The current situation with COVID-19 has created sudden change, coupled with rising uncertainty and fear. Change, especially undesired change, fear, and uncertainty can tax the brain’s resources, and trigger circuitry in the brain that reduces our ability to stay focused, engaged and manage emotions effectively.
In this interactive webinar, you will learn how to counter the effects of fear in the brain. You will be introduced to a neuroscience-based framework for learning to recognize and manage brain states, including the critical role emotions play. Specific tools and skills will be shared that are designed to help you quiet the fear circuitry in the brain and increase your resiliency and ability to navigate the current situation more effectively and creatively.
