The Power of Positivity

Maslow Was Definitely on to Something!

April 28, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET

Workshop Description

This interactive workshop combines Maslow’s Heirarchy of Need with Dr. Joann Cannon’s 15 Risk Factors for High Level Wellness in a background of popular music lyrics to help participants de-stress and focus their energy on living well. Activities and sing-along fun enhance this important learning experience.

In this workshop:

• Participants will learn how to make a “Yes I Can Plan” which will help then ensure that their basic
needs are met.
• Participants will understand the importance of having a family budget, getting regular check-ups, and
• coping with the stress in their lives so that their safety needs are met.
• Participants will practice strategies such as performing random acts of kindness which will help them
meet their social needs.
• Participants will begin to develop esteem-building habits.
• Participants will understand that practicing self-expression and embracing their uniqueness are
important steps to achieving personal fulfillment.
