Friday, 4/8 | 10:00 - 11:30 AM ET
Presented by Jack Paul Gesino, DSW, LCSW
We live in unprecedented times, and the stress and challenges dementia care professionals experience during this pandemic is unfathomable. This presentation will examine how the demands of the modern environment and workplace have met and exceeded the limits of the biological brain. Understanding the neurobiology of stress and its consequences is imperative. Learn the ways in which such neurobiological interventions, such as, practicing gratitude, savoring, kindness, awe, and the psychology of possibility can literally rewire the brain towards experiencing positive emotions and a renewed sense of hope and happiness.
