What do you do during class when a classmate says something that upsets or angers you? Do you get “hooked” by your emotion – however justified - and find it hard to respond or to concentrate in class afterward? Does this impact your performance in class and ability to learn? Does this happen outside the classroom as well?
What if you could learn to re-focus your emotional response to what another person said AND AT THE SAME TIME engage constructively with that person on the point they raised?
It won’t happen overnight, but you can develop your social resilience through mindfulness practices. During this lunch, Law Professor Rhonda Magee will show you how these practices can be used to help you meet conflict and controversy with personal strength in the classroom and beyond.
Lunch will be served.
