Wright State Physicians Family Medicine will offer an educational session about self-control on Thursday, July 14, 7 to 8:30 p.m., in classroom 1 on the second floor of the Wright State Physicians Health Center on the campus of Wright State University. The session is free and open to the public.
The speaker is Paul Hershberger, Ph.D., a clinical health psychologist. He is a professor of family medicine and director of behavioral science for the Family Medicine Residency Program at the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine. His clinical practice includes psychotherapy, consultation and coaching.
Hershberger will lead a discussion about self-control, an important resource associated with success in many life endeavors. He will talk about how self-control is a limited resource. It can be depleted, replenished and strengthened. Because most of human behavior is automatic, automaticity and self-control can be used to promote health.
This session is part of the “Brain Matters” educational series, which focuses on building resilience with attention given to factors regarding sleep, exercise, diet, anger management and healthy relationships.
