We invite you to join us for the next webinar in our Healthy Longevity Webinar Series on Thursday, July 24th at 10 AM Pacific, 1 PM Eastern. Led by licensed clinical social worker and award-winning author Nancy Kriseman, the webinar will cover the most common causes of caregiver stress and ways to prevent burnout by becoming more self-aware. In particular, Nancy will discuss mindfulness and the spirit-side of caregiving, two coping strategies presented in her latest book, The Mindful Caregiver: Finding Ease in the Caregiving Journey. This webinar will offer real time solutions caregivers can use in their everyday routines to feel more empowered and hopeful. There will be a special focus on how to help caregivers who struggle with unrealistic expectations and have difficulty letting go of how their loved ones used to be. Nancy will reserve the last 15 minutes of the webinar for a Q&A session, so we encourage webinar attendees to come prepared with questions.
Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your seat as soon as possible by registering here: http://bit.ly/caregivermindfulness.
