EWC Workshop Draws Large Crowd
November 6, 2002
(Torrington, WY November 6, 2002) Eastern Wyoming College hosted the program Creating a Personal Balance by Dr. Jean Beyer, on Wednesday, October 30, 2002. Over one hundred persons from a wide variety of backgrounds and professional agencies attended the luncheon program.
We were extremely pleased with the tremendous response we received for this program and the wide range of campus and community representation, stated Anne Gardetto, EWC program coordinator. Given Dr. Beyers wide range of expertise, she has an uncanny ability to relate program objectives to every walk of life.
Dr. Beyer shared strategies to help every day be more balanced and self-fulfilled. Among the many subjects addressed, Dr. Beyer spoke to the need for human resilience and vitality as well as the importance of remaining committed to being a student of life. Presenter Beyer also addressed those feelings that affect a healthy balance and a sense of connectedness, and elements that keep us from growing. She incorporated in her presentation, Maslows Hierarchy of Needs Theory, defense mechanisms that block coping ability, and how anxiety, isolation, and anger affect the health of body, mind, and spirit.
Evaluations from the over one hundred persons in attendance overwhelmingly indicated a strong desire for more programs focusing on personal growth and human development issues, stated Gardetto.
