Certificates of attendance documenting hours will be provided after the webinar via email. 

Webinars are $10 per person, and payment is accepted by credit card or PayPal only. The registration form allows participants to sign up for one or more webinars in one easy form. Participants will receive an automatic confirmation upon registering and then a link to sign in to the Zoom webinar approximately 24 hours prior to each session. Registration is for one person only, and we respectfully request that the link is not shared with anyone. 

We hope you’ll join us for these exciting virtual training sessions!


Upcoming Webinars

Self-Care in Crisis & Beyond

April 7, 10 am – 12 pm
Self-care is imperative. In order to show up for others (i.e., spouse, family, co-workers), we must show up for ourselves – on a daily basis! Join us for this interactive webinar to explore what self-care truly looks like. Participants will learn Positive Psychology concepts; learn the importance of attitude in relation to wellness; learn techniques for managing stress, especially in a time of crisis; and identify ways to incorporate daily self-care practices for our “new normal.”

April 9, 1 – 2:30 pm
QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling or neighbor.

Facilitation Skills

April 16, 1 – 3 pm 
Facilitation is often referred to as the new cornerstone of management philosophy. With its focus on fairness and creating an easy decision making process. Creating a comfortable environment through better facilitation will give your participants a better understanding of what a good facilitator can do to improve any meeting or gathering. The Facilitation Skills webinar can help any organization make better decisions. This webinar will give participants an understanding of what facilitation is all about, as well as some tools that they can use to facilitate small meetings. A strong understanding of how a facilitator can command a room and dictate the pace of a meeting will have your participants on the road to becoming great facilitators themselves.
