Dr. Patricia O’Gorman will discuss her latest book which aims to help women learn to recognize and combat how they sabotage themselves through their girly thoughts, a major drain on their confidence and personal power. According to Dr. O’Gorman, girly thoughts not only stifle women from achieving their full potential, but they slash women’s confidence by telling them that if they don’t fall in line with the latest version of what is culturally desirable and acceptable, they are worthless. Her plan includes the following steps: 1) Identify girly thoughts. For example: I’m a Good Girl, and Good Girls Don’t…; 2) Understand the source of negative self-talk to combat self-judgment –important so women can stop blaming themselves, feeling alone and plagued by self-judgment; 3) Change how women think by taking the steps needed to disengage from toxic thoughts and behaviors; and 4) Develop essential skills to create a more resilient spirit.
