Stressful situations can be all too common in the workplace, but how do we manage our emotional response while keeping things professional?

Join us for a 90-minute interactive online workshop to uncover the nature of our emotions and how they play out in our work environment. The class curriculum is based on over two decades of direct research at the Stanford Psychophysiology Laboratory on emotions and emotion regulation.

You will gain a better understanding of how to manage your emotions as well as concrete tools and skills you can use right away in your daily life. Specifically, you will leave with a useful model for thinking about your feelings, strategies for regulating them, and hands-on practice using these tools in a visit to the “emotion regulation gym.” This is a participatory workshop, so please come prepared to interact with others in an open, honest, and respectful way.

Instructor: James Gross, PhD, is a professor of psychology at Stanford University. He directs the Stanford Psychophysiology Laboratory and his research focuses on emotion regulation. He has received a number of teaching awards and has over 450 publications. He earned his BA in philosophy from Yale University and his PhD in clinical psychology from the University of California, Berkeley.

Facilitator: Marily Oppezzo, PhD, MS, RD, is a behavioral and learning scientist with a master’s in the fields of nutritional science and almost 20 years of experience in nutrition and exercise as an instructor, coach and researcher. She received a PhD in education psychology at Stanford and did her post-doctoral training at the Stanford Prevention Research Center on health behavior change.
