RUN, HIDE, FIGHT - Active Shooter Training
This workshop provides information on surviving an active shooter incident. "Shots Fired!" is the last thing you expect to hear in the workplace or at school. Unfortunately, the possibility of this violent event taking place in your community has become a reality that employees and students have to deal with. Although no one is exempt from this threat, injury or death does not have to be the inevitable outcome.

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will recognize the sound of gunfire, demonstrate the three response options, explain when each option should be used, and describe your interaction with law enforcement when they arrive.

Targeted Audience: All Students, Staff, and Faculty.

Instructors:S. C. Dedona, Support Services Captain;
A. Westbrook, Professional Standards Lieutenant

The Psychology Behind Saving Money and Other Good Financial Habits
Most people can honestly say they believe it's important to spend within their means and to save money for the future. Unfortunately, good intentions are often at odds with how our mind works. For example, many people want to save for the future but have no motivation to because they have not imagined that future.

This course addresses the psychology behind saving money and adopting good financial habits. It will examine recent research related to how and why people save vs. spend and identify strategies for participants to change their financial mindset and develop new habits.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

* Understand why some people save for the future and other spend for the moment
* Identify non-productive financial patterns and habits
* Recognize the mental and behavioral habits of people who save
* Create a compelling financial future to motivate behavior change
* Understand how to improve the capacity to delay gratification while increasing enjoyment
* Identify seven simple tools to help change spending habits

Target Audience: This workshop is for anyone who would like to understand how to save money and develop good financial habits.

Initiating Difficult Conversations
There are conversations in which the stakes are high: asking for a raise, ending a relationship, giving a critical performance review, confronting disrespectful behavior, apologizing or disagreeing within a group.

This workshop is about developing the skills to initiate the conversations which most people find difficult, unpleasant and generally avoid. You will learn the practical skills involved in framing a problem without blame or defensiveness and how to keep the conversation productive.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
* Describe why arguing never helps
* Identify the three sides to any difficult conversation and where to begin
* Describe how to adopt a positive learning stance and think like a mediator
* Describe the process of separating intent from impact
* Identify the process of changing blame to contribution
* Describe ways to acknowledge feelings
* Describe how to use questions without eliciting defensiveness

Target Audience: Anyone wishing to improve their ability to initiate a difficult conversation.
*For Faculty/Staff Only*
