Life is full of changes. There are many types of losses that can cause us to grieve or to feel a sense of sadness or longing for what once was. Grief is not just our reaction to the death of a loved one - it may be our response to the loss of a job or friend, a marriage ending, a move, adult children leaving home or other life transitions. While there is no "wrong" way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope that can be helpful when undergoing such stress and transition. With awareness and support, we can accept our new circumstances, find new meaning and move on. In this discussion-based workshop you will learn: • Common myths and facts about grief • How to identify the physical and emotional symptoms of grief • The difference between grief and depression and when professional help is needed • To identify and choose healthy coping

We all have difficult or challenging times in our lives – this is normal and to be expected. But sometimes these external factors intrude on our ability to perform our jobs to the best of our ability. When an employee’s performance begins to erode in some way, often supervisors will try to ‘help’ the employee by looking the other way or not giving any consequences. Sometimes this helps the employee – and sometimes it perpetuates the problem. How do we know what the best course of action is? This seminar will discuss how to recognize concerning behavior and how to help any employee get back on track.
Learn how stress plays a part in your health status; contributes to inflammation and weight gain. Hormones released during constant stress could be behind your weight gain or prevent you from losing weight. Cortisol is one hormone that has many jobs including maintaining blood pressure and carbohydrate metabolism. During times of stress cortisol stays elevated causing an impact on weight gain. Stress, inflammation and diet play together and could be helping us hold on to that unwanted weight.

Even with recent successes in social justice and popular culture, some gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and gender non-conforming employees still face bias, homophobia and discrimination in the workplace. The resulting fear and stress not only affect work performance but overall morale in environments that are not accepting or inclusive in varying degrees. In this workshop we will clarify sexual orientation and gender identity to better prepare all participants to collectively foster an inclusive working environment for all LGBT and gender non-conforming employees.
