HOW TO DEAL
With psychotherapist and poet Genya Turovsky
7pm, Thursday, Dec 15
Join us for an evening with psychotherapist and poet Genya Turovsky to talk about self-care and mental well being in the age of political madness. As protests and other forms of activism begin to take shape, how does one cultivate those inner resources one needs to not feel so burdened or anxious? How does one recognize depression, anxiety, and other mental states that contribute to feelings of emotional and political disempowerment? And are there ways to maintain, and even increase, some semblance of composure, resilience, even courage, for one self in the face of the current political situation?
This event is free. Space is limited. RSVP at [email protected]
Turovsky will talk about her experience as a certified therapist and offer some insight into these and other questions.
