Learn techniques to maintain your cool and manage difficult encounters in Fe University’s Civil Discourse Series, presented by Jane Banning, on Zoom at 10:00 am for 4 Wednesdays starting November 8th!

The Fe University course is offered in 4 sessions, with the option to attend all or mix-and-match.  Sessions One and Two on November 8th and 15th will address Civil Discourse.  These classes delve into understanding how our brains react when our perceived reality is challenged, offering strategies for staying calm, asking great questions, and learning how to manage a variety of demanding situations. Practice what you’ve learned in the second session through engaging role-play scenarios.  Self-Regulation is the topic of Session Three on November 22th.  Maybe stress overwhelms you in certain contexts or situations, sending your pulse pounding and fogging your brain.  This class will look at strategies to manage and regulate stress responses.  Finally, November 29th will be devoted to Motivational Interviewing, a style of communication that helps people articulate and commit to changes based on their own interests and values.

The fee for Civil Discourse Series is $25 for all four classes; $10 each individual session; or $15 for the two Civil Discourse sessions.  Register online or by mail — more information at feuniversity.org!
