Managing Acute Pain for Recovering Persons
From root canals to surgeries to broken bones, there will likely be times in one's life when pain medications will be necessary. For a person in recovery, this can be a risky situation yet everyone deserves effective pain management. In the name of protecting one's recovery, having some ideas of how to manage pain and maintain recovery is prudent planning; this talk will go over ideas for how to do this. The focus will be on acute pain as chronic pain is a whole other conversation.

I Have to Be In a Relationship! Healthy Relationships, Boundaries, and Negotiating Relationships
We are social creatures and as humans we must be in relationships with each other. We have connections with one another. We affect others and others affect us. This lecture explores the types of relationships we have with each other, the boundaries we must create and maintain to practice good self-care and self-compassion, and how to negotiate our needs and wants with others.
