PCAIN 2022 “Breaking the Cycle” Webinar – Supporting Wellbeing: An Introduction to Mind Body Medicine
June 24, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Topic: “Supporting Wellbeing: An Introduction to Mind Body Medicine”
Date: June 24, 2022
Description: Stress is a reality of life, especially during these unprecedented times. In addition to our own personal experiences of stress, we often absorb the stress and trauma of others. Those who work with or care for children and youth are particularly vulnerable. Yet, we often overlook addressing caregiver stress, especially prolonged and toxic stress, as being foundational to supporting our children, youth, families, and communities. Through the lens of Mind Body Medicine, this presentation will provide you with the knowledge and skills to support your own self-regulation and wellbeing, both individually and collectively.
Speaker: Christy Gauss, MSW, LSW, Ignite Wellbeing LLC
