Event description

Description

When it comes time to saying goodbye, we can often be at a loss for words. Creating a healthy and supportive transition can feel difficult, but with the right information and time for reflection, volunteers can feel more comfortable navigating these key moments. "Saying Goodbye: Creating Successful Transitions" examines the complex factors that contribute to an individual’s reactions to endings. This interactive workshop explores the various means of communicating feelings surrounding endings and change, and provides volunteers with best practices to support healthy transitions/endings. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and engage in concrete ending activities, along with a personalized Q&A session, should time allow.

This workshop will be facilitated by Michele Lansing, MA, MS Ed., LCSW. Michele is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and industry leader with ten years experience as an educator and mental health expert. Prior to moving to Chicago, she taught middle and high school in Brooklyn, NY – focusing on mathematics, science, and sex education.Through her work as a public school teacher, Michele witnessed how many children are tied down by life’s stressors and are unable to devote themselves to their education. From these experiences, she decided to make the transition into social work. Michele currently works for the Juvenile Protective Association (JPA) as a staff therapist and Director of Connect, providing individual and couples therapy to parents, and providing expert consultation and training to teachers and administrators. She has also been instrumental in the development and implementation of multiple JPA programs (Connect, Connect2Kinder, and Test Anxiety Program), which seek to support students, their families, and teachers in cultivating stronger and healthier relationships.
