Stress and Resilience: How Adversity Can Help Us Adapt and Grow Stronger
Skyline Hospital and Resilience Network of the Gorge present this FREE wellness class on October 18 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Skyline Hospital Meeting Space. Learn how toxic stress and trauma affect the human body, and how we can use these experiences as a catalyst to develop resiliency.
Space is limited and pre-registration is recommended. To reserve your spot, call 509.637.2601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Claire Ranit, Project Director, Resilience Network of the Gorge, and Erica Didier, M.D., Skyline Family Medicine in a safe and collaborative learning environment where the following topics will be discussed:
Stress and the Body: Understanding how the body responds to stress. Different kinds of stress have different impacts on humans.
Adverse Childhood Experience (or ACE’s): How toxic stress can cause trauma, and influence how brains develop to interact with the world around them.
Resilience: The ability of someone to bounce back higher than
where they started, so the next time they face adversity it doesn’t knock them down as hard.
Resilient Communities: How policies, resources, and support play a big role in a person’s ability to be resilient. The more resilient each community member, the more resilient the community.
