SEEING COMEDY IN LIFE TO AVOID ANXIETY, DEPRESSION AND ANGER:

Getting a comedic view of your situation gives you spiritual distance,” Joseph Campbell. This class explores the idea that negative emotions are not the result of external circumstances, but how we choose to perceive a situation. Everyone has a sense of humor; it may be either very acute or need work. Learn about the irrational thoughts we all engage that make us miserable. Instructor Joe Garant, LPC, is a licensed counselor. He is currently the Rehabilitation Coordinator and Employee Assistance Counselor at NEMROC in Alpena. Joe also works part-time at Mid-Michigan Healthcare as a mental health therapist! Joe has personally used tools offered in this class to overcome serious and persistent anxiety. He will present a PowerPoint that is both informative and entertaining.

DATE: Wednesday, April 24      TIME: 5:30-7:30 pm                  FEE: $15
