Hartnell educator in residence talks about depression

Hartnell Community College's educator in residence Anne Benvenuti will hold a series of workshops this week that are open to the public.

Benvenuti draws on her experience from 24 years as a psychology and philosophy professor at Cerro Coso Community College to build her conversations.

Wednesday, March 11
Nursing and Allied Health students, Building K-Mainstage, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Topic: Preventing Burnout and Building Resilience for Health Care Professionals

Thursday, March 12
Building K-125 at 6:00 p.m.
Topic: Gender, Depression, and Social Change

* Blog Update: Depression is currently the third-ranked non-communicable disease, according to the World Health Organization. Although there are many differences in how depression manifests and is treated around the world, gendered patterns of coping and depression are broadly similar across most cultures, and therefore provide an excellent opportunity for intervention. In this series of events, Benvenuti will draw from her six years of experience as a member of the United Nations NGO Committee for Mental Health and Education, and her practice and teaching in the field of psychology in order to provide a broad perspective on these issues, inclusive of self-care practices to build resilience and prevent depression.

The session will be streamlined. To register for the webinar, click here. After you register, a confirmation email will contain information about joining the webinar.

Benvenuti will return the week of April 16-17, 2015 with the topic Spirit unleashed: reimagining human-animal relations; and May 29, 2015 with Educator in residence closing activity.
