Webinar: Commission for Women – “Mindfulness for Stress Holidays and “Mindfulness for Stress Management During the Holidays and Beyond”
December 7, 2021, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Join the Penn State College of Medicine Commission for Women for “Mindfulness for Stress Management During the Holidays and Beyond,” featuring Neda Gould, PhD, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Gould is a clinical psychologist and assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins. She also serves as director of the Mindfulness Program and associate director of the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Anxiety Disorders Clinic.
In addition to treating patients with anxiety and depression, one of her primary areas of interest is teaching mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and other mindfulness programs to patients, faculty and staff.
Mindfulness meditation is a form of present-moment awareness—just noticing what is happening inside our bodies and in the world around us as it is happening. Many research studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can reduce stress, as well as symptoms of depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance and pain.
