Session Description: 

Crisis is inevitable, deeply challenging and oftentimes isolating. Add a dose of pandemic and the scales can begin to tip toward panic. Coping with chaos is not one size fits all. Offering practical solutions and even a few laughs, this talk will walk us through the myriad of ways we cope with stress and which ones are keepers for our toolkit.  This presentation will be a conversation on the realities of coping during stressful times, identifying practical solutions and the importance of the gift of grace.
