One of the things I love to do is share what’s happening on campus in my psychology class.
Today’s topic: The Shadow Effect
Watch this short video and consider the following questions:
- What is your shadow?
- How does your shadow serve you?
- Where does your shadow come from?
How do I bring shadow side of myself into the light?
