After one of today’s events we received this great comment from a happy customer:
Thank you very much for the Hula Hooping for Fitness break today! My colleague and I had such a great time. It was very hard to justify leaving our desks, especially with overwhelming amounts of work that needs attention. I’m back at my desk with the same overwhelming work, but I’m much happier doing it now that I’ve hooped and laughed a bit.

The Walking Non-Group
Daily, at locations throughout Cambridge
A self-formed group of employees who get together to take a walk during lunch or other time of day. Teams are formed informally just by asking a co-worker along or contacting one of the established groups. Take a look at the attached “Spotlight” from last year for information. The highlighted group uses its walks to get fresh produce from the Davis Square farmer’s market each Wednesday…ingenious!
This time last year, I didn’t feel good. I was uncomfortable in my body and completely out of shape. When I launched The Anti-Diet Project, it was with the intention of releasing disordered eating, the diet mindset, and — hopefully — my excess weight. It wasn’t about getting skinny, but I
Foam rolling has become a widely-practiced activity—and that’s a good thing. But […] there’s a need for mindfulness. It’s actually a more nuanced technique than one might think. Some fans warm up using techniques that are best saved for post-workout roll-outs (or avoided altogether); others neglect to mix up their approach and thus risk a foam-rolling plateau of sorts. Here are the four most common mistakes and Stanley’s tips to correct them.
We tend to think of unplanned pregnancy as the result of failure to use birth control — rather than failure of birth control itself. (And, at least some of the cultural judgment of unplanned pregnancy arises from the perception that those parents are reckless or irresponsible.) At the same time, we know that using one of the dozens of contraceptive methods available doesn’t ensure pregnancy won’t occur.
Read through for a link to NYT interactive chart illustrating effectiveness of birth control methods over time.
Most scientists who study emotions focus on negative states: depression, anxiety, fear. Psychologist Barbara Fredrickson has spent more than 20 years investigating the relatively uncharted terrain of positive emotions, which she says can make us healthier and happier if we take time to cultivate them.

Tomorrow! “Speak About It” - healthy relationships, sexual assault prevention
You are all cordially invited to attend the “Speak About It” presentation regarding issues related to Title IX. Lesley is committed to the health and safety of all students, faculty, and staff.
“Speak About It” – Skits September 16, 2014 at 1:00, 4:00, and 7:00 p.m. in Marran Theater
Speak About It is a performance-based presentation about consent, boundaries and healthy relationships that is designed specifically for a college audience. Using a combination of humorous yet provocative skits, interactive dialogue, and powerful monologues, Speak About It is an hour-long performance that addresses consent, sexual assault, and bystander intervention. Each of the actors in the five-person show undergoes sexual assault training and speaks passionately, onstage and off, about the importance of sexual assault prevention. Speak About It is the wisdom of an array of mistakes, misfortunes, successes, and perspectives; a compilation of true stories that captures what healthy sex can and should look like, and how to spark dialogues about it.
This post is about meetings at your job, but these tips also make sense in other contexts, like in the classroom or working groups for school projects, pretty much in any group situation.
Being happy at work is important, of course. Being with other people generally boosts mood, and ideally, meetingsshould be a source of energy, ideas, and collegiality.
But it doesn’t always work out that way. Meetings are also a place where people jockey for position, work out disagreements (nicely or not-so-nicely), and hurt each other’s feelings.
If you’re feeling annoyed or undermined at a meeting, consider whether any of these strategies are being aimed at you. And if you don’t want to annoy or undermine other people, avoid talking this way:
1. “I don’t need all the details. Let’s just get to the bottom line.” The speaker implies that others are quibblers and small-minded technicians, while deflecting the possible need to master complicated details himself.
2. “Well, these are the facts.” The speaker emphasizes that she attends to hard facts, while implying that others are distracted by prejudice, sentiment, or assumption.
3. “You might be right.” The speaker seem open-minded while simultaneously undermining someone else’s authority and credibility.
4. “I’m wondering about ____. Pat, please get back to us on this.” The speaker demonstrates his habit of reasoned decision-making, while making Pat (who may not actually report to him) do the necessary work and report back.
5. “You did a great job on that, Pat!” The speaker shows a positive attitude, while showing that she’s in the position to judge and condescend to Pat. (I must admit, I remember one incident where I did this very consciously. I was furious at someone, and at the next big meeting that we both attended, I gushingly complimented him in a way that drove him nuts.)
6. “I think what Pat is trying to say is…” The speaker shows that he’s a good listener and give credit to others, while demonstrating that he can take Pat’s simple thought further than Pat could.
7. “I can see why you might think that.” Variant: “I used to think that, too.” The speaker sounds sympathetic, while indicating that she’s moved far ahead in understanding.
Of course, a person could say all these things without being undermining. It depends on context and motivation. Still, it’s useful to think about how seemingly innocuous comments might carry an edge.
What other actions make you unhappy in a meeting? When two people write each other notes or whisper, when someone is obviously reading unrelated material, when people argue about philosophical matters irrelevant to the matter at hand, or surreptitiously check a phone? What am I forgetting? (For tips for running a good meeting, check here. For more ideas about how to be happier at work, check here.)
Year by year, person by person, working together, students and faculty creatively impacted life in Israel, developing “The Lesley Way” for generations of therapists, educators and social activists to follow.

