The HOPE Strategy for Resilience

Wednesday, May 26, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.


With the pandemic, many have experienced an increase in both acute and chronic anxiety and mood symptoms. This presentation will focus on the HOPE strategy to improve resilience in coping with anxiety. It will also identify ways for caregivers to help others as well as themselves.
