EACE WEBINAR: Understanding Our Students Through Transition Theory

Monday, May 1 2017| 2:00-3:00 PM EDT (Rescheduled from April 24)

Participants will gain an understanding of the transitions that our students and clients go through using Schlossberg’s Transition theory of Situation, Self, Support, Strategies (4 S’s) and what you can do to assist a “stuck” client.

EACE WEBINAR: Generations in the Workplace

Wednesday, May 10, 2017 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Are you confused about generations? Are you unsure if you identify with your generational cohort? Do you have questions about how to interact with people from generations different than yours (or even in your generation?!)? Do you find yourself making snap judgments about people from certain generations? Join EACE for a webinar that will explore possible ways to think about some of these questions. We’ll talk about the definition of a generation, trends for each life stage, and the overarching values/strengths/culture that each generation carries with them.
