Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Positive Matters, Accentuate Consulting, LLC and SaraOliveri Coaching and Consulting, three boutique firms that specialize in helping organizations increase their employees’ performance and improve organizational well-being, will be featured at the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA) Conference on October 19th, 2012 in Baltimore, MD. The workshop is titled: “Bouncing Back: New Techniques in Positive Psychology to Build Resilience.”
EAPA's Annual World EAP Conference is the most intensive and comprehensive learning and networking opportunity in the world for employee assistance professionals. Whether one is new to the EA profession or a seasoned veteran, the World EAP Conference is the single best investment one can make in your professional growth and success. It is possible to earn PDHs, share experiences with EA colleagues from around the globe, discover the vast treasures of the EAPA Marketplace, investigate a new location and prepare to explore the new era of employee assistance.
Three experts in positive psychology will discuss the latest techniques including how to communicate for more resilient relationships, how to cease unhelpful worrying once and for all, and how to adopt a more resilient mindset.
“Stress-related illnesses are the number one reason for absenteeism in the workplace, so resilience has become a hot topic for organizations trying to reduce employee stress. By teaching employees how to build resilience, they improve their own psychological ability to combat stress. We’re excited about the current developments in positive psychology and the opportunity to help companies improve performance and their bottom line,” says Louisa Jewell, MAPP, president of Positive Matters..”
