  • Practicing Mindfulness to Support Wellness – Wednesday July 6: 11:00-11:45
  • A very important aspect of overall wellness is having regular time and attention devoted to managing stress. Mindfulness techniques are a proven method for decreasing stress levels and improving overall wellness. In this interactive webinar, participants will be led through three different mindfulness exercises and learn how practicing mindfulness can benefit both physical and mental health.

  • Understanding Trauma and Building Resiliency  Wednesday, August 3: 11:00-11:45
  • In the last several years we have experienced a variety of particularly stressful situations. As a result, many people have experienced their own trauma reactions as well as been impacted by community/global trauma that  we have heard and learned about. In addition, many have experienced secondary trauma when working with others. This session will assist you in recognizing trauma reactions, understanding the impact, and strategies to mitigate the toll trauma can take by building resiliency.

  • Promoting Positive Interactions in the Workplace  Wednesday, September 7: 11:00-11:45
  • During times of increased stress, we can experience tension and conflict in our interactions with others. When our patience is weakened due to stress, we are more easily frustrated, and our choice of words/body language may not be the best. This session focuses on increasing our understanding of stress, recognizing how we can be more positive in the workplace, and provides tips on increasing our communication skills.
