Presented by Catherine Hambley, Ph.D. Psychologist

No one would dispute that, for most of us, we have dealt with an enormous amount of stress over the past few years: Pick your stressors: COVID (and more COVID); adapting to a remote work setting, the economy, our political landscape, the new age of misinformation (or as some put it, “alternative facts”), climate change, the war in Ukraine, the debate over vaccines….We not only need to normalize the need for stress reduction strategies, we need to develop greater stress resiliency. Brain science has a lot to teach us about hardwiring new coping techniques and creating a more resilient brain. Learn how you can develop greater resiliency and help your clients do the same.

Learning Objectives:
By the end of the program, participants will be able to:
  • Describe at least 5 behaviors that will build greater brain resiliency
  • Identify at least 3 effects of stress on the brain
  • Develop a personalized stress coping plan
