AFTD 2020 Education Conference Webinar: Self-Care, Mindfulness and Remaining Positive

April 16, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Throughout April, AFTD will present a series of webinars reflecting material originally developed for the 2020 AFTD Education Conference, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The material has been adapted to reflect the current climate.

Caring for a loved one with FTD is a difficult journey even in the best of times. Over the last month its difficulty has grown exponentially, as social distancing and quarantining have become common in our lives. In this webinar, registered yoga teacher and AFTD Ambassador Corey Esannason will present and demonstrate ways to help FTD caregivers cope during this stressful and uncertain time. The presentation will offer participants the opportunity to learn a variety of stress-management and -reduction techniques, as well as simple mindfulness-based exercises such as breathing and relaxation practices. AFTD Scientific Director Nadine Tatton, PhD, will facilitate.

Register here. If you are unable to watch the webinar as it streams live, the presentation will be recorded and archived on our website within one week of broadcast. (Click here to view our entire catalog of Educational Webinars.)
