Stress Less Series


A 4-part series focused on helping you take control of your life, manage life’s stressors and challenges, and become more resilient in everyday situations.

Sandwiched Into Caregiving

September 4, 12 – 1 p.m.,  INTS 1121

The Sandwich generation refers to those who care for parents or grandparents while supporting children or grandchildren. Balancing your personal life, work, children/grandchildren and caregiving responsibilities and needs can be extremely exhausting. Learn ways to be proactive with life decisions, access key resources to assist you, and prioritize self-care while caregiving.

Coping with Grief and Loss

September 11, 12 – 1 p.m.,  INTS 1121

Loss is an inevitable part of life, and grief is a natural part of the healing process. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never go away. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can allow you to move on.

Financial Wellness

September 18, 12 – 1 p.m.,  INTS 1121

Establishing and maintaining healthy spending and saving habits is as important to one's wellbeing as proper nutrition and regular exercise. Learn ways to achieve financial wellness – the balance between living responsibly today and planning wisely for tomorrow - to ensure a successful financial future.

The Road to Resiliency

September 25, 12 – 1 p.m.,  INTS 1121

How do you deal with difficult events those changes your life?  The death of a loved one, loss of a job, serious illness, terrorist attacks and other traumatic events: these are all examples of very challenging life experiences. How do you adapt over time to life-changing situations and stressful conditions? Join the UCR Faculty and Staff Assistance Program for an introduction to resiliency, factors that affect how people deal with hardship, and develop your own personal strategy for enhancing resilience.
