Job, Transition and Family Change: Managing Stress at Work and Home

Our panel is returning.....because you asked.

The program will focus on being proactive in approaching very real issues in your job, your finances and your personal relationships. It is intended to help in planning and handling the stress related to those in transition and its impact on personal relationships.

One thing is virtually certain - - change will happen.  How prepared are you? Who is on your team?
