The COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest, global warming, politics, uncertainty, etc. are affecting everyone in a variety of ways. While taking care of your physical health is key during this time, so is taking care of your mental wellness. That’s why SCET is teaming up with the UC Berkeley alumni company Foresight, a mental health and wellness clinic that provides patients with a wide range of treatments and services related to improving mental health and lifestyle.
One of Foresights’s mental health practitioners will be offering a series of workshops covering different aspects of mindfulness techniques and practices. These mindfulness exercises have been scientifically found to be the key element in stress reduction. These practices will help students stay focused on what they have control over in these turbulent times. All are welcome to join.
This series will be facilitated online by Danny Meadows, LMFT. Once you have registered, you will receive the Zoom dial-in by email directly from Foresight. The schedule for these workshops is as follows:
10/8: Being Present in Trying Times: Learn skills for when it is difficult or impossible to change a situation and tolerate physical & emotional pain better.
10/15: Understanding Emotions: Labeling and Regulating Them: Help with problem solving, relationships, work / school performance. Learn how to influence which emotions we have, when, and how to express them.
