It is common knowledge that stress affects our health adversely. It is an equally well known fact that we react differently to situations when we are under stress than we would otherwise. So it is not such a great stretch to realize that stress can be used to undermine someone in an adversarial situation. Is there anything that can be done to mitigate the damage caused by these dirty tactics?
Joining us On The Commons this week we have Dr. Karen Huffer. Dr. Huffer is an author, associate professor, researcher, speaker and consultant. We will talk about the effects of stress not only in our daily lives but how stress can affect us in specific situations, including tactics used in court to dehumanize individuals. She will share some tricks on how to handle those specific situations. She has devoted her career to ensuring that people with disabilities have equal access to services.
