Oct 1, 2018

Our guest is Dr. Jennifer Ragsdale, Associate Professor of Psychology, who discusses her research on how people deal with work stress. She describes what causes stress at work, including information overload, the fight-or-flight reaction, and a culture of overwork. Dr. Ragdale's research explores the notion of work-life balance, identifies activities that help us disengage from work, and considers how technologies like cellphones can make stress recovery more difficult.
