Shift therapist Melanie Katz will discuss how to hold safe conversations about suicide

How To Safely Hold Conversations About Suicide

Melanie Katz is back for round two of How To Safely Hold Conversations About Suicide. This topic seemed to be quite impactful for our community the first time, and given the time of year we are heading into, we thought it would be great to have this conversation again. Suicide isn’t always an easy topic to think about, let alone discuss. It is incredibly important that we do talk about it, and get our loved ones the help they need to prevent them from reaching a point of crisis. It’s normal to feel worried, helpless or confused when a loved one mentions suicide, but there’s a lot you can do to support them. In fact, your compassion and support could save a life. ​In this webinar delivered by Shift therapist Melanie Katz, you will engage in a discussion about suicide and how you can support loved ones, learn about community resources that are available to you, and get the chance to practice your newly acquired communication skills.

Shift Psychotherapist Interns, Laura Polisuk and Hayley Meyer will talk about the basics of mind and body connection

Understanding The Mind-Body Connection

What do you think when you hear the word diet? Most people associate the term with weight loss, cardiac health, blood pressure or cancer. In reality, our diet can impact so much more – even our mental health. Understanding the connection between food, exercise, and the brain can help our overall well-being. In this webinar Shift Psychotherapist Interns Laura Polisuk and Hayley Meyer will talk about the basics of mind and body connection, how food and exercise can impact our mental health, as well as physical health, and how we can use the mind-body connection to improve our lives.

Shift Psychotherapist Interns Louisa Larocque and Eden Jacobson will discuss the mental health benefits of journaling

The Power Of Journaling For Mental Health

Although journaling has been around for decades, it has rarely been reviewed through the lens of mental health. In this webinar delivered by Shift Psychotherapist Interns Louisa Larocque and Eden Jacobson, you will learn about how journaling is a meditative and extremely versatile tool for one’s mental health and wellness. Journaling comes in many forms and serves multiple purposes. Whether you’re artistic, organized, minimalistic, or analytical, there is something to write about for everyone! Eden & Louisa will also discuss various types of journaling, including the research demonstrating its effects on our mental health and its connection with art therapy. Suggestions for quick or “low maintenance” journaling will be provided, as well as recommendations for existing resources. Additionally, the webinar will end with a guided journaling exercise that is tailorable to all your needs and quirks.
