Davisville, Oct. 17, 2016: Why Gratitude Works

Rachel Cross lives in Davis, works as a registered nurse at a state prison, and previously taught developmental psychology at Sacramento State. For four Thursdays starting Oct. 27, she's teaching a short, free series on gratitude -- not for money or as part of a program, but because she “can’t not" do it. She feels compelled, driven by the demonstrated value of gratitude as a practice -- as something you do. Next month, many people won't be happy with the result of the presidential election, whoever wins. How does gratitude apply there? Does too much gratitude breed complacency ... and who should you be grateful to? We get into all that. Her thoughtful answers draw on her training and experience.
