VYP Webinar Replays

Dr. Daniel Libby

The events in Afghanistan are just the latest “trigger” that has many veterans dealing with significant mental, emotional, physical, sleep, and substance use challenges.

The webinar, hosted by VA-trained Clinical Psychologist, and Founder of VYP, Dr. Daniel Libby, will present an easy-to-follow model that will help you to create the space needed to support your loved ones as they recover from extreme stress or trauma.

This will provide an overview to the Mindful Resilience approach to trauma recovery, stress management, and the path from posttraumatic stress to posttraumatic growth. Participants will leave with an understanding of how recovery from posttraumatic stress happens, and concrete ways that they can support the recovery of their loved ones.

During this session, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from Dr. Daniel Libby, as well as learn about the resources and tools Veterans Yoga Project offers to caregivers.
