Caregiving: Using your Strengths to Turn Challenges into Successes: 

Are you a caregiver to a loved one, such as a spouse, parent, or adult child? If so, NNORC has a unique workshop you will want to attend. Sara Powers, Ph.D., a gerontologist at the College of Saint Rose, will be leading a workshop examining positive aspects of caregiving and how to turn caregiving challenges into successes using a strengths-based approach. The workshop is designed to help caregivers engage in positive reappraisal of the emotional side of caregiving, increase confidence in their capabilities, and give caregivers a sense of appreciation for all that they do and give of themselves. Attendees will receive handouts to take home including helpful resources and activities to help stay positive. As this is a highly participatory workshop, space will be limited. Light refreshments will be served.
