Join us for a Mitchell-Reed Community of Learners lecture at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29 in the West Library Orientation Room.  

Mike Bishop, associate professor of graduate counseling, will present Me and My Gremlin: Addressing Self-defeating Behaviors. Have you ever wondered why you do the things you do? Why do you feel the way you do?  Why do you keep doing self-defeating behaviors over and over again? We all have a little Gremlin sitting on our shoulder whispering things into our ears lobbying how you should act, think and feel. No, you do not need medication; it is a common human occurrence. Come learn how your gremlin influences you to fail and how to combat its influence in your life, work and relationships.
