Stressed but Not Stressed Out: Practical Tools for Managing Stress
We invite family members, caregivers and medical professionals to join the Pediatric Palliative Care Coalition for an interactive virtual discussion exploring issues facing the community caring for children with complex medical needs.
Stress is an inevitable part of life -- especially for those of us who are caregivers in our personal and professional lives. We all encounter moments that challenge us, stretch us, or bring up strong feelings. The good news is that there are tools that can make it easier to manage stress in a healthy way so that it does not lead to distress or illness.
In this Firefly Chat moderated by palliative care social worker Dana Dombrowski, palliative care physician and mindfulness teacher Miriam Stewart will discuss practical tools for managing stress and strategies for fitting these tools into our busy lives. Participants will have the opportunity to learn brief mindfulness practices and experience a guided meditation as part of the session.
