Two years of dealing with a global pandemic has left us tired! Just when things start to feel normal we get knocked down by the latest wave of disruption. As therapists we’re seeing signs of chronic stress in our communities more than ever.
How might chronic stress be affecting you or those you care about? On Wednesday March 16, join our team of Artesian Collaborative therapists for a live webinar on how to recognize the signs of chronic stress and begin addressing it.
This one hour “lunch and learn” session will be held 12pm-1pm CST on Zoom.
We will also offer 20-min breakout seminars on the ongoing stress we experience from:
Mindfulness/Making Meaning/ Values with Ben Durchslag, LCSW
Learn ways to steady your mind and connect with what matters to you. Explore with others how adjusting your attitude towards unavoidable suffering can make a significant difference in your life and how you show up within your sphere of influence.
Caring for the Caregivers with Sithara Stohr, MSW and Rosondunnii Marshall, MA
Sometimes we find ourselves building walls—constantly feeling angry or shielding ourselves from the injustices our communities and loved ones face. This group is focused on recognizing the signs of how we are affected by the experience and trauma of those we serve. We hope to begin to discuss how this shows up and how we can care for ourselves as we care for others.
Burnout and Caring for Yourself with Jackie Chavez, MA
The 20-minute breakout group on burnout and caring for yourself will entail reflection questions, strengths-based interventions and resources to help attendees assess their levels of burnout and how they can begin to care for themselves.
Leading During Stress with Dr. Sunitha Chandy, PsyD
It’s one thing to care for our own stress but when we are leading a team, we often feel like we go from caring for our teams and trying to carry their stress for them! This seminar will be a time to share more about how leaders can care for themselves and their teams and create spaces to address chronic stress while also addressing the goals and objectives of their roles.
Parenting with Ben Tudor, LMFT and Marion Harris
Parenting is hard. Really hard. Then enter the pandemic. Have you felt frustration, guilt, grief, burnout, hopelessness, fear, or any other tough emotion related to parenting in the last two years? You are definitely not alone. This group will offer tips, shared experiences, a normalization of your struggles, and an appreciation of all you do as parents.
