Description

Election season coupled with the uncertainty of the ongoing pandemic and disruption to our normal routines can cause elevated levels of stress and anxiety. 

To help faculty, staff, and students cope with these challenging circumstances, Dr. Anne Weisman from the UNLV School of Medicine is hosting a virtual mind body skills seminar based on the program developed by Dr. James Gordon of The Center for Mind Body Medicine in Washington, D.C.

In the seminar, Dr. Weisman will teach techniques to help you:

  • Relax your body
  • Quiet your mind
  • Improve your sleep
  • Manage stress
  • Improve your mood

The Center for Mind Body Medicine program has repeatedly demonstrated in published research 80% reductions in symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, significant improvement in symptoms of depression, and enhanced hopefulness, optimism, and compassion for others.
