Stress for UC Hasting students and Community is being highlighted in new ways this school year; from virtual classes to dealing with a pandemic and wildfires at the same time, focusing has never been more difficult. How can we support our community?
One answer? A new virtual workshop co-hosted by the Center for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution (CNDR) and Office of Student Services, featured special guest clinicians from the local Bay Area collective Therapists of Color for Social Justice.
Clinicians Dr. Ivy Hall and Katerina Pogosov LMFT, presented a dynamic interactive workshop on how parts of the brain and stress affect one another, and what can be done through mindfulness to help mitigate negative long-term effects. They led everyone through a mindfulness practice and several other skills that can be used in daily life to manage stress.
With a great turnout and many requests for more workshops on wellness, look out for more events like this in the future!
