“The summer institute provides a wonderful opportunity for researchers to learn the basic fundamentals of SEM as well as some advanced
applications and research opportunities that SEM can facilitate. Dr. Little provides personable “hands-on” instruction in a relaxed and
enjoyable environment. I highly recommend this summer institute to faculty and graduate students alike!” – Paul Schrodt, Assistant Professor, University of Texas at Arlington

“Personal Zen” — a very cool free app.

Make sure to get your copy of “Personal Zen.” A very cool free app for the reduction of stress and anxiety. I was lucky enough spend the last semester in the lab where this was developed. Very excited to see it live.

Visit here to learn about some of the science behind the new app — very cool also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YK5daKmrxlg&feature=youtu.be
