Psychological Flexibility as a Cornerstone of Wellbeing: An Experiential Workshop
Start Date: 10/24/2017Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 10/24/2017End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description
Psychological flexibility is our ability to recognize and adapt to various situations and shift both our mind and body towards the people and actions that are important to us. This workshop will offer an introduction to the psychological flexibility model in a manner that is accessible and can be applied to daily life. Participants will gain insight into how trying to get away from internal discomfort can keep us from living a meaningful and vital life. Participants will be assisted in noticing their ability to move towards what is important to them and how to create curiosity and kindness for difficult thoughts and feelings.  Come experience how psychological flexibility can help you live a more meaningful and vital life.
