Event description

Description

This workshop will provide 4 CE hours for social workers approved by NYS, (provider #0720)

The holidays can be a demanding, stress-filled and an emotionally-challenging time for many people. It is the season of giving and generosity, but also pressure to produce perfect dinners and parties and presents - a prescription that can leave a person more overwhelmed than overjoyed. Many people get so caught up in the momentum that they lose the moment. Economic tensions can add to existing worries and for those facing grief and loss the emphasis on celebration and happiness can heighten emptiness and pain. This is an ideal time to learn skills and understand concepts of Positive Psychology that can provide clients with a reliable and rewarding frame through which to view and respond to social demands, to rethink what it means to "gift" self and others, and learn science-driven approaches to strengthening psychological resilience for navigating stressful situations. This workshop will provide improvisation-based techniques and explorations for creating experiences that make enduring, positive memories, and to generate an emotional space that is healing and supportive for getting through the difficult emotional times.

Objectives:

Learn principles of Positive Psychology that promote stress-resilience;

Learn improvisation techniques that promote a skill set for navigating stress without being derailed by it;

Identify specific Positive Psychology practices that clients can apply in daily life;

Experience creative, collaborative processes that boost the reward chemistry of the brain;

Learn techniques for "gifting" self and others that can strengthen client's resilience to stress.
