POWER OF POSITIVITY: Mind, Brain & Body

2 Week Virtual Workshop
THURSDAY, MARCH 24TH & 31ST

PRESENTER: Dr. Kristen Betts, Drexel University, School of Education

This 2-week workshop focuses on the link between positivity and health. Research studies have found that having a positive attitude can improve outcomes across an array of heath conditions, mindset, and productivity. This workshop examines the effects of stress on the body, brain, and memory. We will explore how positivity can assist in reducing heart rate and blood pressure during stressful situations and how positivity can assist with grief. Research will be shared on emotional contagion, the important role of community, and how emotions can effect well-being. Throughout the two weeks, a checklist and practices will be shared that can be applied to integrate the power of positivity to support a healthy mind, brain, and body.
