The pandemic and other stressors have made the general public realize what mindfulness practitioners have known for centuries: Stress is a direct cause of burnout, illness and death. Anne-Marie was already committed to practicing mindfulness when her father developed Alzheimer’s and her mother Lewy body dementia. She was able to get through this extreme difficulty far better than did the 67% of caregivers who die before those for whom they are caring.
Following this experience, she focused all her professional attention on promoting mindfulness. In this podcast, she breaks down the principles and practices in a way that anyone can follow. You don’t have to try difficult yoga positions. Sometimes you only need to take several deep breaths or watch a child or an animal happily playing. When criticized at work, instead of flaring up, you can ask what you can do.
The mindfulness practices Anne-Marie describes can be practiced at any time of the day and in any setting. She names laughter and music as two particularly effective stress busters, citing a study from Wisconsin in which patients with dementia reduced their intake of medication by 90% through listening to music when they got agitated.
It costs nothing to begin to explore mindfulness and stress relief practices, and you may save your health. More and more medical doctors are coming to believe Dr. Deepak Chopra’s claim that stress causes 90% of illness.
This podcast can make a big difference in how you handle your physical and mental health.

Domestic Violence – How LNCs help Attorneys is a live cast virtual conference 2-Day event designed for LNC and forensic nurses just like you.
You’ve seen the victims of violence – the woman with bruises or lacerations or broken bones who mutters about walking into a door, or falling down stairs. You know that these stories don’t ring true.
One of four women in the U.S. and one in seven men have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
Alternatives to Violence
Throughout the conference, you’ll hear about the traumatic injuries from the perspective of the victim. What can be done to help the perpetrator?

SAFE’s strategies and tools have been developed through work with perpetrators and victims of violence since 1982.
Teresa Devitt Lynch and I have the answers for how you can most effectively help criminal defense attorneys and prosecutors. As a forensic nurse, Teresa developed deep expertise in how to share her knowledge of intimate partner violence to help attorneys.
Attorneys who handle these cases are stymied by
- Medical injuries
- Medical records
- Medical evidence
