Ruth M. Bowdish Speaking Topics

  • Positive Psychology: The Science of Being Happy

    The Science of Happiness: A Look at Positive Psychology on the Job All too often what we’re experiencing at work carries to our personal life or vice versa, and we can’t escape the growing negativity surrounding us. This negativity can influence how, or even if, we succeed at home or work. This presentation teaches how to harness the power of shifting one’s perspective to increase the potential for happiness in many of our everyday behaviors and subsequently teaching others to do the same.

  • America’s Addiction

    An understanding of the disease of addiction and how it’s affecting our workplaces.

    This is a look at how addiction is forming and shaping the future of America. Addiction is a complex situation that is often misunderstood and carries with it a stigma of shame, weakness and guilt. The opioid epidemic continues to ravage our society but addiction is now being seen with increased marijuana usage, cocaine use and the most deadly drug, alcohol. With so many substances readily available, how can we best protect ourselves, our co-workers and our loved ones if we continue to misunderstand and diminish the magnitude of addiction and substance use disorders in America? We are learning more and more about addiction but still so much is misunderstood, with the prevalence of drug use hitting all time highs, it is time we finally understood what this disease is and how we can work together to create a sober tomorrow. We will look at emerging data in addiction studies as well as the physiological ramifications of continued substance use.
