The next Live Well talk, “Learn How to De-Stress with Music,” led by Crystal Weaver and Andrew Dwiggins of the Saint Louis University Cancer Center Music Therapy Program will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., June 15, in the Multipurpose Room, Allied Health Professions Building.
During the sessions, participants will learn how stress affects the body, what the benefits of actively engaging in stress management are, and how simple music therapy techniques can be implemented at home and at work to intentionally minimize stress in daily living and to alleviate anxiety. At the Saint Louis University Cancer Center, Music Therapy is utilized to assist patients with decreasing anxiety, stress, and physical pain while increasing social support and quality of life.
Another session in the ‘Live Well’ program will take place in July. It will discuss Catholic social teaching in the workplace. More information and registration for the July session is available here.
