Strengthening Relationships Presentation Series
Join us monthly on zoom as speakers share their professional expertise on helping people strengthen their relationships, with a range of topics and strategies for intimate relationships, friendships, families, and coworkers. April's presentation is "How does 1+1=3 in thriving relationships?" presented by Lydia Valdés, MAT, MS, LPC on Tuesday 4/19 at 12 p.m.
In a fast paced world, it can be difficult to bring ourselves into the moment and slow down. Mindfulness practices are simple yet powerful techniques to increase our connection to our immediate experience. These practices have very practical benefits in our lives such as improved concentration, increased energy, and better overall mood. EAP is offering guided mindfulness practices via the Zoom platform each Tuesday from 5pm-5:15pm and each Thursday from 12pm-12:15pm. Join us as we guide and instruct in mindful exercises that will help you feel more fully aware and present in the moments of everyday life.
"My Gran’ma used to say...": Exploring our Cultural Healing Traditions
The stressful events of 2020 and 2021 have undoubtedly taken a toll on our well-being. The drag of the “pandemic effect” prolonged isolation, unstable labor market, mass protests for racial justice, and the great resignation, to name a few, have led to high rates of burnout, anxiety and depression. While we have all experienced these disrupters at the same time, we didn’t all experience it in the same way. With that, the level of support needed varies. We hope that this is the first of many conversations that begin to normalize mental health, making it part of our day-to-day discussions.
We are proud to provide brief counseling and consultation services, crisis intervention, assessment and referral, educational and training programs, and supervisory consultation. Para asistencia en español, haga clic aquí.
