A C20 Gender Equality & Women’s Empowerment Working Group side event titled “Stress Relieving Techniques for Mothers with Differently-abled Children”, was offered to mothers with children having severe disorders like DMD (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder characterized by progressive muscle degeneration).
The event was in collaboration with Mind Empowered, BharathMD Foundation, Fyera Foundation and Heartmath Institute.
Simple and practical heart-based techniques were offered to help bring more ease, patience, compassion and renewal, into daily interactions and family life, based on the HeartMath evidence-based system for self-regulation and well-being for adults and children, the science and intelligence of the heart.
Key matters addressed during the course:
- Reducing Stress.
- Regulating and Managing Emotions.
- Coping with difficulties that mothers face.