Codes on Canvas 5: Holocausts, Data Collection and Apathy
Art Exhibit by: Simone Alter-Muri, Artist & Alumna, and R. Bruce Cannon, Artisan
Exhibit: August 28 - October 5
Exhibit Opening Reception: Friday, September 19, 2014 from 5-7pm
Marran Gallery, Margaret McKenna Student Center, Doble Campus (34 Mellen Street, Cambridge)
This newest exhibition integrates the dichotomies of data collection and apathy, and ponders the use and abuse of data collection in our lives. This work reveals depersonalization on multiple levels by juxtaposing similar images derived from a variety of sources. Disparate icons from the genocide of the Holocaust, ubiquitous barcodes, the scanning of irises of the eyes of the poor in India, and environmental concerns suggest their commonality despite apparent differences. The artist and artisan represent these phenomena through their common visual theme of lines and patterns.
CONFERENCE—Creative Visions: 40 Years of Expressive Therapies at Lesley University and Throughout the World
Saturday, September 20, 2014 — Conference 9:30 AM - 6:00 PM and Celebration 6:00 - 9:00pm
6 LMHC CEUs available, Registration required for conference and/or celebration
In 1974, The Institute for the Arts and Human Development, housing both Expressive Therapies and Creative Arts in Learning, was founded at Lesley University. The Expressive Therapies program established in that year was one of the original graduate programs in the United States to train professionals in the emerging arts therapy field and the first to integrate all of the arts. Forty years later, the Expressive Therapies program continues to push the boundaries of knowledge and training, and Lesley is celebrating this milestone anniversary by honoring alumni and their important contributions to the field. On Saturday, September 20, 2014, Lesley will welcome Expressive Therapies alumni from around the world for a daylong conference (6 LMHC CEUs), showcasing the work of the program’s diverse and creative graduates, culminating in an evening celebration. Come and join your classmates and faculty, and celebrate your achievements! The conference will consist of an opening with Shaun McNiff, Vivien Marcow Speiser, Mitchell Kossak and Dean Catherine Koverola; morning and afternoon keynote addresses by Laury Rappaport and Debra Kalmanowitz; a choice of morning and afternoon workshops; networking opportunities during lunch; and a poster session. The celebration will include dinner and dancing to the live band Blue Suede Boppers (featuring Lesley Class of ’83 alumni).
For those that taught and attended Lesley in the early days, and those interested in understanding this process, we invite you to gather together for a “Lesley experience,” a ritualized creation process with these exploratory inquiries as a guide: How do the embodied memories of the unique experience that we shared so deeply 30+ years ago live inside us today? What are the gifts that we still draw on? How has it taken root and come to life in rich and unexpected ways? We will meet and together and form a structure which holds us and gives us the room we need to emerge together. You do not need to bring anything additional, but if something calls to you—objects or symbols, visual images, instruments, music, writing, poems, stories—bring it along.
Vigil for Michael Brown & Victims of Police Brutality: Recognizing Racism in America Today
Members of the Lesley University community are invited to attend a Vigil for Michael Brown & Victims of Police Brutality: Recognizing Racism in America Today, hosted by Students for Social Justice.
Please join us on Friday, September 12th at the Doble Amphitheater (outside White Hall cafeteria) to mark not just Michael Brown’s death, but the violence faced by all victims of police brutality in this country. The vigil will begin at 6 P.M. and will be held inside the Student Center in case of rain.
On August 9, 2014, Michael “Mike” Brown, an unarmed teenager, was gunned down by a police officer in his hometown of Ferguson, Missouri. Mike was two days away from attending college. Since his death, his family has not only had to deal with the loss of their son, but the media has slandered Mike’s character, creating accusations that he was a thief or a “thug” or that the officer was acting in “self defense.” However, despite the heartbreaking circumstances surrounding Michael Brown’s death, his is not an isolated incident. Across the United States, police brutality has remained a devastating social problem, specifically towards black and African-American males. This incident must serve as a reminder that America is not yet free from institutionalized racism and prejudice, and we mourn the loss of Mike Brown and countless victims like him.

