Well-being is about having the inner resources to meet stress while being in the midst of it. Our virtual educational Know Yourself Workshops are designed to help individuals increase their resilience to stress and improve their overall well-being and awareness. In these workshops, participants are introduced to the groundbreaking Know Yourself DVD curriculum, which offers tools, concepts, and self-reflection exercises to help foster calmness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mind-body health.
It turns out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Not only that, but it’s good for your brain. Remember those piano lessons you took as a kid? Memorizing verb conjugations in Spanish? Volunteering at a food pantry? Believe it or not, revisiting some of those long-lost interests or finding similar ones later in life can actually rewire your brain to become healthier and prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Is your child having problems with focus, attention, stress, anxiety, or school performance? PALM Health has a neurofeedback package specially designed to help children and families address these symptoms. Neurofeedback, or “brain training,” is a learning therapy that measures brainwaves, then provides performance-based feedback to improve various brain functions such as attention. The virtual package includes your choice of all-virtual sessions or a combination of in-person and virtual sessions, as well as two months of remote neurofeedback software and equipment rental.
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.
