  1. Gain knowledge about the human brain: how it grows, how it is injured, how it repairs and how it fails to repair. 
  2. Collaborate with group members and share past experiences related to injured brains. Participant’s past duties as administrators, teachers, parents, law enforcement agents, clergy, health care providers, and counselors cross educate through their experiences. The collaboration strengthens understanding of local resources and the skills within different professions in the community. 
  3. Learn how brains are injured and what are the first steps to repairing an injured brain. 
  4. Gain knowledge on health, behavioral, and psychological risks associated with drug use. 
  5. Assess their own brains and through sleep, meditation, and other activities.  
  6. Empower participants to use their educated voices within their communities.



Participants will be able to identify and discuss:

  1. General scientific accepted facts on the continuum of substance use versus abuse
  2. The types and effects of depressant abuse
  3. The types and effects of stimulant abuse
  4. The types and effects of hallucinogen abuse
  5. Age, gender, and cultural differences related to the substance of choice.


Participants will be able to identify:

  1. The parts of the brain and their functions
  2. The parts of the neuron and their functions
  3. The human condition, drugs, and neuro-adaptation


Participants will be able to identify and discuss:

  1. Recognize behaviors the impede brain healing
  2. List symptoms caused by brain swelling
  3. Name the three major categories of drugs and how they impact the brain
  4. Understand what adds risk to the developing brain
  5. Their own brain development and where they may have had ideal or less than ideal brain maturation. 


By the end of the workshop, participants will develop the first phase of a treatment plan for chronic alcoholism.  This citizen is cycling through the criminal justice system due to recurrent alcohol addiction.  The participants will be able to: 

  1. Think through the policies needed for recovery of a brain injury.
  2. Defend their choice in the policy over other good choices. 
  3. Identify resources that accurately and efficiently assess the levels of brain repair needed.

Life Changing

Dr. Boz packs years of study and experience with broken brains into lessons I can understand. I learned I am hurting my brain by not getting enough sleep. I can help my brain by taking actions to my increase BDNF! Thank you, Dr. Boz, for teaching me about BDNF. You give me hope by showing me that a few small changes can make a big difference in the way I feel and the actual shape and functioning of my brain.

Brain From Trauma to Repair

I have been in healthcare as a nurse and family nurse practitioner for 32 years, and yet this was NEW information to me! It was well worth the money. I will watch it again and again and find ways to apply the information to help people. I will keep sharing the information with friends/family. I keep imagining how I am going to share it on a larger scale. My mind is spinning with great ideas. Thanks Dr.Boz.

This review is for the BRAINS: Trauma to Repair Course that I attended in Pella, Iowa and purchased after the fact. This course, researched, created and presented by Dr. Annette Bosworth, lovingly known as Dr. Boz, is brilliant! This course was so well researched, organized, easy to understand and fun that my attention never wavered throughout the two days. Dr. Boz is a great storyteller and uses a lot of personal examples and class participation; that method of teaching has always helped me retain what I am being taught which allows me to teach it later, using my own stories. Her excitement is contagious! I look forward to facilitating my own Zoom Classes to get this crucial information out! Between this Course and Dr. Boz's Keto Continuum Course, I am living the quote Roger Sperry shared in an acceptance speech for a Nobel Prize for Brain Study, "The great pleasure and feeling in my right brain is more than my left brain can find the words to tell you." That is exactly how I feel. Thank you, Dr. Boz. You are a breath of fresh and I'm going to continue breathing it all in!

Rollin Davis 5/29/22 Progress Report

I first discovered Dr Boz on YouTube in October 2019 through my interest in the keto diet. Her style of presentation on YouTube brought more clarity to the science behind its benefits. The Dr. Boz channel was where I learned the method used to track the ratio between ketones and glucose in my blood. When she came to Tampa mid-2020, I was on a path that was taking me slowly away from keto and back into danger. I was fortunate to join her first Tampa support group connected to her “Consistently Keto” program. This experience saved me.
When Dr. Boz announced her Brains course, I was extremely interested, but a little hesitant because of the cost, and it would force me to give up my favorite golf day for zoom meetings just as the support group had done. I wasn’t disappointed. I finished the Brains course six months ago. After a half century struggling with alcohol abuse, and its effects on my brain, for the first time in my life I am in control, because I understand the science. No other doctor or teacher in my life has given me this confidence.
You can trust Dr Boz!

