ANNOUNCEMENT: On August 15, we will have a Positive Psychology News webinar featuring Karen Warner, who will be speaking about The Sudden Caregiver’s Paradox: her discovery, first-hand, that caregiving for a loved one, while being inarguably depleting, can be, for many, a surprising source of well-being.Karen Warner, MAPP ’13, became a sudden caregiver in October of 2014, when her late husband, Joel Kurtzman, was diagnosed with incurable stage IV cancer. Seeking, and not finding, a roadmap to guide her caregiving experience and decisionmaking, she was determined to create one in Joel’s honor. When Joel passed away in April 2016, she began writing Stumbling Upon Grace: The Sudden Caregiver’s Playbook, which is now nearing completion. With encouragement from the medical community and the support of a MAPP Alumni Association grant, she is also building an online community for caregivers – www.thesuddencaregiver.com.
In this webinar, Karen will reveal her playbook for caregivers and the five ways they can mindfully elevate wellbeing, even in the face of overwhelming odds.
In addition to her work with caregivers, Karen is president and founder of TangibleGroup, an executive coaching and consulting firm –www.tangiblegroup.com. Before launching Tangible, Karen had a 27-year corporate career in high tech marketing, including serving as Vice President of Worldwide Marketing in private equity. She has held management and executive positions at companies that include Dun and Bradstreet, American Express, Lotus Development and IBM.
With Dr. Margaret Kern, Karen co-authored the whitepaper City of Wellbeing: the What, Why, and How of Measuring Wellbeing, which was published by the City of Santa Monica in January 2014.
Karen’s MAPP capstone, 2013, focused on the worldwide measurement of wellbeing. The Wellbeing Index: A Landscape of Worldwide Measures and the Potential for Large-Scale Change continues to receive ongoing inquiries from around the globe.
