Join SIMDFW for a cocktail hour (drinks and appetizers) and a presentation on Wired for Storytelling: The Neuroscience of Narrative, How Stories Influence and Impact the Brain with Dee O’Neill, a speaker, author, coach, licensed professional counselor and a Board Certified Fellow in Neurofeedback.

How do our brains enable us to tell and follow stories? And how do stories affect our minds?

Discuss the cognitive processes involved in constructing and exchanging stories, exploring their role in the neurobiology of mental, emotional, and social experiences.

Participating in the session will allow you to:

  • Explore how stories change brain science and behavior; during both hearing and telling stories
  • Expand understanding of what gets in the way of both the attention and emotional arousal of listeners
  • Experience two key strategies to harness the power of storytelling to connect and communicate impactfully to inspire action
