New Braunfels Public Library is hosting Gillian Amaro, Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor, this June and July for a series on Empowered Mothering. This two-part series will take place beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5th and
Tuesday, July 10th
in the Library’s large meeting room.
“Through this series you’ll understand yourself
better, acknowledge and reduce your stress, and increase healthy
communication,” said Toni Davenport, Adult Services Librarian. “June 5th
will be about self-care. Goals for this class are to define self-care,
assess your ‘resting stress rate,’ learn three simple ways to de-stress, plan
for future support and to experience short, relaxing guided imagery.”
“July 10th will be about healthy
communication,” Davenport noted. “Goals for this class are to assess your own
feelings and needs authentically, experience setting a boundary, learn three
basics of boundary setting, learn new ways to state your needs and to again
experience short, relaxing guided imagery.”
approached me about hosting a free series for female care-givers to help them
address the stresses in their lives and to communicate their needs to their
families and friends,” Davenport added. “We worked to create this
two-part program to help women address these important issues before they
become serious and potentially detrimental to their health.”
program is made possible by the Friends of the New Braunfels Public
Library. It is open to the public and has no admission fee.
