February 15 - Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's): Development and Adult Impacts
The CDC reports: “Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood. ACEs can include violence, abuse, and growing up in a family with mental health or substance use problems. Toxic stress from ACEs can change brain development and affect how the body responds to stress. ACEs are linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance misuse in adulthood.” 1
This training will provide a comprehensive look at how ACEs impact neuro and emotional development and how that plays into the larger role of overall health.

March 20 - Sorting and Decision Making: Two Key Skills for Effective Decluttering
People who hoard lack several skills that are necessary to declutter their living environments effectively. Two of the most important are sorting their possessions and making decisions quickly regarding what to do with them. Using experiential exercises, the presenter will guide and invite a deeper understanding and appreciation of these skills. More specifically, participants will practice the skills with the items that they assemble themselves from their living environment, or from their purses, wallets, backpacks, or desk drawer. The workshop leader does NOT expect participants to discard items but to learn from the inside out these sorting and decision-making skills using their own possessions.
