Dr. Brenda Greene and Marita Golden discuss The Wide Circumference of Love, a novel that explores the impact of Alzheimer’s on a professional Black family in Washington D.C.  They explore why this story is important in the Black community and the ways loved ones support and care for their family during times of crisis. Love is a recurring theme in the fiction, essays, and memoirs of Golden. She emphasizes the power and importance of family, love and self-care, and pens a well-crafted novel that captures the indomitable spirit that allows one to cope with loss and grief.

Mindfulness Exercise for Stress & Anxiety

Event Date: 12/18/2017 1:30:00 PM Mindfulness is a practice of learning to attend to the present moment with more acceptance.  It is a systematic way of slowing down, observing one’s reactions, and relating to experiences with greater ease and compassion.  Mindfulness has been shown to enhance well-being by reducing the impact of stress and helping people cope with symptoms of anxiety and depression.  In addition, mindfulness can be applied to managing urges and cravings to use substances or other problematic behaviors such as self-injury and over-eating.
