Tuesdays beginning April 19 – July 12

A 45-minute workshop held in room 176B of the Manwaring Center with Dallas L. Johnson, Ph.D., on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. from January 11 through March 29.

In this workshop, you will learn how the brain and body respond to real and perceived physical and emotional threats. This response is called the fear response and it contributes to the development of excess stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and suicide ideation. In the workshop you will learn strategies to better manage the fear response in order to improve your overall well-being. You can also learn more about this approach by going to the free website (please note the fear-less website and content is the sole responsibility of Dallas L. Johnson and not the university). For specific questions about the workshop feel free to contact Dr. Johnson directly at
