Too Many Choices Paralysis and the Art of Choosing
Too Many Choices - road signs

For some time in the United States, the prevailing thought has been the more choices, the better—no such thing as too many choices. As psychologists and economists study the issue, however, they are concluding that an overload of options may actually paralyze decision making or push people to make a decision not in their best interests. Research also shows us that too many choices leads us to be less, not more, satisfied once we actually decide. What does this phenomenon mean for social service support? Are you decreasing family engagement by providing too many service options? Do you understand how providing clear information and prioritizing choices and options can support increased family engagement?

This workshop covers the neuroscience behind choice and engagement support—and concrete approaches you can take to support the families you serve.
