Course Description:

The first half of this talk will cover points on the effect of stress on the immune system. The last half will be teaching participants both how to diaphragmatically breathe for themselves, and how to teach it to others either in person, or for distance teaching. Given the state of the world during this time, it is important to understand how stress is playing a role in our health, both short and long term, and have more tools to help us to cope with the increase in stress.

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will be able to:

  • Participants will be able to discuss the relationship between stress and the immune system.
  • Participants will be able to recognize the effect that stress has on breathing.
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate slow diaphragmatic breathing and how to create a way to teach others.

Level: Introductory

Content is designed for psychologists who may have little to no background in a specialized skill or content area.  Through this level of programming, the learner can become acquainted with the theoretical underpinnings, principles, methods, and perspectives of a content area. An introductory level program also may serve as the foundation for subsequent intermediate and advanced learning. Introductory level programming may also be related to an emerging area of knowledge or practice. Although this content can be used as a foundation for more advanced learning, an introductory level program may simply focus on breadth, enrichment or general knowledge.  

Who Should Attend: Anyone looking to improve their diaphragmatic breathing either for themselves, or for training others and to have a better understanding on stress on our immune system.
