(Torrington, WY October 21, 2002) A free workshop entitled Creating a Personal Balance, will be presented from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 30 in Rooms 131-132, at Eastern Wyoming College. Jean Beyer, PhD., M.S., R.N., who holds a masters degree in guidance and counseling from UNO and a doctorate in community and human resources from UNL, will be the presenter.

The workshop will identify five commonly used defense mechanisms that block coping ability; review Maslow?s Hierarchy of Needs Theory; discuss how anxiety, isolation and anger affect the health of body, mind, and spirit, including what breaks and heals a heart; review five basic human relations skills; explore a strategy for personal reflection, mediation and serenity; and discussion of the impact that adaptive resilience and vitality have on success.
