Turning Distress into Joy Webinar
Webinar Description: Since the beginning of humanity, people have struggled with difficult circumstances and experiences. Long before the advent of modern medicine and formal psychological practice, individuals used various techniques, both as part of faith and secular traditions, to overcome traumatic events, improve mood, decrease anxiety, and develop a greater sense of resiliency for whatever challenges they encountered. Over the past few decades, research has increasingly indicated that these strategies, which are freely available to all, have specific health benefits for an individual's physical, social, and psychological well-being. Studies have indicated that when used strategically and intelligently, they can unlock healing processes that are both understood and mysterious in nature.

Learning Objectives:
• Discuss time-honored, research-driven strategies for improving mood, decreasing anxiety, and improving resiliency among other positive psychological, physical, and social outcomes.
• Explain specific keys important in using these strategies well.
• Describe practical ways psychologists can apply these techniques to clinical practice & education and use in their own lives.
