When crisis strikes, what emerges in us and those around us? Do we yearn for connection? Solitude? What brings us comfort? What causes disconnection? In this class, we will explore several common human reactions to crisis, both in groups and in individuals. We will also think about our own existential, physical, and emotional needs when we find ourselves in crisis.

Audience: Front line caregivers Content: Personal Growth Many front line caregivers in health care describe their jobs as "callings" or "vocations", or say that what they do is "more than a job". This class explores the unique challenges and opportunities of relating to one's work in this way. How do we continue relate to our work over years and decades? What happens when our "Calling" disappoints us or lets us down? How do we stay connected to our sense of purpose?
