Dr. Brenda Crawford, personal counselor at Morningside College, will give a presentation “Stress and Time Management” at 8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 30, in the Roadman Lounge of Roadman Hall, 3600 Peters Avenue.
The public is invited to the free event, which is sponsored by Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS).
Crawford’s presentation will examine whether there is an optimal level of stress, healthy vs. unhealthy stress, stress management strategies, relaxation techniques, and psychological, physical, and relational responses to stress.
Students who attend the event will have an opportunity to complete a stress vulnerability questionnaire to help them assess the level of stress in their lives.
Crawford has been at Morningside since 2005. She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology and a doctorate in counseling psychology from Iowa State University in Ames. She did her pre-doctoral internship in the Department of Psychology at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.
Before coming to Morningside, Crawford was a staff counselor and director of the Eating Disorders Treatment Program at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.
