In this training participants will learn about Internal Family Systems and the importance of “parts” work. We will discuss the different “parts” of ourselves, how they can show up in our relationships, our workplace, our daily lives, and ways to have our “parts” working together and accepting one another in order to live with confidence, guided by curiosity and compassion.

April 5, 1:30 to 3 p.m.
Self-care sounds like a good idea, but obstacles like time, money, and having the focus on one’s self in a busy world often means that self-care falls by the wayside. In this presentation, participants will learn about the foundations of self-care, including how to select self-care activities based on needs and availability of time. The group and the facilitator will generate ideas for self-care so that participants can leave the presentation with self-care ideas that they choose to use. This presentation also touches on the limits of self-care.

“Giving and Receiving Effective Feedback” presented by Sarah Porter, PhD, a licensed psychologist and founder of a workplace training and consulting practice on Wednesday, March 20th at 11:00am. This presentation will focus on best practices for not only successfully communicating praise and constructive criticism at work but also responding well during these tricky conversations. Many of us have a love-hate relationship with feedback. As the giver, you want to strike a good balance between recognizing strengths and weaknesses, yet you sometimes struggle to get it right. As the recipient, you want to know how you’re doing but don’t always walk away feeling fully seen or clear on your next steps. Fortunately, there are proven strategies you can use to get the most out of your next feedback session. In this training, you will learn best practices for not only successfully communicating praise and constructive criticism but also responding well during these tricky conversations.
