Care giving can be demanding and all consuming. When we become depleted and burned out our effectiveness suffers.

You will learn how to listen to your client’s needs, gain clarity about your own boundaries, and how to handle frustrations that arise, bringing more compassion and peace to your care giving practice. This course is rooted in the deep communication work of Marshal Rosenberg, PhD. Required: $3 materials fee payable to the instructor at the beginning of the course.

When starting a business many people register with the Secretary of State’s office, buy a laptop and start providing services. However, in order to protect yourself and your family, the steps involved in starting a business, especially if home-based, may be more complex. It may require getting a business license, paying an occupational privilege tax, having special insurance, and having contracts with your landlord or lender renegotiated. In addition, if you meet with clients at your house, or store sensitive information, you may be opening yourself up to more liability than you originally thought. Come learn about the legal and tax issues that may arise when you open your new business from professionals who work with small businesses every day.

Have you or a member of your family sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI)? Struggles with memory issues, job stamina, light and sound sensitivity, low mental energy, suffering or disappearing relationships, and short term memory problems are sometimes related to MTBI. Since you look just fine, people (and some doctors) may think you are faking your symptoms. There are lifestyle strategies and health care choices to assist you in your recovery and life management needs. This course provides you with a more clear understanding about MTBI and the numerous therapeutic and strategic options available. This course is meant for adult MTBI sufferers and their family members. A handout outlining the course, modeling the building of a successful support system, and a referral list for effective therapists on the Front Range is included in the course. (Minimum course size is 6 and 20 maximum.) Instructor: Gail L. Denton Gail L. Denton, PhD, is the author of the book “Brainlash: Maximize Your Recovery from Mild Brain Injury”, and has been a Life Coach, consultant and lecturer to the MTBI community for the past twenty years. She is an avid outdoorswoman, and enjoys a wide variety of interests. Prior to writing and lecturing, she maintained private practice in psychotherapy.

Many of us try diet after diet, only to end up gaining back those lost pounds while adding a few more! In fact, statistics show that 98% of people who lose weight gain it back—often within one year. Yikes! Diets often leave us feeling deprived and we eventually gravitate back to the foods we’re comfortable eating. Many of us are exercising more and eating less, and we still can’t seem to lose the weight we’d like to. We will explore diet myths and learn an approach to eating that will help us reach and maintain our ideal weight, increase energy, boost metabolic power, decrease cortisol and other stress hormones that lead to weight gain. You’ll leave this class with practical tools you can put into place along with samples and recipes for healthy treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth, stabilize blood sugar levels, and increase energy!

Have you ever wished you could better understand what your dog is feeling and communicating through body language? Wouldn’t it be nice to be skilled at reading an encounter between your dog and another and know whether or not it is friendly? Is one dog stressed, scared, appeasing, defensive, bullying, offensive, or socially challenged? What do you do if the interaction is dicey? How does your presence affect the encounter? Did you also know that dogs are reading your body language? What do they think you are “saying” and how can you communicate your true intent? In this class I use numerous slides and videos to instruct. We will also cover barking – the meaning of different barks and what to do if it becomes a problem. I will also share with you the science behind dogs and learning. Research has come a long way in understanding this important topic, and it is an essential training component for those raising a dog.

Thought Field Therapy is a Chinese Acupuncture Meridian Therapy whereby an algorithm or sequence of acupuncture points is tapped with the fingers to stimulate a flow of trapped or stored energy. While the person is tapping they are thinking of the problem at hand in order to release the negative energy held around those thoughts. In this course we will practice some of the tapping sequences to relieve things such as anxiety, fear, panic, phobias, and pain in our animals. The same tapping sequences work for humans as well. We will tap the dogs but can also use our own bodies to tap on as we are energetically connected to our pets and thereby clearing both of us at the same time of negative emotions which can give rise to physical and behavioral problems in our pets. This will be another powerful tool that you can use on your dogs to help with negative behaviors. Please bring your well behaved dog to class. (Minimum course size is 4 and maximum is 10.)
