Vrinda Kalia featured in Washington Post story

In the June 9, 2022, edition of the Washington Post, our own Vrinda Kalia was featured in a story on toxic positivity (i.e., when people respond to others’ struggles with trite statements like “Everything happens for a reason”). The Washington Post article draws upon Vrinda’s expertise in studying perfectionism and emotional expression, and it outlines several more beneficial responses endorsed by Vrinda. Congrats to Vrinda for this recognition of her work and of her scholarly expertise!
