EmpowHER Hour – New Semester, New Mindset – The Science of Creating Your Own Happiness

LET’S GO GIRLS – cue Shania. Join Caroline Crawford, Certified Positive Psychology Coach and Licensed Master Social Worker, for an upbeat virtual session on sparking your own joy. Our brains have a natural negative propensity. Therefore, our minds access our problems and failures faster than successes and opportunities. It’s easy to get weighed down by the stress, anxiety, and the what if’s of it all. But, we have the power to change that. It’s time to write your own happiness. This session will explore frameworks and ideas from research in Emotional Intelligence, Positive Psychology, and Self-Compassion. With vulnerable stories and lots of laughs, this will be a session you won’t want to miss.
