You will not want to miss this special interactive program. You will explore emerging research about brain's various regions and the way they work together during the decision-making process. Brain imaging and decision-making studies will be used to explain how we determine truth, intelligence, threat and competence. This course will offer solutions and tools to help you reduce or prevent the unwanted effects of unconscious association in decision making.

Speaker Kimberly Papillon is a nationally recognized expert in decision making in social services, medicine, law, business and education.

The day-long program is only $25 for Mental Health Connection members and $35 for non-members. The fee includes lunch, drinks and snacks.
