Please join the Eckstein Counseling Team & special guest Martin Abdo, Certified Peer Specialist at Harborview Medical Center for a workshop on effectively managing stress.
The workshop will take place Wednesday, March 4th 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm in the Eckstein Library.
Parents & Students are cordially invited to this workshop with Martin Abdo on a 4-step process for effectively managing stress. The method he developed is called OPA which stands for Organize. Prioritize. Act. OPA is a cognitive behavioral tool that Martin Abdo developed, in November 2009, to reduce stress quickly and effectively. It helps manage overwhelming stress, create daily structure, and assists with goal setting. We hope you and your student will join us.
