Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

  • Date: Monday MARCH 20th, 2017
  • Time: 7:15 P.M. to 9:00 PM
  • Place: Aldersgate United Methodist Church
    2313 Concord Pike (Rt. 202)
    Wilmington, Delaware.

    Whether or not we have experienced trauma, mindfulness is a practice that is extremely useful for stress reduction and for overall mental health and well being.

    Please join us as we welcome back Jenna Tedesco, Psy.D., to expand on last month’s presentation on mindfulness. Dr. Tedesco will review the research related to mindfulness as it pertains to mental health wellness, regardless of diagnosis or trauma history. There will be extensive time during the presentation to experience the practice of mindfulness so that attendees will come away with practical tools to use at home.

    Jenna Tedesco, Psy.D., is a licensed psychologist who uses an integrative approach incorporating mindfulness-based techniques with cognitive therapy. She works with Alliance Counseling and the Wilmington Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Wilmington, Delaware.

    Unless otherwise noted, support meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month and educational meetings are held on the third Monday. All meetings are open to the public. However, support meetings are only open to persons 18 years of age and older who have depression or bipolar disorder, and their adult family and friends. The New Directions Charter and tax status legally restricts us to adult participants. All meetings are free; to defray expenses, donations are requested but not required.
