“Finding Peace in a Complicated World”
The New Reform Temple Mental Health Initiative
The New Reform Temple is committed to nurturing mental health.
We are offering three engaging and relevant programs to be held at the Temple. We encourage people to sign up for all the programs which are relevant to their lives. Pre-registration is required. You may certainly encourage your friends outside the synagogue to participate. But, they will need to sign up on their own.
Take Two of These: Humor and Laughter
Facilitator: Jamie Copaken, LSCSW
Thursday, February 22 7:00pm – 8:30 pm
Can laughter cure disease and solve difficult problems? It can change your outlook, speed recovery from illness, elevate mood, and help you navigate life’s bumpy rides. Explore what humor and laughter can do and why it’s an essential, and often overlooked, part of our communication, health, and recovery. The workshop will discuss how we can harness humor for our emotional and physical health.
