Instructor: Elizabeth Wexler 

Brought to you by Odyssey   

January 29, 2024 - March 04, 2024 (6 Sessions)  

Monday,  6PM ET  

Virtual via Zoom 



Course Description: Self-care can be challenging at any time–but we are living in extraordinary times. The more chaos around us, the more important self-care becomes. How can an understanding of the stress response and a trauma-informed perspective help us take better care of ourselves? Elizabeth Wexler breaks down these concepts in a manner that makes them accessible to all, and students will leave this course with both a deeper understanding of their own self-care needs, and practical methods for getting them met.
