Stress Awareness and Self-Regulation for Ourselves and Our Children
October 21 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PDT
SESSION INFO: « Back to all events
During this presentation we will look at what stress is, what happens in our brain and body when we experience stress, and why stress results in certain behaviours.
Stress awareness is an ongoing process that involves gaining a deeper understanding of the science related to stress, then personalizing the information to fit with our own experiences. As we reflect on our own stress and practice self-regulation strategies to reduce and prevent stress for ourselves, we also end up building a toolkit of knowledge and skills from which to help others.
