Co-sponsered with Stanford Coordinated Care.  This 6-week workshop, also known as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), is ideal for individuals with ongoing and persistent health conditions, and also for caregivers. The workshop is designed to help people feel better, manage symptoms, and gain confidence in their ability to lead active and purposeful lives. Developed and evaluated at Stanford 20 years ago, the program is now offered across the US and internationally. Healthy eating, exercise planning, communication skills, dealing with frustration, fatigue, and pain, making informed treatment decisions and other disease-related problem solving will be explored. The environment of mutual support and shared success helps to facilitate lasting positive changes.

Each participant in the workshop receives a copy of the companion book, Living a Healthy Life With Chronic Conditions, and an audio relaxation CD, Relaxation for Mind and Body.

Instructor: Nastasia Poso CMA. Ms. Poso works as a patient care coordinator in the Stanford Coordinated Care Clinic. She is a certified Trainer for CDSMP and has a background in wellness, health coaching, mindfulness meditation and disease management.
