Emotional Intelligence Workshop

Thursday, July 9 | 7:15 p.m.

Developing Our Emotional Intelligence in Turbulent Times:
There are very few moments in human history when there has been so much turmoil in the United States and in our world.  Not only are we experiencing fear, anger, and confusion with COVID-19, but all of us have lost our previous lives with little certainty of what our lives will be in the future.  Adding to the pandemic, the current and continuing racial unrest we see and experience impacts our lives.  These traumatic events compel us to manage our emotions.  There may be no guidebook for global trauma.  However, we do have the ability to develop and use our social and emotional learning in such anxiety-provoking and uncertain times.  Emotional intelligence encourages us to better understand our emotions as well as those of others, for our own well-being and for those that matter to us.
Join Marcia Albert as she presents Developing Our Emotional Intelligence in Turbulent Times.  Marcia will provide a framework to help develop and manage Emotional Intelligence, and share recommendations that will help us to communicate more effectively and to be better able to establish and maintain relationships. 

In advance, please read the attached questions, as well as the link to What Emotional Intelligence Is and Is Not in Psychology Today.

ISAIAH WOMEN MONTHLY BOOK CLUB

Tuesday, July 17 | 7:00 p.m. | Private Home

The Girl with Seven Names by Hyeonseo Lee

An extraordinary insight into life under one of the world’s most ruthless and secretive dictatorships – and the story of one woman’s terrifying struggle to avoid capture/repatriation and guide her family to freedom.
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of the millions trapped by a secretive and brutal communist regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and, as the famine of the 1990s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realize that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty and starvation she witnessed surely her country could not be, as she had been told “the best on the planet”?
Aged seventeen, she decided to escape North Korea. She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family.

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

#1 New York Times Instant Bestseller - Alaska, 1974. Ernt Allbright came home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier. Cora will do anything for the man she loves, even if it means following him into the unknown. Thirteen-year-old Leni, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, has little choice but to go along, daring to hope this new land promises her family a better future. But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates. And in their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of the night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own.
