Empowered ME!  Wednesday, May 20, 2015  12 noon - 1:00 p.m., University Hospital NT 6614

Discover how to re-claim your own power and respond in ways that make a positive difference. Often when we feel trapped or stuck in a negative cycle it is because we are locked into a frame of mind which highlights only what is outside of our control.  Just as it is naturally human to be imperfect, it is naturally human to have trigger points that "get on our last nerve" and set the stage for us to react in ways that perpetuate the very cycle we wish to break. Join this seminar where we will discuss tools and tactics to create an empowered perspective, identify realistic expectations and goals, and begin to understand how you can create your own happiness and success.
