November 14 / Noon-1:00 PM (Central Time)
Instructor: Dr. Kirsten Bradbury
Psychologists, counselors, and other professionals may earn one hour of continuing education (CE) credit by participating in this webinar. See details below.Coping with stress is a part of everyone’s life, and health care providers carry special burdens in this area. In fact, professional helpers are at elevated risk of stress-related illness. Chronic stress increases susceptibility to everything from cold viruses and tension headaches to cardiac events and depression.
This reality makes stress management a crucial commitment for health care providers — and for anyone whose high-stress work life places them at risk of the negative effects of stress on mental and physical health.
In this second installment of our free webinar series on self-care, Dr. Kirsten Bradbury highlights a group of stress-management tools known as mind-body practices due to their psychophysiological quality. Well-demonstrated to be effective in reducing stress and its attendant negative health outcomes, adding mind-body practices to your self-care repertoire gives you tools for improving your sense of well-being, improving focus and concentration, sleeping better, and a myriad of other mental health benefits.
This brief review of stress-reduction exercises includes introductions to some of the best mind-body practices for self-care, including yoga, aromatherapy, systematic muscle relaxation, basic meditation, and a trio of positive visualization techniques.
