40 minute education session surrounding stress– this would cover some very basic and simple neuroscience regarding stress, ways that our thinking and productivity can sometimes be impacted as well as our social interactions or lack thereof and several ways to detect those signs of change in ourselves.

*25 minutes of community dialogue – listen or ask questions specific to your organization’s culture, overarching concerns during this time, and solution-focused strategies and techniques to minimize the intensity of the current global pandemic impact
