Event Details

Stress management is often discussed in terms of adaptive coping. We are taught that stress is a normal part of life and we must learn to cope with it. Yet Self-Reg tells us that stress management is not just a question of coping but also a question of managing energy flow and recovering the energy expended in dealing with stressors. Moreover, coping, which often involves exerting self-control, uses considerable amounts of energy. Therefore, if we can’t reduce stressors and break energy cycles we will be continually draining our energy through coping. This class explores how Self-Reg can help people understand and break a stress cycle, thereby broadening their available tools (beyond coping) for managing stress.

Your day: Each session is co-led by Dr. Stuart Shanker and members of the TMC team, including Executive Director Dr. Susan Hopkins. We will provide a fresh, locally-sourced lunch as well as snacks.
