"The World is Full of Cactus, but We Don't Have to Sit on It"

Speaker: Susan Keane Baker MHA  


Life doesn't always go the way we want it to. Whether it is an encounter with a stressful situation, a difficult day or an unwanted change, the cactus in our lives can take a toll. Got cactus? Attend this program to learn how to dust yourself off and maintain a positive outlook - whatever life brings your way.


Discussion will include:

* How to prevent escalation of difficult situations.

* How to respond more confidently in conflict situations.

* Self-assess behaviors you could use to reduce the number of  difficult encounters.
