“Anger Management – A Moment to Exhale!” is the topic for the September LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV. The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave.
The September workshop will be presented by Patricia Patton, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, marriage and family counselor, staff member with Emerge from Anger, and co-author of numerous books and workbooks on anger management. The workshop will offer 10 quick tips to manage daily frustration and avoid angry outbursts, seven meditative techniques and creative activities to de-stress, five practical ways to cope with family conflict and challenging parenting situations, and essential steps to replace resentment and grudges with genuine forgiveness.
Women who arrive by the 10 a.m. workshop start time are entered in a drawing for a free gift certificate. Free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register at least one week in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, set budgets and file taxes, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Habitat for Humanity Returning Women Veterans and Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services. Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
