NMSU hosts stress, resilience webinar series


The New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service’s (CES) stress and resilience team will offer the third installment in its webinar series this fall. Beginning in September, the five-part webinar series, “Stress and Resilience in a Covid World,” will provide strategies to manage stress and build resilience as communities begin to reopen.

 The free live webinar will be held 2 to 3 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 30 to Oct. 28. It will be recorded for those unable to attend the live broadcasts. The session topics were selected based on survey results from past participants.

“Our goal is to provide individuals with the tools to cope with stress during challenging times,” said NMSU CES Doña Ana County Family and Consumer Sciences agent Bea Favela. “Coping with stress in healthy ways can benefit you, the people you care about and those around you to become more resilient.”

 The webinar series began in May 2020 with “Stress and Resilience: Thriving in a Demanding World,” which was in response to people feeling stressed about the pandemic. The second series, held in February and March 2021, “Coping with Covid Burnout,” provided information about managing the ongoing or chronic stress associated with the pandemic.

Webinar series team members include Favela, CES Extension Family Life specialist Karim Martinez, Bernalillo County Family and Consumer Sciences agent Dianne Christensen, Mora County Extension agent Suzanne DeVos-Cole, CES associate Lourdes Olivas and CES nutritional specialist Karen Plawecki.
