Department of Family Social Science Professor Tai Mendenhall will build upon Pauline Boss’s November 9 discussion about our contemporary stressors and troubled times.
In this session, Mendenhall will describe how—despite knowing that attention to our own self-care and (inter)personal well-being is essential—practicing what we preach is easier said than done. Drawing from efforts advanced through undergraduate, graduate, and medical residency teaching, clinical practice, and trauma-response teams, Mendenhall will articulate common symptoms of burnout and compassion fatigue. He will then describe empirically proven strategies that harness our resources across individual, couple/family, and social-systems continua. Participants will receive tangible resources and tools to facilitate biopsychosocial/spiritual health. (the caption for the photo also has a doctor to be removed)
Abby Rombalski, a lecturer in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction (C&I), has been working with youth towards racial justice across school, community, and digital spaces. Through her research, Rombalski found that young people need a dedicated space and targeted support to help them create sustainable social change. This led Rombalski, alongside community and University youth, to found YoUthROC in 2019.
