Now More than Ever… 

There are lots of challenges in the world today but over and over again we are seeing how people are rising to the occasion—helping each other, sharing, working for the good of all and simply spending more quality time with their families. That’s the strange gift in challenging times, that in times of great need our true character can really shine. 

We hear the word “crises” a lot these days, but what does it really mean?  The word derives from the Greek language, where it means “to separate, to sift, to sort” or otherwise keep what is essential. Indeed, these times are challenging us, calling us to now focus on our humanity—to be more human than ever, to cast off the non-essential. 

We have had so many emails and calls requesting our advice and assistance. And as during so many other challenging times in our lives, the answers often appear right in front of us.  In our case, what we have to give, to help with, is our life’s work of supporting the health and wellness of schools, families and health professionals. We have so many tips and tools to share from over 40 years of doing this work, so sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page to receive those free resources and stay in touch. 

All of our courses qualify for professional development hours and graduate credit and we have installment billing and other ways to help make things affordable. Just click on View Course for more information or go to our Calendar Page for a complete listing of all available courses. And please, contact us  at if you have any questions or special needs.)

For together we can do great things!
