This class consists of teaching self-care and mindfulness skills to people experiencing stress from caretaking responsibilities. This is not a therapy group, so individuals experiencing significant distress such as severe anxiety of depression, should seek a referral for psychotherapy from their primary care doctor or from the Psychology Today referral service. It is the intention of this class to teach and promote the practices of self-care, self-compassion as well as related strategies to alleviate stress. People should respect each other’s privacy; confidentiality cannot be guaranteed outside of class.
