Faculty: Carmen Caraballo, MSW (Bio Below)
How we relate to both our inner and outer world matters. How we engage in our relationships is most often strongly determined by our upbringing, familial connections, culture, and society. We are greatly impacted by our relationships with people, places, things, and situations. In turn, we ourselves also have a significant impact in all the ways that we intersect with the multifaceted aspects and stressors of daily life.
This is not a workshop about romantic relationships. However, it is about learning to be more gentle with ourselves in a world that can be harsh and depleting of our wellness reserves. This “building resiliency” workshop is about how we manage and cultivate healthier relationships with ourselves and others and various concepts such as time, social media, work, self-care, passions
and connections with our communities and the larger society.
Join us for this 2 part - 2-hour workshop where we will share and learn ideas and strategies that will support us in developing and strengthening our resiliency and self-care skills.
