Humor Improv Therapist [2007 – 2013]
Los Angeles County Dept. of Mental Health
Brook was trained in Comedy Improvisation by The Second City. Since then he has made unique contributions as an expert in both the entertainment and behavioral health fields. In 2011 the UCLA Center for Health Services and Society produced a short documentary about him: “Learning Trust Through Art”.
Clinic staff and clients said that Brook reminded them of Patch Adams [https://www.patchadams.org], the doctor who is a clown as part of his bedside manner. Brook sent the UCLA documentary to Patch in 2012, and Patch invited him to teach a weeklong program in 2014 at Patch’s Gesundheit! Institute.
