Transformative Studies, PhD
School of Professional and Graduate Studies
During my time in the Ph.D. in Transformative Studies program I was able to expand my scholarly capabilities (research skills, transdisciplinary orientation, Creative Inquiry, Teaching Assistant); all of which indirectly led me to the activities I am engaged in today. I am the Program Chairman for the Master of Liberal Arts at Baker University where I oversee a cadre of scholars in an interdisciplinary, broad-based, applications-oriented graduate degree. I continue to conduct new research into multiple areas of relevance to highly sensitive people (those who have the personality trait Sensory Processing Sensitivity) and have written two books to date: Thrive: The Highly Sensitive Person and Career (2015) and Thrill: The High Sensation Seeking Highly Sensitive Person (2016). Additionally, I was invited to appear in the documentary film Sensitive-The Untold Story (2015). Following a multifaceted approach, I also have a website at drtracycooper.com where I offer consulting services for individuals in career transition and crisis as well as high sensation seeking highly sensitive people.
