2018 Seehra Lecture

April 18, 2018 from 4:00 PM until 5:30 PM

Erika Kirby, the A.F. Jacobson Endowed Chair in Communication and a professor of communication studies at Creighton University, will discuss how communicative practices can help (or hurt) work-life “balance.” She will discuss the communicative implications of how relationships – whether in the workplace, in the “homespace” or beyond – can be supportive and encourage work-life integration or non-supportive and create situations of overwork and stress. She will also discuss findings on intrapersonal communication and the utility of self-talk practices for finding balance, especially related to reflection and discernment.
