November EAP Webinar: Holiday Survival Guide

We all have special feelings about the holidays. For many, it’s a wonderful time for celebration, family gatherings and joyful memories. For others, it’s a time of sadness and, possibly, a feeling of being overwhelmed. In this seminar, participants examine sources of holiday stress and learn strategies for coping and managing their emotions, time, relationships and finances. Participants will also share ideas for organizing holiday tasks, managing holiday demands and look at the role of holiday traditions.
