Attention is the ability to actively process specific information in the environment while tuning out other details. Attention is limited in terms of both capacity and duration, so it is important to have ways to effectively manage the attentional resources we have available to make sense of the world. The ability to focus attention is critical for professionals in high-stakes, information-oriented fields.
This CPE webinar introduces core principles of how attention works in the mind and the brain, addressing common misconceptions about attention and suggesting ways to develop and manage attention effectively.
Join author and research psychologist, Dr. Michelle Miller, in tackling these questions that affect all professionals needing to maximize focus. Dr. Miller will draw on her recent book Remembering and Forgetting in the Age of Technology to discuss what attention is, the brain mechanisms involved in attention, the limitations of attention, and the unexpected ways in which attention affects nearly everything in our minds do on daily life.
Following are the major questions that are answered in this CPD course:
In this highly interactive CPE/CPD Personality Development webinar, participants will consider the role attention plays in their own lives and what gets in the way as we attempt to master and direct our attention.

Great webinar! It's the second one I've participated in with Dr. Miller. Her recommendations for actions that can be implemented immediately are spot-on. I'm walking away with a better understanding of attention and focus, and small actions I can take to improve my focus and attention.
