Toxic & Positive Stress: How to Maintain a Healthy Balance with Dr. Alexandra Crosswell
Decades of research demonstrates that some forms of stress are toxic for our brains and bodies, while other forms can actually enhance performance. What is the difference between toxic and positive stress, and can we turn one form into another? Dr. Crosswell will discuss the science of stress, including evidence-based practices to build and maintain stress resilience. Program is presented by St. Charles Health System with additional support from Brooks Resources Corporation, the Associated Students of COCC and the Associated Students of OSU-Cascades.
