Overcoming Failure: Surviving and Thriving
Howard Scot Warshaw, MA ‘11
Failure, disappointment, and lost hopes/dreams are very common these days, particularly in the Silicon Valley neighborhood. Brutal job demands, unmet career goals, I-P-NOs. Our relationships suffer as does our sense of fulfillment. This takes a toll on our happiness and well-being (and also our immune systems). Learn to reset a positive orientation, refueling passion and joy. Howard Warshaw will remind you that failure is not an end, it is a launching point!
Inner Game: Mastering the Art of Golf... and LIFE
Dr. Mat Park, PsyD ‘12
Enhanced performance in any sport, but particularly in golf, requires understanding and mastering the way personality and mental processes determine particular outcomes. Expert golfer and high performance coach, Mat Park, will assist you in your own personal mastery of the mental game of golf, in sport, and in life. You must be prepared to take the shot well in advance of stepping up to the tee... or to your next step in life.
Detecting Malingering in Therapy and Legal Assessment
Dr. Peter Van Oot
Whenever someone has something to gain from being impaired, the tendency to “malinger” exaggerates their difficulties. Their gain can come from financial settlements, SSDI, Worker's compensation benefits, better prison housing, custody arrangements, medical treatments, divorce settlements, etc. Dr. Van Oot, a member of the faculty of the Clinical Psychology program, will share how to recognize and document when someone is suspected of this fraud.
