9:00 AM - 10:45 AM | Workshop: Sustaining Self During Uncertain Times

The past 18 months have been layered with anxiety, uncertainty, and loss. The foundation on which we built our day to day existence was shattered and we had to quickly find a new way to exist in our many roles. Mundane decisions were suddenly incredibly difficult and there felt like there was no safe or “right” decision. There is a cumulative toll; physically and emotionally. As COVID-19 becomes a fabric of our day to day lives how do we begin the process of emotional recovery and re-entry-on all levels. This 90-min interactive workshop will frame this experience through a lens of grief and trauma and offer tangible skills that participants can utilize immediately to sustain self during uncertain times.

Presented by: The Wendt Center For Loss & Healing
