Faculty and staff Assistance Program: Mindset Matters

Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 12 – 1pm Mindset Matters A person's usual attitude, or mental state, is his or her mindset. Our mindsets help us spot opportunities but they can trap us in self-defeating cycles. This seminar will discuss Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck’s work on the differences between a “growth mindset,” the belief that you are in control of your own abilities, and can learn and improve, and a “fixed mindset,” a belief that basic qualities, like intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. Research shows that it’s the way one thinks about her or his own abilities that really counts. Attend this seminar to learn ways of cultivating a growth mindset. This seminar will be facilitated by a University of Miami FSAP Consultant.
