Building an Empathetic, Supportive, & Resilient Classroom/Workplace Culture in Troubled Times

Chronic stress inhibits cognition and problem solving, compromises optimal immune system functioning, undermines psychological well-being, and erodes personal and organizational morale. In this time of uncertainty due to the pandemic, economic disruption, and social unrest brought on by systemic racism and political conflict, it is vital to organizations that they harness the power of emotional intelligence, empathy, and the neuroscience around empowerment and resilience. This workshop will teach real skills that will enable participants to support themselves, their colleagues, and those they service as they work to cope with these tumultuous times.
