as we celebrate Child Life Month

"The World is Full of Cactus, but We Don’t Have to Sit on It"

Life doesn’t always go the way we want it to. Whether it is an encounter with a stressful situation, a difficult day or an unwanted change, the cactus in our lives can take a toll. Got cactus? Attend this program to learn how to dust yourself off and maintain a positive outlook – whatever life brings your way.

Discussion will include:

• How to prevent escalation of difficult situations.

• How to respond more confidently in conflict situations.

• Self-assess behaviors you could use to reduce the number of  difficult encounters.

• The secret to loving your job… and your life (really).

• Using empathy and tact, even when under pressure.

Speaker:  Susan Keane Baker MHA is the author of five books, including Split-Second Kindness: Making a Difference When Time is Limited.  Susan has served as vice president of hospitals in New York and Connecticut and as a member of the Board of Examiners for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.
