Stress Busters Introductory Workshop Series - 5 Steps to Deal with Stress

Stress comes in many ways. It’s that uneasy feeling we get when we're upset -- whether it's because we're angry, worried, depressed or disturbed for other reasons.  For many of us, it’s hard not to be stressed and anxious in the midst of challenging times.

In Stress Buster workshops, we’ll learn how stress starts and a simple effective method to handle your reaction to situations. You’ll learn a five step process to reduce stress and help you better respond to any situation in a helpful way, instead of getting upset. Stress Busters (also known as Ding Sum) has been serving seniors in San Francisco for over 30 years, reaching 900 people through monthly in person seminars, and now via Zoom!

This monthly workshop series starting on April 1st is fun and practical. Leave each session with new practical insights on how to better handle whatever life throws at you. This Introductory series will be held monthly on the first Thursday of the month at 10AM. It is intended for anyone who hasn't done Stress Busters workshops before, or for anyone who would like a refresher on the Stress Busters technique. It's OK if you aren't able to attend every month. Dr. Lee will provide a review each month for people who miss workshops, so mark you calendar and join in when you can!


Learn the basics about the 5 steps and how to apply them (1. Stop, 2. Assess, 3. Decide, 4. Do, 5. Re-evaluate) in this 8 month series. OK if you need to miss some meetings in the series - join again when you can!



In addition to the Introduction to Stress Busters workshop series, NEXT Village offers "Intermediate" level workshops and discussion groups to those who have already attended Stress Busters workshops and are familiar with the five steps. See the NEXT Village calendar for dates.