Lesley University revised its smoking policy effective August 1, 2011. The Brattle Campus is a “smoke-free” campus while LUCAD, Doble and Porter Campuses remain “designated area smoking only” campuses.
Six locations have been designated as smoking areas. Please view the campus maps
These locations were selected to protect the safety of smokers, to ensure that smoke does not filter into buildings, to protect neighboring properties and to provide access to designated smoking areas on the three campuses.
The designated smoking locations are:
At LUCAD/Boston Campus (700 Beacon Street and 601 Newbury Street) - Smoking will be limited to two areas of the sidewalk to the left of each front door (when exiting the building), far enough away to ensure that no smoke enters the building.
At the Brattle Campus - The Brattle Campus is a Non-Smoking campus. There is no designated smoking area and there is a zero tolerance for smoking on the Brattle Campus. This includes no smoking in any vehicle on the campus.
At the Doble Campus (Quad) - There are two designated smoking areas; the first is located at the foot of the stairs (to the left on the Doble side) on Mellen Street directly below the Quad and the other behind 11 Mellen Street and 16-18 Wendell Street near the fence.
At the Porter Campus - We have identified two designated smoking areas, one to the right of the back door (when entering the building) of U-Hall near the loading dock area but under cover and the second to the right (when entering) of the front door of 815 Somerville Avenue.
Please be sure to pick up any butts or trash in these designated areas.
Members of the community who violate the University Smoking Policy are required to provide their name and office location to Public Safety if requested. After an initial warning, anyone who chooses to disregard the designated smoking areas will be subject to progressive fines and other sanctions for their failure to smoke in the designated areas.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided please contact the appropriate office or Marylou Batt at mbattATlesley.edu.

not to make you all paranoid with this post, but this is a nice reminder to keep an eye on your finances:
In a little over a decade, ATM skimmers have gone from urban myth to a wildly complex, ever-evolving suite of technologies that has the potential to be the worst nightmare of anyone with a bank account. Here’s a look at how quickly skimmers have evolved—and why they’re increasingly impossible to spot.
Many students across the country went back to school this week, or are going back in the very near future.
While returning to the classroom is an exciting time, it can also be challenging for some— not because of homework, but because of bullying. The devastating effects of bullying can last into adulthood, but luckily there are resources to help you recognize when your child is being bullied, or is a bully himself.
A core value here at Lesley University is social justice - from the university’s mission statement, to academic programs, to staff committees, to student activities, and throughout nearly every corner of the institution.
This may be an atypical post from this blog, but I wanted to share some links I’ve collected recently which cover what’s been collectively called the Ferguson Syllabus:
#FergusonSyllabus @DrMChatelain began tweeting texts for #FergusonSyllabus. Many others joined with recommendations of texts as well as questions to pose to students at all levels from K-professional/grad schools. List being updated daily list being updated.

New Yorkers love to kvetch, and the MTA certainly provides them with plenty of opportunities. The subway may be a marvel of engineering, whisking 5.5 million riders between 468 stations, but being confined to a metal tube with strangers inevitably leads to tension and conflicts. Ask any commuter…

You’re probably not getting enough sleep, but you might not be as far off the mark as you think. Most sleep experts would offer that aiming for between seven to nine hours of snooze time a night is optimal for feeling refreshed and productive the next day. In a new report, however … researchers are closing in on what may just be that magic nightly number—and it’s not nine hours, or even eight as once believed… it’s seven hours of sleep.
The usual caveats apply, and these findings should be taken with a grain of salt. But the results are interesting—especially if you’re the kind of person who struggles with sluggishness throughout the day.
"The lowest mortality and morbidity is with seven hours," [says] Shawn Youngstedt, a professor in the College of Nursing and Health Innovation at Arizona State University Phoenix… "Eight hours or more has consistently been shown to be hazardous."