Message of HOPE!

Dr. BOZ:

This is the 3rd time that I have taught this curriculum inside an adolescent treatment facility. Due to discharges that are sporadic in the facility, most clients do not get the entire curriculum, but I have found a way to provide a review of certain modules so that the majority of the curriculum is covered. These teenagers are engaged, active and they do hear the message of HOPE - that they can repair their brains!

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and passion through this platform! You are appreciated!

The clients "loved" the South Dakota connection! You are changing lives!

The incredible Dr. Boz BRAINS COURSE

Thank you Dr. Annette Bosworth for making this course.
BRAINS: From Trauma To Repair!
To anyone considering this course I say Wow! I have learned so much. I realize that there is much information that I have never heard before packed inside this course. Dr. Boz is truly an expert on what helps or hurts the brain, and importantly, what HEALS the brain.

Some of the things in life that I had a "sense' that were harmful, were explained in this course. People close to me would argue that certain things were not harmful, while I intuitively had a sense they were not good for the human body, yet I had no words to explain why I was being cautionary. Also because I did not have the knowledge, I have fallen victim to mistakes that undoubtedly harmed my brain... but NOW after going through all of these modules, I realize that this is very serious for the development and HEALING of brains from cradle to grave. I want to share it with those I love. I look forward to watching the modules again, and reading from wealth of resources that Dr. Bosworth has shared within this course. Knowledge is power.

Dr. Boz has explained methods to help my brain to slow down to get better healing sleep. Also she has taught me ways to exercise in short spurts that actually helps my hippocampus, which I never understood the power of prior to this education. The fact that a brain can heal and improve with certain processes is incredible!

This course was worth the price tag, and will change the trajectory of my life forever. Also, I hope to be more confident when talking to others about the effect of certain actions and consumptions have on the brain. I desire to learn more and go deeper with my understanding, and share with others.

Dr. Boz, thank you, thank you, thank you! Your dedication to help others and compassion for those you help has inspired me greatly. May God bless you and yours for generations to come because of your love, care and actions!

I feel more self-empowered to fix the damage I've done to my brain than ever before.

I knew all along that some of my life choices and habits were negatively impacting my life. I didn't realize how much impact they were making.

With this newfound knowledge, I feel more capable of facing the hard times that come with removing those habits and dealing with the hardships that come as I face a life of sobriety. I know it won't be easy, but it will be more manageable knowing that there is hope for my brain to repair the damage I've done to it.

I also now have children in my life and I feel I owe it to them to give them a better chance at success in life than I gave myself. I wish more people knew the truth about some of the socially acceptable pastimes that are damaging their brains.

I have begun to inform my friends what I've learned and will encourage them to make choices that enable their brains to have a better chance at healing. I've also been sharing this with every parent I know - especially those with younger children.

Thank you, Dr. Boz for all the work you do and all the content you produce so that those of us who would never otherwise have a chance are able to learn the deeper truth around how to care for our brains and not just our "health."

Brains from Trauma to Repair

WOW! Its hard to put in a few paragraphs what this course has meant to both my husband and myself. We had noticed increasing brain difficulties and I kept feeling nudged to enroll in the course. I am so glad we did. it answered so many questions, some that we didn't even know we had. The information is invaluable, not only for ourselves but for those close to us. We plan on sharing the course with interested close friends and family and maybe for some youth groups we are affiliated with. The zoom meetings were certainly an added bonus, such individualized attention and getting to know our group members.

It’s Never Too Late

All my adult life I prided myself that I didn’t require 8 hours of sleep or so I thought.
I started the Ketogenic diet in the summer of 2018, and that’s when I started following Dr. Boz. She would always say to remember when you are not motivated to continue eating keto, what is your why? I would always say it was for anti-inflammation, and she would say for strengthening her brain. It wasn’t until I took this course that I understood why she was so passionate about strengthening her brain. After taking this class I understand the importance of sleep for a child’s development and for the health of our brains as we get older plus so much more. I am so thankful for Dr. Boz and how generous she is with sharing her knowledge. Thank you, Dr. Boz, may God bless you for your servants heart.
