  • The Sandwich Generation: Balancing Your Personal Life with the Needs of Your Older Parents or Loved Ones - Register to Attend
    • Date: Wednesday, April 17, 2024
    • Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am
    • Description: Most of us reach a point in life when parents or elderly relatives begin to require more attention and time, and sometimes, our financial support as well. Caring for an older person can be complicated and few of us are trained for the many aspects of that care. Providing care for an elder is a very personal matter. No two situations are the same and there are no simple solutions. You can, though, benefit from following some practical suggestions. Balancing work, family and care-giving responsibilities can present some challenges. This workshop provides an overview of information to help the participant cope with their personal life while dealing with their elder’s needs.
  • Being Adaptive in an Ever-Changing World - Register to Attend
    • Date: Wednesday, July 17, 2024
    • Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    • Description: “Because we’ve always done it like that,” may not be the best answer to, “Why do we do the things we do?” In our ever-changing world, we are seeing shifts in our markets and economies, our cultural norms, our behaviors, and ourselves. Now is the time to thrive by learning how to be adaptive and to be consistently able to change yourself to accommodate and maximize the benefits of change.

  • Laughter, Humor and Play to Reduce Stress and Solve Problems - Register to Attend
    • Date: Tuesday, December 10, 2024
    • Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

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.
