Presentation: “Values in Action: The Power of Kindness”

Speaker:  Susan Y. Muszynski PhD

Susan Yulish Muszynski, Ph. D. is Values-in-Action’s Co-founder and Vice President of Training and Evaluation. Together with her husband, Stuart, she co-founded the Project Love in-school anti-bullying, culture building and leadership program in 1994. In an effort to stem the tide of violence and negativity in schools, Project Love helps students to see the humanity in each other and to choose to treat each other with kindness. Dr. Muszynski, a licensed psychologist, received her Ph. D. From Kent State University and completed an APA approved internship at MetroHealth hospital. Prior to founding Project Love, she worked at St Luke’s Hospital, conducting assessments and group therapy with hospitalized adolescents. Currently, Dr. Muszynski consults with schools regarding school culture, designs programs and trains teachers and students to exercise their leadership to promote kindness caring and respect. 

Values in Action: The Power of Kindness presentation will describe and demonstrate how the Project Love Program works in schools. The program, developed as a result of the experience that Susan and her husband had with his recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, uses Attribution Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Positive Psychology to help adolescents choose kindness and rethink the way they judge others. Dr. Muszynski will use experiential activities and share knowledge gained from her 25 years of work with Project Love/Values in Action to enable you to pass on this methodology to your clients and others in your life. 

Values-in-Action through a recently developed train the trainer model will train 300,000 students in 1000 schools across the country this year.
