Don't Just Let Them Vent .. Help Them Reinvent!
How to move the survivors of significant loss -- formerly highly functioning but now overwhelmed, anxious or depressed -- from paralysis to action and hope.
While death is obvious loss, losses arising from downsizing, career dissatisfaction and disability to divorce, empty nest and lifeless retirement are often overlooked as significant loss involving grieving. Venting the mad, sad and bad is crucial but stagnating unless combined with a program to Reinvent NOW.
What makes my model work for the overwhelmed who have thought the agonizing WHAT NEXT QUESTION to death? It is the focus on strengths rather than problems and imagery and humor rather than logic. My playshops,are skill rich, interactive and invigorating yet benefit all levels of expertise. I believe if you can laugh you can learn and am dedicated to teaching user friendly strategies that work.If you're new to my blog you can check out my style in the other entries. Feel free to email me for participant feedback.
In the process of reinventing myself yet again with taking my playshops on the road, I am excited to be sharing the above with social workers at the Camden County Health Services Center, BlackwoodNew Jersey on 11/17.
