It’s no secret that 2+ years of the COVID-19 pandemic is leading to higher levels of employee burnout. This is confirmed in recently published reports and is something we are witnessing in our organization – both in staff and management. At CLA, we have undertaken several initiatives to address this issue with one being a workshop on June 28th. We’ve invited Judy Croon to come to Atikokan to speak about ‘Relieving Work-Related Stress with Humour’.
Knowing we can’t be the only organization in Atikokan experiencing employee burnout, Community Living Atikokan is happy to sponsor this event and we’re inviting you and your staff to join us for this 3-hour workshop free of charge. Judy is presenting the workshop from 9am – 12pm and repeating it from 2pm – 5pm.

Title of Workshop:
‘Relieving Work-Related Stress with Humour’
Overview of Presentation:
Stress is a major cause of most illnesses, and humour is an amazing way to relieve it – especially now. Harvard studies show that when you are stressed, your brain shrinks. However, when you laugh, you relax; and when you relax, you learn. This inspirational workshop explores seven stress-relieving ingredients during these challenging times: a positive attitude, perseverance, forgiveness, teamwork (Dealing with Difficult People), family and friends, healthy mental activity and healthy physical activity.
– How to cope with information overload
– How to appreciate the incredible medical benefits of humour
– How to Deal with Difficult People (People Who Aren’t As Perfect As Us)
– Discover how happiness is a mindset
– Increase your chances of surviving a heart attack by five times and increase your lifespan and quality of life by laughing
– Increase your brain’s reasoning and decision-making
– Learn the surprising key to motivation and the most important gift you can give your child
