How people think about their own personal futures is a key component of their well-being and mental health.

This talk will discuss the different kinds of ways that future-directed thinking breaks down in anxiety and depression, as well as in suicidal behaviour, where disruptions to future-directed thinking are probably most stark.

Understanding disruptions also offers the promise of interventions, and the talk will discuss strategies that might improve future-directed thinking.

No registration is required for this event. Please note that parking is limited.
