CPR for Mental Well-Being: After COVID

The Power of Courage, Presence, & Resilience

May 25th at 1:00 pm ET/12:00 pm CT

This webinar is part of Rethink Ed's Expert Webinar Series

Join us on May 25th at 1pm for a conversation with Tara Cousineau, PhD, a clinical psychologist and researcher at Harvard University Counseling Center.

For more than a year all of our lives have been disrupted in one way or another. There has been uncertainty, frustration, heartache, loss, and loneliness, to name a few. Stress and anxiety levels have been on the rise and the consequential mental health vulnerabilities are considered a parallel, hidden pandemic. Yet, there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. May is Mental Health Awareness month and we now have a chance to catch our breath and reflect on the experiences of the past year, including the grit and grace seen among family, friends and co-workers.

This presentation attends to key inner strengths needed for the new normal of post-pandemic life: Courage, Presence, and Resilience. This talk will offer select skills rooted in evidence-based practices: mindfulness, positive psychology, and self-compassion. Learn about the power of positive neuroplasticity to overcome the brain’s negativity bias and learn skills to hardwire happiness and grow lasting inner strengths.
