Veterans Transitioning Home: Relationships (For Veterans)
The adjustment to civilian life can be challenging for the thousands of veterans returning home. Adjusting to relationships with spouses, family, friends and co-workers can be difficult. The honeymoon period immediately after demobilization usually ends shortly and vets are faced with the reality that not only have they changed but so have others in their absence. Family roles often require renegotiation and lost intimacy will need to be regained. Relating to civilians in general may be awkward and require some adapting. This workshop will address the social transition process for returning veterans; identifying the most common issues they face and describing ways of re-establishing relationships.

Interpersonal Violence Survivor Support Ally Training

By deciding to work in a University setting, we have all joined a village of professionals seeking to provide students with the best resources and care possible.  Sexual Assault and intimate partner violence are not new topics but have become front and center in recent years as individuals share their experiences and participate in movements like #METOO.  UNCG has taken a step forward by developing the Campus Violence Response Center (CVRC), a confidential resource for survivors.  However, the response doesn’t always begin in the CVRC but instead starts with our campus partners.

This interactive presentation will highlight the campus and community resources necessary to create a safer, non-violent campus culture.  Staff and faculty will learn skills for preventing violence and responding to survivors in a trauma informed and caring way.

Leaders Confronting Workplace Bullying
According to the February 2014 Workplace Bullying Institute's U.S. Workplace Bullying Survey, 27% of employees have current or past experience with bullying, bosses are the majority of bullies, and 72% of employers deny, discount, encourage, rationalize or defend it. Because of this continuing prevalence of workplace bullying and its harmful effects, it is important for employers to know how to recognize, confront and stop bullying in their workplaces.

Estate Planning Basics

Believe it or not, you have an estate. In fact, nearly everyone does. Your estate is comprised of everything you own. No matter how large or how modest, everyone has an estate and something in common—you can’t take it with you when you die.

When that happens—and it is a “when” and not an “if”—you probably want to control how those things are given to the people or organizations you care most about.
