Wellness and Resilience in the Face
of Tremendous Challenge
Brian Baird, Ph.D
Your state, our nation, and the world are still dealing with COViD19 and the effects will be with us far longer than we wish. People have lost lives, loved ones, jobs, businesses, homes, savings, and dreams. Still, whether this virus recedes or recurs, life must and will go on even though normal will not be the same normal as before. This means - we must find new ways to deal with a new reality.
Dr. Brian Baird, clinical psychologist, former member of Congress and University of Wyoming alum, will discuss the personal and social impacts of our collective experiences and explore ways of emerging with new insights into life, work, wellness and resilience. While serving in Congress in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001, Dr. Baird initiated and led training to help congressional staff and colleagues deal with their own emotional reactions while also helping them more effectively serve their constituents' needs. As the COVID-19 crises escalated, he stepped in again to offer similar training for congressional staff. These effective seminars were incredibly well received and much appreciated by staff and members of Congress.
Drawing from those experiences, decades of clinical practice and the latest research into trauma and resilience, Dr. Baird will offer practical, tested ways of helping us manage our own reactions to challenging events and helping those we live and work with do so as well.
