Basic self-defense techniques will be demonstrated with opportunity for practice.

Even if you’ve taken this class before, it is always to your benefit to refresh or practice your self-defense skills. Class instructor Officer Reed has updated the class curriculum to include the use of pressure points as a self-defense technique.

EWC Highlights Upcoming Community Education American Sign Language class

American Sign Language (ASL) is a natural language that serves as the predominant sign language of deaf communities in the United States and most of Anglophone Canada.

EWC student, Jaxon Heyrend, is excited about sharing his knowledge of American Sign Language. He has planned some creative and innovative activities to make learning this language fun for everyone.

In this four week class Jaxson will cover alphabet, numbers, basic phrases, basic nouns and some verbs, as well as information about the “deaf culture”.

Parents and grandparents, sign language is a great way for you to communicate with your little one because babies’ understanding of language and motor skills develop much faster than their ability to speak. Learning signs such a drink, food, hot, and more may lead to less frustration and tears.

This workshop is for persons who are divorced or thinking of divorce. Whether you are recently divorced or have been divorced for years, this is an event you want to consider. The focus of this workshop will be to educate and inform in a supportive and informal setting. This is not a lecture program, it will be participative.  Individuals will be encouraged to discuss and explore materials and meet others with similar experiences.  Topics to be explored:  the 10 leading causes of divorce; what to consider before either you remarry or enter another relationship; communication—how good is your communication, what are potential roadblocks to good communication; the impact of divorce on children and family members; how to avoid bringing the GHOSTS from the past into a current relationship.

This workshop is not a formal event—the structure and format is to allow for a comfortable and interactive environment. Come planning to share, as you chose, and learn by interacting.  Plan to relax and have fun as we explore together. The purpose is help individuals evaluate what they might do differently in future relationships, learn from their past, and hopefully, acquire new skills.

Terry Stanclift, LPC, will facilitate this workshop and is a licensed professional counselor with many years of experience in the mental health field. He has experience working with adults and a wide range of presenting problems.  He has also been divorced and studied this issue for many years. EWC Community Education will be taking registrations and payment for this workshop.
