This seminar will focus on the importance of self-care and how it applies to helping individuals let go of stress. Kevin Cloninger, PhD, PCC, will explore the neuroscience, philosophy, and evolutionary history of the mind-body relationship and delve into the nature and science of thought and the psychophysiology of stress. In conjunction, he will provide tools that can help individuals work on letting go of stress in their professional and personal lives, including physical exercises, relaxation techniques, and reflective exercises.
There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smiting that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative. Accomplishing personal goals improves our sense of purpose, self-efficacy, and satisfaction with life. In this seminar, you will learn to formulate, set, and take action on your goals using the SMART method and concepts from Anthropedia’s Know Yourself workshops. Participants will also practice setting a SMART objective during the seminar.

This workshop will explore themes related to effective communication between parents and their children. Kevin Cloninger will discuss why talking with a child or teen can be so difficult, due to a host of different developmental factors. For example, we will look at how brain development in childhood and adolescence influences listening, speech, and perception, and how parents can take this into account in order to communicate effectively with their children. Afterwards, we will discuss some practical strategies to help improve empathy and communication. Coffee, tea, and water will be provided. $25 for members and non-members. Register through our class schedule on the PALM app. Non-members may call 314-801-8898 option 2 to sign up. Proceeds from the workshop will go to support Anthropedia’s work in the community.
