PCLG is sponsoring a free workshop for parents and caregivers this fall. Join us for light refreshments and a chance to meet other parents while learning about how to take care of yourself!
Parenting a child with emotional, behavioral, or developmental disabilities can be challenging. Parents and caregivers often report exhaustion, financial strain, and feelings of isolation. The perception of stigma can increase the sense of burden and isolation that our families feel as well.
Dr. Elizabeth Reeve will share her unique insight into the effects that stress can have on parents and ways that we can learn to reduce its impact on us. Participants will learn:
- What is stress?
- The effects of chronic stress
- Unique stressors for parents
- Ways to reduce stress
- Woodlake Nature Center
- 6710 Lake Shore Drive
- Richfield, MN
This event is FREE, but please register!
