Groton Wellness Hosts Stress Management and Resiliency Training

Groton Wellness is excited to announce SMART: Stress Management and Resiliency Training beginning August 29 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The program, developed by the Benson-Henry Institute in collaboration with Harvard Medical School, will run for eight consecutive Thursdays through October 24. Its overall purpose is to provide knowledge and guidance towards developing attitudes and behaviors that counter stress, reduce symptoms and enhance people’s resiliency and well-being.

Stress is an inflammatory brain-body response that causes or exacerbates symptoms and illnesses. The first class will review the science of stress and the relaxation response. Participants will learn about the many behaviors, attitudes and thoughts that lead to the stress response as well as those that help elicit the relaxation response. All remaining classes will focus the first hour on learning and experiencing a meditation method. The second hour will focus on building skill in a variety of cognitive strategies that help create adaptive responses to stress. Each class will also provide motivational and behavioral strategies that support successful behavior change.

Halfway through the program, participants will attend a 30-minute individual medical visit with their program provider. Within one month of program end, participants will attend a 30-minute discharge visit to help them retain the skills they have learned.

Cost: $550. Location: 493-495 Main St., Groton. Register at
