Family Workshops

Every month, Human Resources brings in local experts to present a variety of family-friendly workshops topics for parents and individuals caring for family members. Workshops are open to all family types, but each topic focuses on a specific group.

Family workshops are open to faculty, staff, students and spouses. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch to eat during the presentation. Time for asking questions and networking with others is offered as part of the workshop. Registration is required for each workshop and is available up to the day prior to the workshop. Registration for all workshops is available online (log in and select ‘Wellness Events’).

End of Life Care
Noon-1 p.m. Stewart Center, Room 218C.

End of life conversations can be very difficult and uncomfortable, and often times you may not know where to start. Families often wait until the last minute to have these conversations … or never have them. This can lead to very traumatic and stressful decision making for a loved one, without knowing what their wishes are. The goal of this workshop is to help you build confidence in beginning or continuing conversations about end of life wishes, whether about your own wishes or with a loved one you are helping care for.
