May 14, 2014 - “Your Brain on Conflict”
Speaker: Dr. Julie Sasscer-Burgos, Psy.D., Deputy Chief,
Occupational Health Environmental and Safety Services, National Security Agency
In this workshop we will discuss basic brain structures and functions - how they affect behavior and are affected by behavior. We will also discuss neurotransmitters that are important in both producing and interpreting behavior. This knowledge will form the basis for a discussion of how we can influence behavior during times of conflict. We will take typical situations faced by managers and employees, and apply the knowledge of neuroscience to guide us towards more satisfying and effective interactions.
