Micromovement and Microprogress

Stefanie's graduate degree from New York University, and fieldwork at the NYU Phelps Lab for Neuroscience Research, NYU Institute for Prevention Science, and Yeshiva University's Albert Einstein College of Medicine focused on the cross-section of neuroscience, resilience and social justice. She combines a decade plus of counseling and teaching in schools and organizations across the US, Canada, Europe, Latin America and Africa, with insights gained from science research and training in monasteries with meditation and mindfulness teachers from Africa, the US, Vietnam and India. She now offers neuroscience workshops and consulting to universities and businesses such as Illinois State University, City Colleges of Chicago, the Chicago Teachers Union, Northwestern University's School of Education & Social Policy, Google, HPI Design School in Berlin, and school districts throughout the US, UK and Canada.   Stefanie Frank Show Highlights
