In our fast-paced lives, we often feel impatient. We want things done as quickly as possible and are intolerant of delays. This talk will look at the quality of patience from a psychological point of view including the concepts of delayed gratification, emotional intelligence, and self-control. Also included will be examples of when to be patient and when to take action.
Susan Cabrera has her master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Stanford with emphasis in behavior modification. She has been a counselor at the Stanford Institute for Behavioral Counseling and a clinical researcher at the Stanford Department of Psychiatry. Susan's poetry book Life in the Fast Lane will be available for sale after the talk.
