Featuring Elizabeth Lesser

Omega cofounder Elizabeth Lesser talks about Dr. Shelley E. Taylor's research on the "tend and befriend" response theory during the 17th annual Women and Power Conference.

Taylor's work showed that "fight or flight" was not the only response to conflict and stress; and that women (and men) often turn to care, creativity, and circles of belonging in stressful times.
