Julien Blanc discussion on 'Waking Up In Vegas' with guest Jared 'Psych' Lawrence
Michael Sartain | On 12, Nov 2014
Dating coach Jared ‘Psych’ Lawrence joins Tiffany Masters and Michael Sartain on ‘Waking Up In Vegas’ to discuss the Julien Blanc controversy. Julian Blanc is a pick up artist who has been accused by certain feminist groups of teaching men misogynistic and manipulative tactics. News and blog sites have been buzzing with all week with this story. Articles about Julien have appeared in Forbes, Time Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, LA Weekly, The UK Guardian, The BBC, BuzzFeed, Salon.com and The UK Daily Mail.
The controversy began when a video depicting Julien Blanc grabbing Japanese women by the hair and pushing their heads down appeared on Twitter. Tiffany begins the show by talking about YouTube videos she’s been watching showing pick up instructors teaching seminars and doing infield training. Jared talks about where a lot of the pick up terminology comes from and what some of the marketing methods are.
Michael contacted Owen Cook, co-founder of Real Social Dynamics, to ask for information about this contreversy. Owen stated that: 1. RSD gives 20 minutes of consent training before every seminar. 2. There are two fake Twitter accounts pretending to be from Julien Blanc, one with a lower case “j” and one with an upper case “I” in place of the “L.” 3. Woman can and do attend RSD’s infield and seminar training for free. 4. There has never been a complaint filed against Julien Blanc or any other RSD instructor by a woman that they’ve approached. 5. The video posted by protesters fails to show that the girls were laughing before and after Julien pushed their head down. Michael goes on to state that, even if there was consent and that video was taken out of context, it’s still irresponsible to put something like that on YouTube.

About Jared ‘Psych’ Lawrence:
Jared Laurence is an international motivational speaker, confidence coach, and dating coach with a strong background in psychology, therapy, and dating dynamics. It didn’t quite start out that way, though. As a youth, he was both the shortest in his class and overweight — at one point weighing over 230lbs. His hobbies were relegated to Magic the Gathering, Marvel comics, and Star Wars. Battling loneliness and depression, he turned to anti-depressants before finally hitting rock bottom — where he sought hypnosis as a way to forget his troubles.
With nowhere to go but up, he began a journey of transformation that ultimately ended with him losing 50lbs, traveling the world, and systematically improving every aspect of his life until he became unrecognizable from his former self. His body language changed. His posture improved. His social skills transformed. His confidence grew. Gone were the days of being terrified of women, dateless, and lonely on Saturday nights. Even to his parents and co-workers, Jared was a changed man. He exuded the confidence, charisma, and je ne sais quoi that had always eluded him. He eventually found himself helping and motivating others to do the same for themselves, going on to teach for some of the largest dating coaching companies in the world.
Laurence is also classically trained in therapy, psychology, and counseling. No stranger to helping those in distress, he has worked at a suicide and crisis hotline center before eventually becoming a dating and confidence coach. Today his coaching utilizes both cutting-edge, proprietary techniques as well as established psychological and behavioral tools including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Behavioral Conditioning, and Psychodynamic coaching.
Laurence is currently a senior instructor with BecomeSharp.com.
