The primary focus of this class is to learn effective skills for managing stress while it’s happening. We’ll focus less on meditation and more on how to respond to strong emotions and difficult thoughts in the moment. By the end of this 5-week course you will be introduced to an array of mindfulness or self-compassion skills and techniques to help you identify the thoughts and feelings causing distress and to select most helpful skill to help become more responsive and resilient right when you need it.
Location: This class takes place in room 104 in the University Religious Center.
