Next week, Community Action’s original four-part webinar series, “Social & Emotional Wellness,” will conclude with the presentation of “Stress and the Body.” Stress is a normal part of our daily lives. Whether at work or home, or in our relationships, finances, health, politics and much, much more, stress impacts human beings mentally, emotionally and physically. And, when stress becomes overwhelming to us, it can significantly impact our overall health and wellness.
“Stress and the Body,” led by mental health professionals Lucille Rosario (MSW, LICSW) and Chad M. Jayasekera (MA, LICSW), will help us explore how stress affects our mind on our bodies, important signs and signals to understand, and tools and strategies to build resilience to stress. To participate in this free virtual event, which takes place next Tuesday, March 23, 2021, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm CT, please register in advance at gotowebinar.
You can also watch the first three installments of the Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series (“Parenting During a Pandemic,” Going Beyond Trauma,” and Community Violence and Trauma”) by visiting our dedicated webpage at caprw.org.
About Community Action’s Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series
Community Action’s four-part Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series features experts in the mental health industry, who will provide vital health/wellness tools and strategies to the communities we serve. While trauma and stress affect those living low-income lives most, if not all of the time, adequately addressing these daily anxieties is of particular importance at this time in history as the coronavirus pandemic and America’s deep-seated social, political, and economic crises continue to disparately affect low-income and BIPOC communities.
