5 Touchpoints for Living Well in the Midst of Pandemic Fears with Babette Reeves, MA, MSW, LCSW
Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 3:00 PM Eastern Time
Even for the healthiest, the COVID-19 virus triggers threat responses within the brain, nervous system, and body, often leading to an escalating cascade of overwhelming emotions and thoughts. While we can feel helpless against something we can’t run away from or fight directly, there are ways we can turn down our body’s automatic responses, decrease our stress, and improve our resilience.
Join us for this presentation and discussion as Babette Reeves, MA, MSW, LCSW, Behavioral Medicine Specialist, shares tools for caring for ourselves in ways that are protective, healing, and even strengthening despite the threats around us.
As someone with dermatomyositis, Babette will also share some of her own experiences living through COVID-19. There will be time for Questions and Answers as well.
