Live @ Lunch!: Lise Van Susteren and Stacey Colino — Emotional Inflammation

Upcoming Event
Saturday, May 23, 2020 - 1:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our Live @ Lunch! Series. 

If the news has you feeling frequently anxious or outraged, you’re not alone. If you’ve suffered from sleep problems, hyper-reactivity, persistent grief, or inescapable worry about the future—especially triggered by today's nonstop news cycle—then you’re probably dealing with emotional inflammation, a state not unlike post-traumatic stress. The good news is: there’s something you can do about it. Join psychiatrist Lise Van Susteren, M.D., and writer Stacey Colino for a powerful discussion about their new book, Emotional Inflammation, and learn how to become more grounded and resilient in turbulent times. Together they will present a breakthrough guide for addressing this uniquely modern affliction. They'll begin by helping you determine your “reactor type” to better understand how your body and mind respond to stress overload. Whether your type is Nervous, Revved, Molten, or Retreating, the authors will address the vital steps you need to recover balance, resilience, and joy in your life.

Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business. 

You can also support this event by purchasing a copy of the book from our website. 

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
