Coping During Uncertain Times
May 27, 2020 from 11:00 to 12:00 pm           or           June 16, 2020 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm

People have a powerful need to understand and predict their environments in order to feel in control. When we are exposed to potential threats to our well-being, we naturally respond to this uncertainty with anxiety and fear. This training will address ways of effectively coping with uncertainty in today’s media-saturated world. The course will examine how to remain positive and functional despite the risks of living in a changing world. Included will be practical tips for coping with uncertainty, re-establishing control and how to speak to children about fear.

Balancing Work and Life
May 28, 2020 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm               or           June 11, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm

Using the philosophy that “those who are happy at home perform better on the job,” this workshop was developed for those who feel burdened with too many responsibilities and without enough time for personal enjoyment. This workshop will help participants explore and define home responsibilities, identify career requirements and prioritize leisure time. The resulting better balance will help achieve more in one’s career and at home.

Living with Change
June 2, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm                 or           June 16, 2020 from 11:00 to 12:00 pm

Whether going back to school or changing careers, starting a family or retiring, change brings both opportunities and turmoil. In today’s fast paced world, change has become a constant. Even when we are able to see the advantages of change, it can be hard to say goodbye to what’s changing. This workshop will provide you techniques to deal effectively with change.

Laughter, Humor and Play to Reduce Stress and Solve Problems
June 4, 2020 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm                 or            June 24, 2020 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm

Professional comedians shouldn’t be the only people to use smiling, laughter, humor and play as part of their daily routine. These skills are valuable for everyone. A good smile has long been a key tool for anyone who needs to influence others. Laughter is now shown to improve our pain tolerance. Humor and play can be the building blocks of problem-solving. Together they can improve our happiness and effectiveness.
