Speaker Series with Dr. Barbara Ward: Why is self care even more important during a pandemic?

Please join us on Thursday, February 11th for our February Speaker Series. Expert Dr. Barbara Ward, Mental Health Lead for the Waterloo District School Board, will be presenting to parents, staff, and community partners on why self care is even more important during a pandemic. Together, we will learn about how to mitigate stress levels, especially as they relate to the pandemic, by focusing on the positive and seeing things in a different way. We will review the benefits of shifting your brain to this resilient approach, and learn specific strategies that can enhance these neurological changes. A collective approach to self care will also be explored, given the interconnectedness of student, educator, and parent/caregiver well-being.
