Surviving Stress

$37

with Carole Freeman, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

How to take your emotional system from Depletion to Renewal

It’s estimated that more than 90% of people who suffer with chronic anxiety or stress have breathing pattern disorders. Also known as dysfunctional breathing. The nervous system’s normal response to stress, anxiety, frustration fear, all involve stimulating a particular breathing pattern of shallow, upper airway, open mouth breathing, with tightened abdominals, which are designed to help us run from a burning building or fight off an attacker. If we are under chronic mental, emotional, or physical stress, this breathing pattern becomes a habit as our ‘default’ breathing which is not good because it stimulates the brain to perceive more stress and anxiety. At this point, this ‘default’ breathing pattern is working against us and is known as “dysfunctional”.

The Teen Brain

$195

with UGot Class, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

One of the most turbulent periods in brain development occurs during adolescence. The teen brain actually functions very differently from the adult brain. Certain kinds of thinking, such as decision-making, actually happen in different parts of the brain for adolescents and adults.  

Understanding these complex changes can help calm the rough seas of the teen years, but also provide your teen with critical support and understanding that will promote better decision-making, better mental health, and better outcomes at school.  

Come find out the important ways in which the teen brain is developing. Identify behaviors and attitudes that are influenced by these changes. Then learn to offer constructive strategies for establishing a better understanding of and communication with your amazing teen.
