Dr. Bruce Rabin is a Professor at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School where he has done research focusing on maintaining health rather than on disease treatment. Dr. Rabin has found that stress exerts a profound influence on health.
This presentation will offer education to help you understand the mental and physical effects of stress and will provide you with skills that will minimize the effect of stress on your health. This session is intended for healthy individuals who will benefit from increased stress-coping skills, and also for individuals with diseases where stress coping can promote an enhanced sense of well-being and possibly influence the course of diseases, such as hypertension, depression, asthma, arthritis, cancer, atherosclerotic heart disease, chronic pain, sleep disturbances, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and inflammatory bowel disease.
