Creating Space for Recovery: A Webinar for Veteran Caregivers
VA-trained Clinical Psychologist, and Founder of VYP, Dr. Daniel Libby will present an easy-to-follow model that will help you to create the space needed to support your loved ones as they recover from extreme stress or trauma.
The events in Afghanistan are just the latest "trigger" that has many veterans dealing with significant mental, emotional, physical, sleep, and substance use challenges. The webinar will present an overview of the Mindful Resilience approach to trauma recovery and stress management and the path from posttraumatic stress to posttraumatic growth. Participants will leave with an understanding of how recovery from posttraumatic stress happens, and concrete ways that they can support the recovery of their loved ones.
Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook and pen. We will do some mindful breathing and focusing but this is not a yoga class.
