Join us for a talk by Dr. Luskin that focuses on optimism. True and lasting optimism is a hard earned approach that leads to a resilient life. It depends on our ability to be grateful for what we have, understand that our difficulties are part of the human experience, and forgive ourselves and others for disappointing and hurting us.
