Stressbusting in the 21st Century Parent Retreat
May 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm
We know that the ways we have coped with stress in the past may no longer be effective. To address this reality, the Parents Group of the Sun Prairie United Methodist Church invites you to our most current retreat: Stressbusting in the 21st Century.
During the retreat, we will have the opportunity to increase our awareness of managing the realities of our lives now and then develop some more helpful stress management strategies, using the most current cognitive evidence and brain research to achieve mental wellness by more effectively managing stress. (Don’t worry, you do not need to be a brain scientist for this discussion.)
Collectively we will explore lessons learned from the field of neurobiology research, specifically the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study, intergenerational trauma, and toxic stress. We will have an opportunity to discuss the implications this reality has for our children, our families, our community and ourselves. This includes behavior and learning ability and overall health and well-being across the lifespan.
Using this information, we will work together to expand awareness of our own stressors. We can then more effectively develop some strategies for self-care. This process will also give us the tools and energy to strengthen supportive, healing, and nurturing environments for our children and families, our faith community, in the places where we work, live, and play. (Again, don’t worry. You don’t have to be a therapist to be therapeutic.)
