Though it often seems as though the most important question is: “Is it true?” we actually have choices about which questions we make the most important in our lives. For example, it is likely “true” that you have a nose on your face, but is this fact really helpful? If you want to be a loving parent, how useful would it be to remind yourself several times a day that you have a nose on your face? Perhaps not so useful, even though it remains “true.” In this presentation, Dr. Robb will explore an alternative basis for choosing which questions we make the most important in our lives. Asking ourselves  “Is this helpful?” may better help us to develop a more fulfilling life than “Is this true?” Join us and find out for yourself!

Dr. Hank Robb will join SMART Recovery to present Is it True? or Is it Helpful? on Saturday, March 10, at 1:00 pm EST in the online meeting venue, The SMART Room.
