Affirm Yourself for Life's Challenges
Have you, a friend, a colleague or family member ever dealt with difficult challenges in your life or work? Janet's presentation uses personal stories, affirming statements and group discussion to find ways to stay positive and thrive in the midst of these difficulties. Janet reveals real life examples of how you can lift yourself up as well as help lift up others -- making your life more meaningful and balanced. You will also learn how to personalize these principles to your specific challenges and unique opportunities.

Your Positive Psychology Advantage
Depression and poor emotional health have been shown to negatively impact a person's wellbeing. Thinking patterns, including pessimism, inflexibility, and mindless reactivity are risk factors for these problems. However, research in positive psychology demonstrates that healthier thinking styles can be learned that foster creativity, engagement and resilience. This presentation uses science, personal stories and practical take-home exercises to establish an awareness of the power of positive emotional health.
