Please join us for a lecture and discussion on health intervention research!
Date: Thursday, November 3, 12:30-1:30pm
Location: Colloquium Room (Room 14), J. Ray Ryan Building (Directions)
Presenter: Ross Buck, PhD (Communication Department)
The InCHIP Intervention Core is excited to announce a lecture and discussion being held on Thursday, November 3, about a type of intervention called Targeted Emotional Education Modules (TEEMs).
Professor Ross Buck from the UConn Communication Department will be presenting an introduction to the TEEMs concept, and will also host an informal discussion on how the TEEMs methodology can be used to create more effective health behavior interventions.
TEEMs is based on the idea that, when people are taught to accurately forecast, label, and understand their emotions, they have a higher level of emotional competence and are better able to control emotions that might otherwise lead to risky or irrational behaviors. TEEMs can be targeted towards any number of health behaviors, including safe sex, diet, exercise, and substance abuse.
For anyone interested in learning more about this potentially powerful intervention tool, the lecture will be held on Thursday, November 3, from 12:30-1:30pm, in the Colloquium Room (Room 14) in the J. Ray Ryan Building. You can RSVP for the lecture here. Attendees should feel free to bring ideas about how TEEMs might be integrated into their research program, and are encouraged to discuss possible areas of collaboration.
