Any one feeling a little stressed? Are you wanting 2017 to be better than 2016?  If so, join us for a lively discussion with psychologist, Bill Crawford, Ph.D. as he shares his "New Information On The Science Of Dealing With Stress, People, & Life."  Dr. Crawford is a sought after speaker for corporations and universities across the country (Carnegie Mellon, Rider, UT, and Texas State to name a few)… AND he is a parent of a Texas State student (Nik Crawford, Senior in the BFA acting program)! This means he can speak from experience to both parents and students on how to bring more clarity, confidence, and creativity to everything you do. In addition to holding a doctorate in Psychology from the University of Houston, Dr. Crawford is a licensed psychologist, author of four books, organizational consultant, and life coach. Therefore, if you are looking for new information on how to deal with stress (versus stress dealing with you), and how to engage others so that they truly hear and understand what you are wanting them to know, join us for Family Day, March 25.  

Read more about Dr. Crawford at his website, .
