Staying Present in the Face of Disconnection: Strengthening Skills for Your Practice and Your Life

August 6 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

In this webinar, Fiona Sutherland, APD, will explore the core elements of mindful presence then invite us to consider ways in which we both connect, and disconnect in everyday life as well as in our work. We’ll then move to explore what we mean by “tough conversations” & how we can recognize our own tendencies or responses when under varying amounts of stress. Bring your paper and pen because there’ll be pause points where you’ll invited to reflect, and develop an individualized skillset you can take into practice with you.


Learning Objectives:

  1. To understand what “presence” looks like, sounds like, and feels like
  2. To recognize when and why we disconnect from others, and ourselves
  3. To develop three individualized vital skills we can take in to practice with us
