Strategies for Staying Sane Through Stress and Uncertainty

We humans are better at bouncing back from bad news than we are at adapting to uncertainty. Continuous change and uncertainty cause a great deal of stress because we don’t have anything stable to adapt and adjust to. In times of upheaval, it is more important than ever to attend to our own wellbeing and the health of our communities. This workshop will help participants differentiate between stressors (causes of stress), and the physiological stress response, and will offer concrete strategies for addressing the stress caused by uncertainty.
