  Strengthening Your Inner Life in Challenging Times
   March 6th 2015 | Fordham University | Rose Hill O'Keefe Commons


presented by  Robert J. Wicks, Psy.D.
 
One of the greatest gifts we can share with others is a sense of our own peace.  However, we can’t share what we don’t have.  By discussing spiritual and psychological approaches to maintaining perspective and inner strength in challenging times, Dr. Wicks, an expert on the prevention of secondary stress (the pressures experienced in reaching out to others), offers insights into how we can live in peace and, in turn, extend our warmth to others without losing our own inner fire in the process.  Topics will include: “unlearning,” maintaining a sense of perspective, ordinariness, chronic and acute secondary stress, developing a self-care protocol, knowing the “voices” we need in our circle of friends to have balance and courage in life, depth self-awareness, inner darkness, and improving mindfulness.  Practical, illustrative, lively, this rich presentation will provide essential information on professional resilience and personal well-being.
