Therapeutic Yoga Tools for Race-Based Traumatic Stress

Thursday, November 17, 2022
9:00 am Pacific Time/12:00 pm Eastern Time

Everyone has a cultural context and a racial and ethnic identity. We all have experiences, sometimes painful ones, that arise out of our racial and ethnic background. Xenophobia and racism are on the rise and harmful to the health and well-being of those directly impacted. As such the wellness community needs to be prepared to address issues of race and ethnicity with patients and co-workers. To do so effectively providers need to be emotionally prepared as well as racially, ethnically and culturally informed.

In this Grand Rounds we will discuss:

1. The necessity of self-study as preparation for addressing racial stress and trauma

2. High effort coping as a culturally adaptive strategy

3. How Restorative Yoga can aid in restoring balance to a chronically stressed overtaxed  nervous system

Learning Objectives

1. Participants will be able to identify 3 yoga therapy tools for effectively addressing racial stress and trauma.

2. Participants will be able to define high-effort coping.

3. Participants will be able to identify 5 health benefits of Restorative Yoga.

Best Practices for Assessing Journal and Conference Integrity

Researchers receive an increasing number of e-mail invitations to publish or present their work, including invitations from journals that take fees without providing peer-review, archiving, or indexing of research outputs, and conferences that do not even exist. Compromised journals and conferences waste resources and threaten scientific integrity. This presentation will describe the common characteristics of these predatory invitations and equip you with tools to avoid reputational and financial risk.
