Lynn Jimenez is back. You might remember her from episode 354 where we talked about her business Connect-Flow-Grow and working with kids and families with social emotional support.
Today we are talking about Stress and more specifically helping educators deal with it.
Lynn Jimenez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has over 10 years experience as an educator in California. Her school based experience includes working with students in foster care and on probation, supporting school districts in developing trauma informed practices, creating innovative programs to drive state policy change, implementing Restorative Practices, and developing school based substance abuse and mental health programs. As a therapist, Lynn's niche is stress response system activation, which includes daily stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma responses. Her favorite tools to help neutralize the stress response system are 1) nurturing relationships and 2) mindfulness.
Lynn founded Connect Flow Grow to address the growing need for students to have more social emotional support, helping schools partner with parents to develop these skills in the home, so students come to school ready, willing, and able to learn.
Today, We will be talking about stress! What it is and how to manage it. Lynn's expertise is the stress response system and helping people understand what stress is so they can effectively reduce and live more enjoyable lives. This is critical for educators, who as caregivers are already vulnerable to burnout - which is only heightened as we continue to grapple with a global pandemic.
