Purdue University North Central will host the seminar “Finding the Power of Joy in Working with Animals” presented by the Independent Cat Society, on Tuesday, Aug. 4 from 1 to 4 p.m. in in Library-Student-Faculty Building Assembly Hall, Room 02. The event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Dr. Linda Harper, author and clinical psychologist, will help explain the tools needed to work through the roller-coaster ride of emotions that are experienced through each day. She will share strategies that help to cope with that heartbreak and frustration that can often come with helping others.
Her topics will include balancing and making space and taking care of yourself; letting go of the journey of animals, others and handling the “what ifs;’ setting limits; staying connected and handling grief.
Registration is $20 through July 19. Registration after July 20 and at the door is $25. The registration fee includes a copy of Harper’s book, “The Power of Joy in Giving to Animals.” It is a worthwhile read for those who work with animals, children, the elderly or any other group that often requires special care, attention and advocacy.
