BY Four Arrows (Wahinkpe Topa), PHD Doctoral faculty, School of Leadership Studies November 25, 2020 Want a different ethic? Tell a different story. – Thomas King Cultures from around the world have long celebrated harvest time with festivals and food sharing. They typically help bind people together. Sadly, the American version of Thanksgiving can be seen otherwise. Most of the November feast's historical iterations, right up to it becoming a formal national holiday in 1941 after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, are not really harvest celebrations. Instead, Thanksgiving stories provide a cover for anti-Indianism in the United States. The usual tale [...]
BY PAM RUTLEDGE, PHD Doctoral faculty, Media Psychology November 24, 2020 8 steps to emotional connection online and offline.

Zoom is so prevalent that “Zoom” is now synonymous with video conferencing. The use of Zoom and other digital communications tools has skyrocketed given the number of people working and living in relative isolation due to COVID precautions and lockdowns. So many of us are Zooming (yes, it’s now a verb, too) that we are experiencing a new form of burnout: Zoom fatigue. Let’s face it. Zooming can be exhausting—and for good reasons. The numbers are impressive from a [...]

Christophe Morin, PHD Adjunct faculty, Media Psychology Novemeber 9, 2020 A new book revealing how you can use brain plasticity to lower your symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression? Until I turned 50, I was not the kind of person who would typically seek to experience altered states of consciousness or even seriously consider the value of spirituality.

Nor had I ever entirely accepted the idea of “Spirit” or dared to use the word "God" unless discussing a movie or [...]
