Elissa Epel, PhD

Dr. Epel will describe how chronic stress of caregiving has a toll on both emotional wellbeing and physical health. However, while being a caregiver is often a situation beyond one’s control, is not a deterministic fate for worsened health, in fact, it can provide opportunities for building stress mastery, and greater meaning, and ways of coping with stress that minimize the usual wear and tear of a chronic stress exposure. She will describe her studies on links between types of adversity and psychological coping processes with bodily cell aging, and what we are learning from interventions about how to reverse or at least slow cellular aging.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify three ways that chronic stress can impair health.
  • Define how caregiving is different than other types of chronically stressful situations (like job stress). What makes it unique.
  • Describe how the skill of mindfulness can reduce stress. What are other ways of minimizing caregiver stress.
