PACE Speaker Series - Terror Management Theory

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday October 7

7:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

We are excited to be hosting Dr. Strawberry Olive. Nearly everyone fears death. How that fear influences human thinking and behavior is the focus of terror management theory (TMT) research. According to TMT, death anxiety drives people to adopt worldviews that protect their self-esteem, worthiness, and sustainability and allow them to believe that they play an essential role in a meaningful world. Some of these views lead to troubling actions. Learn about how this operates in your world and those around you!
