Thursday

Coping with Loss - Weekly Each Thursday at 6:30 pm, beginning October 8, 2015, Supporting Any Kind of Grief or Loss

Grief is a powerful depressant and can be caused by any number of losses, such as losing employment, loss of a friendship or marriage, death of a loved one, including a pet, or a move to a new place. Healing from loss can be accelerated through group therapy by creating new relationships that are understanding of the struggles we are experiencing and by associating with those whom are also coping with similar emotions. The next support group for anyone experiencing grief will begin on Thursday, October 8, 2015, at 6:30 pm for eight weeks. Please call Bob Fyfe at 314-467-0155 for questions or to reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Behind The Badge - Weekly Each Thursday at 6 p.m.

Do you work in Corrections? Job-related stress is widespread and, in many cases, severe among correctional officers. An inherent source of stress for correctional officers is supervising individuals who do not want to be confined, who threaten violence and who act violently. Among coping with difficult inmates, officers also face understaffing, overtime, rotating shift work, and supervisor demands. Stress can cause impaired health, burnout, early retirement, substance abuse, and impaired family life.
