After a brief review of Part One of this two-part recorded webinar series, Dr. Jo® will break down what happens in our brains during that millisecond between a stressful event and our response/reaction. While it seems to be a two-step process (1. it happens and 2. we respond), there are actually five specific steps that flow from one to another. And, interrupting or changing any one of these specific aspects can completely change our response to the stressful situation. Like it never happened! Again, you’ll have time to think about your unique situation that causes you stress – and come up with solutions for each step of the process.
The live version of this webinar will be presented by Dr. Jo® Lichten, on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, from 2-3 pm EDT. This recorded version is approved for one hour of continuing education credit. RDs should list code 175 for this activity type.
