel. Garry has worked in various clinical settings from outpatient clinics, to residential treatment facilities, to community based programs. Garry's workshops are unique in that they utilize an "inside-out" perspective which deliver a message filled with resiliency and hope. Garry's insight and perseverance in dealing with his own conditions and a somewhat irreverent, though delightful sense of humor, insure a highly informative and entertaining workshop or public speaking event.
