Calgary Winter Social

Nov 27, 2020

We would like to invite you to the annual Winter Social on Friday, Nov 27 2020 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. This always gives us the opportunity to kick back, relax and reconnect! The only difference is that we will be doing it virtually!

The evening will begin with a one-hour workshop on Healthy Thinking Habits. Hanna Zavrazhyna from The Immigrant Educational Society (TIES) will help us to learn basic concepts from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and apply them to our everyday life in order to develop and strengthen balanced thinking patterns and improve mood. Specifically, we will learn how to:

-Challenge negative thinking patterns

-Develop personal coping strategies

-Regain balance and clarity in our thoughts

Please RSVP to by Nov 24, 2020 and the link to the Google Meets will be sent to you.
