Building Stress Resilience and Hope for our new era, Elissa Epel, PhD, M.S, M.Phil (Kaiser Permanente Employees and Current Trainees)

We live in remarkable times. In light of overlapping global stressors such as the pandemic and climate crisis, it takes more effort to help maintain emotional well-being. This is true for mental health care providers, as they both have personal work-life balance challenges as well as risk of work burn out and experiencing vicarious traumas. We will discuss the science and practice for mindfulness-based skills, self-care skills for both relaxation and hormetic stress, as well as the importance of maintaining daily purpose in the face of existential threats.
