HARTWICK COLLEGE — A virtual edition of Hartwick College’s spring O’Connor Chair Lecture will be presented at 7 p.m. Friday, March 5.
According to a media release, a four-member panel will discuss “Self-Care in Times of Stress: Strategies to Promote Stress Relief, Coping and Overall Psychological Well-Being.” The evolving public health and practice perspectives, during what has come to be described as a time of uncertainty, will be explored. Principles of self-care in relation to managing anxiety and depression, the use of alternative therapies such as hypnotherapy and strategies for maintaining healthy habits will be included. A question-and-answer session will follow.
Guest speakers include Helen Battisti, a registered and certified dietitian nutritionist; Francis L. Battisti, an educator, psychotherapist, consultant and author in the fields of motivation, health enhancement and conflict disposition; Lisa Daly, behavioral health director for NEPA Community Health Care in Binghamton since 2016; and Linda Thomson, nurse practitioner and approved consultant in clinical hypnosis.
