Feeling burned out? Is anxiety overwhelming your life? Learn all about the theoretical implications of stress and how to cope with it. Susan Folkman, an internationally recognized professor of medicine from the University of California, San Francisco will speak about "Beyond Distress: Positive Emotions and the Stress Process," at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11, in the Burton D. Morgan Center Lecture Hall (150 Ridge Road) on Denison's campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.
During the event, which is sponsored by Denison's psychology department, Folkman will discuss her research on applying a bio-psycho-social perspective to disease and wellness. Her most recent work has focused on the coping strategies and outcomes of people with HIV disease, breast cancer and other chronic illnesses and the experience of stress and bereavement among their families and caregivers.
