OBSSR Director's Webinar Series (9/27/22)

We are facing global challenges including intertwined mental health crises, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, spikes in our collective blood pressure, more frequent and severe climate disasters, and the anxiety that comes with all of this. How do we maintain wellness and a sense of well-being in the face of all of these challenges? Dr. Falk will present findings from her recent interdisciplinary work in neuroscience, psychology, and communication science, aimed at understanding pieces of this question. She will highlight purpose in life as one psychological resource linked to wellness behaviors and describe how sharing with other people can serve as a vehicle to shift norms related to wellness.
