Audience: All caregivers Content: Personal Growth Spirituality and religion can offer protective factors that help individuals resiliently bounce back from life's difficulties. Spiritual pain however can be and often is a symptom of physical and psychological pain. Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, shame, and depression are common to those suffering from real or perceived loss. This can occur when a person's beliefs/worldview are in conflict with what they are going through. Research suggests people with a more realistic worldview/belief system who take into account both beauty and suffering may lead lives that are more meaningful and peaceful. This course will survey research and practices that can help you navigate beliefs and ideas that may be preventing you from experiencing the richness of the spiritual self and life as a whole.

Audience: Front line caregivers Content: Personal Growth One of my surprise learnings early in ministry was that the # 1 reason why missionaries quit is that they can't get along w/ other missionaries. Say what? Throughout my career I've observed that how we manage conflict is one of the greatest factors in determining our job satisfaction. The purpose then of this session is to learn some new perspectives on conflict: why it exists, how to stay grounded and curious when experiencing conflict, and how to find positive outcomes.

Audience: All Employees Content: Personal Growth What emotion are you feeling right now? We frequently are not fully aware of our emotions and how they are affecting us at any given time. Paying attention to our feelings and the place where our cognition and emotion meet can facilitate increased capacity for empathy, reasoning, stress management, communication, and our ability to navigate a wide variety of social situations and conflicts, including leading to a deeper understanding of what may be bothering us. In this class, we will explore emotional awareness and how it can be a deep source of resiliency and self-awareness, and how it can flow out to support others.

Audience: All care-givers Content: Personal Growth All caregivers carry their own wounds. When those wounds find adequate healing, they transform from being constraints to our compassion toward others and vocational vitality, to deep gifts for connection and shared humanity. We can become "wounded healers." The path to healing our wounds begins with growing in self-compassion. This class utilizes the Internal Family Systems model as a tool for this growth.
Audience: Employees that interface with patients, families, and other staff. Content: Personal Growth Self-awareness is key to effectively working with others. Self-awareness also opens up space within as it reduces stress and anxiety. The space helps us to be more creative, imaginative, and feel more alive. The Enneagram is a centuries old tool that helps us understand our personality type, helps us understand why and when we are stressed, and gives us clues in how to learn and grow.

Audience: All care-givers Content: Personal Growth A leading cause of stress and burnout is not overworking; rather, it's getting stuck in the problems of other people. Central to Bowen's family systems theory is the concept of differentiation, or the ability of a person to maintain a strong sense of "self" within a system (i.e., family, organization, etc.). A well-differentiated person is able to resist the lure of emotional triangles, which causes systems to mature by influencing others to take responsibility for themselves. In this class, you will have opportunity to develop skills and awareness to be more resilient as a caregiver and leader in your context.

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?
