Many people today are rapidly finding themselves in need of strategies for coping with our hectic world—whether we’re overwhelmed by work or school, our families or communities, or engagement in social justice or environmental advocacy. Author Laura van Dernoot Lipsky contends that just a few subtle shifts can help ease our burdens, restore our perspective, and give us strength to move forward.
Lipsky invites us to a day of strategizing ways to mitigate harm and act with integrity in 2020. She invites participants from all professional disciplines and life circumstances to a tactically-focused training on how to sustain ourselves amidst overwhelming times.
Laura van Dernoot Lipsky has been formally involved in front-line trauma work and teaching on issues surrounding systematic oppression and structural supremacy for over three decades. She is the author of two best-selling and award-winning books, The Age of Overwhelm: Strategies for the Long Haul and Trauma Stewardship: An Everyday Guide to Caring for Self While Caring for Others.
