Join the Professional Development Committee on Wednesday, October 5th for a Lunch and Learn event focused on "Coping with Stress in the Workplace". We will hear from two amazing counselors, Nicole Goldin and Megan Loos with CORE.
Nicole and Megan will focus this session on how when your job is stressful, it can feel like it's taking over your life. However, it is truly possible to regain control with awareness, effective coping skills, and the right workplace tools. During the past few years we've heard all about "work-life balance," but what does that really mean? The fact is that a healthy balance looks different for each one of us. Come explore and understand the inner workings of your occupational habits in this chat with licensed therapists. CORE therapists work with individuals and families in the St. Bernard Parish community to help them achieve a better quality of life by sorting through unnecessary stress and treating related conditions such as anxiety and depression.
