Free webinar addresses self-esteem and albinism.

Stares, Smirks & Shout-Outs: How to Deal with Negative Experiences in Public and Maintain Self-esteem and Dignity in Difficult Situations, is a new video available free on YouTube (<www.youtube. com/watch?v = osT9KLSSc6w>) from the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation (NOAH). The video includes the audio recording and slides provided in an hour-long session on how people with albinism can maintain their self-esteem and dignity in difficult situations. Speaker Kelsey Thompson, who largely based the seminar on her own experiences, explores the emotions, behaviors, and thought processes that negative experiences bring about in individuals with albinism and discusses tips to minimize their impact. Ms. Thompson is a certified rehabilitation counselor, certified case manager, and licensed clinical professional counselor; she is also a person with albinism who has held several leadership positions within NOAH.
