There are so many words associated with the Fall and Winter holidays – gifts, family, decorations, and pumpkin pie. One particular word, which isn’t four letters along but might as well be, tends to come well before the guests arrive to partake in that Thanksgiving feast. It’s stress, and unfortunately it’s not seasonal.
Throughout our daily routines, we may come under stress at work and home, dealing with friends or loved ones…even a lengthy red-light pause at an intersection can bring on feelings of frustration if you have somewhere to go. Especially if you are counted upon to care for somebody at home, be it an elderly parent or a child with special needs, these triggers may seem all the more powerful. At Bon Secours, we know that part of maintaining good health involves staying healthy emotionally and spiritually, which is why we’re pleased to offer a free workshop on November 15, 2010 at Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital.
The purpose of this workshop is to use a discussion of the Navy’s Operational Stress Control Program and how we can use the same model to better understand the stages and effects of stress on our performance as caregivers. This event is open to any hospital employees, volunteers, patients, families, or members of the Mary Immaculate Hospital’s community who would like help dealing with their stressors.
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (Bring a brown bag lunch if you would like!)
