American Dental Association on-demand webinar
This presentation was recorded on April 19, 2022

These techniques can support individuals, and can be used in all practice environments and educational settings, especially in times of uncertainty and prolonged stress. Presenter Sheela Raja, PhD, is an author, associate professor at University of Illinois Chicago, and director of the UIC College of Dentistry Resilience Center.

Learning Objectives
