What does resilience really mean and why is resilience training so vital? Join our Coaching Community of Practice (CoP) on March 3rd when Glenn Schiraldi, PhD presents information on the promise and potential of resilience training. Glenn’s extensive research and experience in resilience includes lessons from survivor interviews, how resilience can be grown, and how we can optimize the brain “hardware” in preparation for resilience skills. The program will include an understanding of PTSD and dissociation and a demonstration of “software” or skills to manage strong, distressing emotions and to increase happiness.

New Policy for people who are “no-shows”
Since we have terrific programs scheduled for this year, we want to provide an opportunity for as many attendees as possible. To enable us to fill openings please email me at least before 10 a.m. the day of the meeting, Tuesday, if you will not be able to attend so I can contact those who email that day to be on the waiting list. From now on those who are 'no-shows' will be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings. If you contact me after 10 a.m. I may still be able to fill your opening although it doesn't provide much notice for those on the waiting list.
Cancellation policy: If session is cancelled Peggy Linden will send out an email announcement. If schools or libraries are closed this meeting will be cancelled also.
