Join us at Violet for an interactive workshop where we’ll dive into the science behind stress, review research-based stress management techniques and practice skills to manage stress both at work and at home. These techniques lend themselves to our often hectic, modern lifestyles and are easy to implement in our daily lives. You'll gain a toolkit of various techniques for in-the-moment stress management and daily habits that you can build over time to decrease stress and anxiety. This workshop incorporates tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Twelve Step Programs and Mindfulness.
