This month's Positive Psychology Corner features some games!
The games are fun, a little bit challenging and based on research. They are designed to help you pay more attention to positive social information and create more positive associations. What we "tune into" in our environment can make a big difference in how we think and feel on a daily basis. Please enjoy the games and feel free to let us know what you think!

STUDENT COUNSELING SERVICES MONKEY BUSINESS
"Hi, I'm Abu. My previous owner dropped me on the back door step of the Student Health and Counseling Services. Here is how Dr. Lisa found me."
"The doctoral students here are also very nice and have a great sense of humor! This is Pam - I like her a lot!"
"This doctoral student's name is Adam, he is very funny and nice and I like him a lot too! He says I 'invalidated his assessment.' What does that mean?"
"Well, I was one scared little monkey when I got dropped off at the Student Health and Counseling Services...but I've had a pretty good day hanging around here. I hope, and think, they are going to take good care of me."
"Happily, the people in my new adoptive home seem pretty nice! Mrs. Bickerton was so kind, gave me my new name and a tour of the Center, here we are visiting Nurse Heidi."
"The W&J school nurses gave me a good check-up. They were so kind and it's nice to have a clean bill of health."
"Hi! I told Dr. Lisa I am feeling a little homesick. She said that's pretty normal for the first days in a new home. She said maybe it would help if I went to some campus activity. So I decided to go monkey around at the football game. I think it did help some! It was fun seeing the game, and cheerleaders, and hearing the Stand Band play."
