Social & Family Wellbeing



  • 10 Ways to Have a Better Conversation – In this 10-minute TED talk, Celeste Headlee draws upon decades of interview experience as a radio host to deliver 10 powerful rules for having better conversations. Notably, she implores listeners to recall all the past advice they’ve been given – like “smile and nod to show you’re paying attention” – and throw it out the window. Instead, she offers the rules that all great interviewers live by. Even if you only master one of them, she says, you’ll be on your way to becoming a better communicator.

  • Tips for Managing Back-to-School Anxiety – After many months away from the classroom, kids may feel especially anxious about starting the new school year.  Some kids will be undertaking a new round of distance learning and others may face re-entering a classroom that looks very different.  This article details some symptoms to look out for and tips to help manage anxiety.

  • Managing Your Finances in the Age of COVID-19 – Making sense of your personal finances can be a daunting task, especially in this time of uncertainty.  This webinar will discuss how to evaluate your current financial situation, a framework for developing your financial goals, and factors to consider when investing.  Wednesday, August 26th at 12pm ET.  RSVP HERE.
