The Long Island Chapter invites you to Rediscovering Joy. Hosted by the Health & Wellness Committee. This program is the 5th in The Seasons of Self-care series.
Dr. Sharon Grand discusses the impact of cognitive, emotional, and relational stressors on women and provides insight on healing and finding happiness. This power-point presentation explores the roles we have taken on as women, daughters, mothers, and grandmothers and addresses some of the ways that women’s roles have historically evolved in American culture. How do we follow our own paths as opposed to the pursuing the unconscious expectations that society imposes? How do some of the world events happening now impact women specifically? Most importantly, how do we take a psychologically informed approach to begin our healing?
