Wednesday, February 07, 2018 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Student Recreation Center Basketball Courts

Participate and engage in yoga, mindfulness, and self-compassion practices, learn about the research behind these practices, and understand how these practices can impact individuals with antisocial personality disorder and those who have committed violent crimes. 

The practices and research will be led and presented by Dr. Richard Morley, senior lecturer in The School of Criminal Justice, and Dr. Erika K. Nielson, Common Reading coordinator. Dr. Morley holds a doctorate in educational psychology from the University of Texas. Dr. Morley's research focus relates to the impact of mindfulness meditation on criminality, aggression, antisocial behavior, and brain networks associated with violence. Dr. Nielson has taught yoga for over 16 years and researches mindfulness-based practices with students in PK-16.

Please bring a yoga mat if you have one; a limited number of mats will be available at the event.
