Stress Management Series
Stress management is a concern for everyone in these busy and uncertain times. In this educational and participatory workshop series, we will learn and practice several different effective strategies for reducing everyday life stress, including mindfulness, meditation, visualization, guided imagery, cognitive restructuring, emotional health and regulation, communication, assertiveness, and movement. Participants will be asked to commit to attending all eight sessions and complete outside assignments for maximum benefit. We will meet weekly for an hour to an hour and a half.
