Thursday, April 23, 2007 - 7 PM
Cunniff Lecture Hall (Science Center 199)
Suitable for teenagers, college students, and adults
All from the College and the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District communities are welcome.
All of us get stuck thinking negatively from time to time. Negative thinking supersizes our problems by exaggerating their importance and impact. It also creates emotional hurdles that often hinder us--children to adults--from overcoming obstacles and achieving success. Dr. Chansky, author of Freeing Your Child from Negative Thinking: Powerful, Practical Strategies to Build a Lifetime of Resilience, Flexibility and Happiness, identifies creative and effective solutions to "right-size" problems, manage negative thoughts, build optimism, and establish emotional resilience. Come for a hands-on, nuts-and-bolts presentation of a theoretically-based approach. Learn about the tricks the negative brain can play and, more importantly, techniques you can use to outsmart them.
