Event Description

Stress in academia is a daunting reality. The ability to identify and manage stress can make the difference between professional success and personal neglect. Too often educators fail to acknowledge increased stress levels and properly balance self-care while concentrating on the institution of higher education. Occupational and personal stress poses a threat to physical health, which consequently contributes to the elevated levels of burnout and compassion fatigue that is frequently recognized in academia. This workshop presents an overview of managing stress and demonstrates how to apply various self-care approaches in everyday practice. Explore proven techniques and strategies that can set you on the route to a much calmer, happier, and fulfilled life.  A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.
