HPW Hosts Online Event: Compassion for Self & Others during Times of Uncertainty

NEW YORK – On Thursday, June 25, 7:30-8:30 PM EDT, Hellenic Professional Women hosts a free online event, titled Compassion for Self & Others during Times of Uncertainty, presented by Evelyn Bilias Lolis, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Psychological & Educational Consultation, Graduate School of Education & Allied Professions at Fairfield University.

This interactive discussion, via Zoom meeting, will detail how self-compassion, or a woman's merciful evaluation of herself, can serve as a wellspring for resiliency, connection, and the ability to weather the myriad of work, personal and social responsibilities that women are called to balance each day. Participants will learn how to apply the science of compassion in a way that can tangibly impact their relationships, careers, and health.
