February 5th: Your Brain on Conflict: “Resistance is Fertile”
Guest: Scott Rogers
What happens in our brain when we are engaged in an emotionally-charged conflict?
Neuroscience or brain science has emerged with answers that help us begin to
understand the physiological, emotional, and cognitive impact on us in these types of
situations. One method for dealing with these intense situations is called mindfulness.
We will explore what mindfulness is and share tips for how to practically apply
techniques to manage conflict and the emotions you experience.
February 12th: Rewire Your Brain to Speak Your Mind
Guest: Anastasia Pryanikova
Every conflict contains a seed that in the right conditions can germinate into a new
understanding, deeper awareness, and creative possibilities. The inner workings of the
brain can advance or hinder this process. This program will explore implications of
current neuroscience research for communication, social interactions, conflict
management, and influence.
February 19th: Brains on Purpose: Traits and States to Shape Your Conflict Fate
Guest: Stephanie West Allen
Host: Zena Zumeta
Our brains are changing all the time. We can be in control of those changes or we can have
accidental brains, ruled by habit. Stephanie will show you how you can break bad
habits, set and reach goals, and maximize your ability to handle conflict through the
process of self-directed neuroplasticity. By using some basic techniques, you can take charge of how your brain changes. You can rewire your brain on purpose.
February 26th: The Juggling Brain: What Neuroscience Tells Us About How the Brain Manages
Guest: François Bogacz
Host: Stephen Kotev
We all have to manage conflicts in our brain on a daily basis, not only with others but
with ourselves: making the right decisions, choosing between options, between
objectives, allocating our time and resources, etc. Our session will cover what
neuroscience has to tell us about how the brain manages all of those conflicts and how
can we use those findings to improve our well-being and effectiveness from a social,
emotional and cognitive standpoint.
