Dancing with Tigers
Janet E. Lapp, Ph.D.

Throughout civilization, the emotion of fear has been thought of as a weakness and as a warning to avoid. Instead, in the absence of real danger, fear should be a signal to approach and a sign of strength. Drawing on more than 30 years as a mental health professional, Lapp guides us with story and myth toward seeing our fears as strengths, re-interpreting our own truth and toward dancing our own dance.  She was a keynote speaker at the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents conference in Bismarck in October 2001.

Emotional Intelligence
Daniel Goleman
1995 3-hour Audiocassette Tape
Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart--one he terms "emotional intelligence." This includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy and social deftness.
