Sharpen Your Social Skills

Coming back from a year of isolation and exhaustion is tough and can be daunting. We all have been through a difficult and challenging year since the pandemic started and everyone’s social experiences have been impacted in some way. How do we manage the social anxiety, enhance our social skills and connection? How do we become more comfortable and enjoy social situations again? What does healthy coping look like if we are struggling with the anxiety of returning to “normal?” The Sharpen Your Social Skills workshop is here to lessen that anxiety and make this transition of returning to “normal” less intimidating. From this workshop, you will increase your healthy communication skills, reduce the impact stress has on your communication skills, and learn strategies like setting boundaries or practicing self-advocacy to help you get back out there and feel confident in social settings again.  Sharpen Your Social Skills Wellness Workshop Overview
