Addressing Anxiety Before Your Holiday Celebration
November 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
It’s time for the holidays! It’s a season of gathering, of joy, and, yes, of anxiety. Unfortunately, for individuals in the celiac and gluten-sensitive community, the thought of gathering with family and friends can bring unwanted additional stress to what should be a time of celebration. You want to enjoy the moments and your host wants to do everything that they can to lower your red flags. So, what can we do to bring the “happy” back to the holidays?
Join the National Celiac Association on November 16th, 2023 at 7:00pm ET for a discussion about anxiety at the holiday table and how to improve your mental wellness during this stressful time of the year. Dr. Deena Abbe, PhD and licensed clinical psychologist, will be joining us for a discussion and a Q&A session around anxiety and holiday eating. We will also address the stressors felt by those hosting family and friends with special dietary needs.
This complimentary webinar is open to all ages. When you register, you may submit a question that you would like for us to talk about during our roundtable discussion. Your mental wellness is an important part of your journey so kick off your holiday season on November 16th and join us for an evening of open conversation, education, and personal empowerment.
