Presentation: 'Recognizing the Wisdom of the Body in Day-to-Day Mental Health'

Wednesday, 30 October, 2019

The Women's Commission will host a presentation by Christina Tisher, Ph.D., a licensed professional counselor with SLU's University Counseling Center at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Room 254, Busch Student Center.

Tisher will present “Recognizing the Wisdom of the Body in Day-to-Day Mental Health.” Tisher will discuss Polyvagal Theory, a model that describes the organization and function of the autonomic nervous system, and will explain how, by increasing our understanding of how the body works in response to a challenge, we can, in turn, write more accurate internal narratives about the situations we encounter in our lives.

Light refreshments will be provided.
