The Upside of Stress is next M-A Parent Education topic

by Contributed Content on April 12, 2016

On Thursday, April 14 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, speak at the M-A Parent Education Series on “The Upside of Stress: Why Stress if Good for You and How to Get Good at It.” Seating is limited; register online.

While most of us do everything we can to reduce or avoid stress, Stanford psychologist Kelly McGonigal, PhD, delivers a startling message: Stress isn’t all bad. New research shows that stress can make us stronger, smarter, and happier-if we learn how to embrace it.

Dr. McGonigal is a health psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University. As a pioneer in the field of “science-help,” her mission is to translate insights from psychology and neuroscience into practical strategies that support personal well-being and strengthen communities.

She is the author of several books, including the international bestseller The Willpower Instinct and her latest book the The Upside of Stress. Her 2013 TED talk, “How to Make Stress Your Friend,” is one of the 20 most viewed TED talks of all time, with 10 million views.
