Christina Karns, Ph.D., received her doctorate in Neuroscience from the University of California, Berkeley. At the University of Oregon, where she is currently a research assistant professor in the psychology department, she has directed neuroimaging projects with children, teens, and adults with and without disability to clarify how attention and self-regulation support healthy neural development. This work has provided foundation for evidence-based interventions that utilize the neuroplasticity of emotions and cognition to support people in positive and healthy interactions with society and each other.

Have you wondered about how different brain systems work together to support kindness? Have you wondered whether there are tools to help us feel more generous, compassionate, and altruistic as we manage our stress as parents? I’ll discuss the latest research with interactive exercises to help us practice what we preach.
Learning Objectives

  1. Learners will be able to understand how different brain systems work together to support gratitude and altruism, lowering stress.
  2. Learners will practice positive self-care exercises.
  3. Learners will adapt practices to their own experience and to various age groups and abilities.
