Women in Dentistry Leadership Series
Why do negative events seem to stick in our heads so much longer than positive ones? And is there anything we can do about it? Behavioral science research suggests that the human mind may be wired to look for negative information and to hold onto it. This tendency for our minds to tilt toward the negative has important consequences for understanding how people react in the face of stress and negative events. The good news is that we can also retrain our brains—if we put some effort into it—so that we start to weigh the good and the bad a little more evenhandedly. Join Dr. Alison Ledgerwood, professor and Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of California, Davis and popular TEDx speaker, to harness a better understanding of how you think and improve your life.
