UNF psychology professor publishes new book ‘Think Like a Girl’

Shelby Senesac, News Editor

Award-winning psychologist and UNF psychology professor, Dr. Tracy Alloway, published her new book “Think Like a Girl: 10 Unique Strengths of a Woman’s Brain and How to Make Them Work for You.”

Front cover of “Think Like a Girl.”

The book’s description reads:

“Women’s brains are different. It’s not one-size-fits both men and women. Yet many women still believe the myths we tell ourselves.

In “Think Like a Girl,” award-winning psychologist, professor, and TEDx speaker Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway will help you discover how:

  • sticking your hand in a bucket of ice can help you make a less emotional decision
  • changing one word can provide a buffer against depressive thoughts
  • adopting a more relationship-centric leadership approach can be better for mental health

It’s time to dispel the myths! Stop underestimating your abilities. Stop downplaying your successes. And stop apologizing.

“Dare to think differently. Dare to think like a girl.”
