AIAP would like to invite you to its September 2021 virtual general meeting.
Our guest speaker will be Dr. Peyman Raoofi. He will discuss "Healthy ways to handle life’s stressors".
Stressful experiences are a normal part of life, and a survival mechanism that primes us to respond to threats. But when a stressor is negative or becomes unmanageable and can’t be fought off or avoided, our biological responses to stress can impair our physical and mental health. In this presentation differences between Stress and Anxiety will be discussed and evidence-based tools will be looked at to tackle stress in healthy ways.
