Webinar – On the key essential of coping with stress and provide simple practices you can integrate into your caregiving.

January 29 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Genuine Resilience is Closer (and Easier) Than You May Think
Resilience, or the ability to rebound from difficult or traumatic experiences, is the key to well-being. In the context of caregiving, developing emotional skills for coping with stress is essential for the long-term. The statistics on the harmful impacts of family caregiving are sobering, yet there are ways to maintain health and well-being. This webinar featuring Zen Caregiving Project will introduce you to the key areas essential for coping with stress and provide simple practices you can integrate into your caregiving to build resilience.
Objectives:
  • Introduce the relationship between mindfulness, emotional skills, and well-being in caregivers
  • Lead a short, guided meditation and provide ways to maintain a simple mindfulness practice in one’s busy life
  • Offer simple activities that family caregivers can integrate into their lives to build compassion, resilience, and to better cope with stressful situations.
