Managing Caregiver Stress through Resilience

Start Date: Tuesday, January 13, 2015 - 7:00pm

End Date: Tuesday, January 13, 2015 - 7:30pm

Location: online event

JME Insights presents a free webinar for family and professional caregivers.

The guest presenter is Rita Schianofounder of Live A Flourishing Life™, offering strategic programs that help people develop and tap into the skills and attitudes necessary to overcome personal and professional barriers, build resilience, and live a better life. 

Webinar Description: Many caregivers are considered to be "hidden patients," for they fail to notice the signs of stress in their own lives. With their attention so focused on the care and needs of their loved one, their own potentially harmful symptoms go unnoticed. The warning signs of stress can attack so subtly and lead to an increase in physical and mental health deterioration. 

In this webinar, stress management and resilience strategist Rita Schiano will focus on types of stressors predominant for caregivers. Topics include:

  • Techniques to recognize when the body is under stress
  • Exploring, uncovering, and discovering caregiver stress triggers
  • Identifying the characteristics and factors that make for resilience
  • Techniques for adopting and developing resilient skills and attitudes
