Free workshop: “How to Manage Stress in Uncertain Times”

November 1, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Center for Parents and Teachers announces a new and innovative offering on How to Manage Stress in Uncertain Times

 

Please find instructions below each workshop on how to register for individual sessions.

Wish to attend all all sessions?  Please email cpt@concordps.org and type “Series on Managing Stress” in the subject line. We are happy to announce that due to a generous grant, these programs are being offered free of charge!

 

About the offerings:  Stress is a natural, automatic, often unconscious part of daily life. Yet its impact — on our emotions, behavior, bodies — can be corrosive to both our wellbeing and the quality of our relationships. Join us for one workshop or for all of them as we gather on zoom on 4 consecutive Monday evenings, starting October 18 at 7:30.  We will explore science-backed tools and insights that calm the nervous system to better manage stress.

All sessions are held online for 45 minutes and are facilitated by our instructor, Carolyn Wilkins,  who trained at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine.

 

  • Monday November 1 at 7:30 PM “Stress Warning Signals: What are they & what can they teach us?”

Pre-registration by October 25th is required by emailing cpt@concordps.org and typing “November 1” in the subject line

Stress is more than feeling distress and discomfort; it’s the root cause of 60-90% of all doctor visits, begging us to forge a healthier approach to managing daily stress. Where and how stress manifests itself in our minds and bodies become valuable data, especially when married with a science-backed toolkit of techniques to calm the nervous system and make us more resilient.

 

  • Monday November 8 at 7:30 PM “Meditation & Mindfulness”

Pre-registration by November 1 is required by emailing cpt@concordps.org and typing “November 8” in the subject line

Developing a mentally clear and emotionally calm, stable state first requires that we acknowledge the critical role that meditation & mindfulness play in making us more resilient. Learn how developing a practice can happen, and what it can offer us as we seek to buffer the daily impact of stress.
