Raising Joy

Dr. Ellen Choi

This interactive webinar will expose participants to a series of micro-interventions that have been empirically shown to enhance positive emotions, such as joy, calm, and gratitude. As the pandemic continues to greatly impact both our personal and our professional lives leaving many of us struggling with our emotions, this workshop draws from cutting-edge research to offer practical ways anyone can increase joy.  Importantly, joy can be cultivated within one person, or between people when empathy and compassion are engaged. Building the muscle of joy and gratitude is a simple yet powerful way to connect more with ourselves and the people around us.

Loneliness and Social Connection

Dr. Ellen Choi

Despite the fact that the World Health Organization now lists “social support networks” as a determinant of health, the role of social connection in employee mental health is often overlooked.

Throughout the session participants will learn about the value of social support and engage in a series of breakout discussions and mindfulness exercises to build more authentic connections through empathy and compassion.
