This time our guest is Dr Desirée Kozlowski. She has done some fascinating research on the importance of emotional intelligence in clinical settings, and on gender roles, and she also teaches undergraduate psychology at Southern Cross University.
We had a wide ranging discussion that included how to find your happy place, and the importance of understanding what grounds you. With added nerdy t-shirts!
