THE LOST SKILL OF ASKING FOR HELP

March 16

Vinfen’s Family Support Center and Autism Support Center presents The Lost Skill of Asking for Help presented by Cheryl Ryan Chan.

Join us virtually on March 16. Two times are being offered:
11:00 a.m. (sponsored by Family Support Center)
6:30 p.m. (sponsored by Autism Support Center)

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Many find it difficult to ask for help. In today’s society, some may think that asking for help can be perceived as a sign of weakness. This is a damaging belief with a ripple effect that can contribute to caregiver burnout and leave the people in need of care vulnerable. It’s important for us to challenge these perceptions and practice the skill of asking for help. Join us as we explore the barriers to asking for help and identify strategies to approach seeking help with intention; so that, ultimately, the lives of caregivers and those we love can be better balanced and more fulfilled.
