"How to Wait Well"

Many of life’s most significant and stressful events involve waiting for some kind of news, whether academic, professional, medical, or financial. For most people, these moments of uncertainty are fraught with worry and sleepless nights. Dr. Kate Sweeny is an expert on the experience of waiting, and she will share some of the insights from her research program on what makes waiting so difficult, why it's easier for some people than others, and how to make waiting a little easier.
