Focus Area: Resiliency in the Workplace

This year AAPS celebrates UBC’s Thrive Week by talking brain science.

Program Summary

90% of what we know about the brain has been learned in the last 2 years and yet most people never think much about their brains. You simply trust your brain to do its job.

Brain dysfunction is the #1 reason people fail work and relationships. Your brain is the supercomputer that runs your life. This session has 2 bottom lines: when your brain works right, you work right and everyone needs a little help.

When you look after your brain, the results are amazing. This session will give you the tools to boost your brain power, improve your thinking, and improve your health. It is based on the latest cutting-edge neuroscience research.

What you will learn:

  • the #1 job of your brain
  • how to eat right, to think right
  • how to get rid of negative thoughts
  • the #1 food for your brain (you probably don't eat this right now)
  • how to improve your reading skills
  • how to improve your memory
  • how to outwit Alzheimer's disease
  • the 3 things every  brain must have

How you will learn:

  • Lectures
  • Group Discussions
  • Self-Reflection


This session is designed to give AAPS members practical tips and techniques for improving their resiliency in the workplace using brain science. Not sure if this session is right for you? Please contact sarah.muff@ubc.ca.
