Fostering Kind and Compassionate Relationships During Times of Stress

It is difficult to be our best, more compassionate self, especially when we are facing stressors in our daily life. Showing up for our friends and loved ones wholeheartedly can require conscious choices and commitment. But the good news is that our close relationships are also the best resource in facing life’s challenges.

This online workshop will cover some of the common responses to stress and the ways stress can impact relationships. We will outline helpful processes for personal stress reduction, explore ways to have meaningful family time, and provide tools for compassionate and supportive communication, even in conflict. Through breakout groups, class discussion, and exercises, you will have the opportunity to share your experience and gain support from others. By learning ways to navigate your relationships with family, friends, and your community, you can build strength and resilience through difficult times.

Attendance at the live session is required to receive incentive points. This class will not be recorded.
