New Groups for Spring of 2012:
Raising Resilient Kids (And Parents!)
6 Week Workshop
Beginning in February 29 – Wednesdays at 9:30 AM (more to be added with demand)
Resilience has been found to be the key characteristic which, when present in people, can thwart susceptibility to the #1 most frequently diagnosed mental disorder in the United States, depression. While some people are inherently more able to bounce back from adversity, this trait can be taught and research indicates that one is never too young or too old to become more resilient! Research shows that resilient kids tend to be happier and that happier teens go on to earn higher incomes and suffer fewer illnesses as they become adults, all other factor is being equal.
Share this group session with other parents in the community to learn new skills, brainstorm solutions and celebrate successes! Please contact Jean for price and availability: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Happiness Project
Beginning March 1 – Thursdays at 2:30 PM (More to be added with demand)
Recently, Men’s Health Magazine rated St. Petersburg Florida as the saddest city in the United States and Tampa wasn’t far behind. Why is this? Can it be changed? What exactly is happiness? How do we increase it in our own lives?
This is a 12 week group which will have its members creating their own individual happiness projects. It will be based on the New York Times best seller, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. Together, we will explore the latest research and techniques that have been shown to contribute to happiness and well-being. Though it may seem self-serving to explore ways of creating greater happiness in ourselves, research shows that one happier person effects the emotional climate for every other person with whom s/he interfaces. Happier people also tend to be more cooperative, less self centered, volunteer more hours to help others and tend to take on more leadership roles. To others, they appear; more friendly, open, self-confident, assertive and even more physically attractive than do less happy people.
By taking the time to learn how to create a happier version of yourself, who knows? You may be helping to create a happier family, neighborhood, city, county and not to be too corny… World!
