Crisis Seminar Offered to Public

Siloam Springs, Ark (October 25, 1999) — PeopleCARE Clinics at John Brown University are offering "Crisis: Understanding It and Helping Yourself or Someone Through It" on November 9 at 7 p.m. The free seminar will meet in the Dye Lounge on the campus of John Brown University. The seminar is the third in the LifeSolutions Seminar series offered by PeopleCARE Clinics to the public.

"Crisis is not always bad; rather it represents a pivotal point in a person’s life. It can therefore bring opportunity as well as danger," said Carrie Oliver, L.A.C.

The seminar will focus on teaching supportive ways to approach crisis situations and how to identify common types of crisis. Speakers will also cover specific ways to encourage others who may be suffering and how to facilitate hope in the midst of a personal crisis. Carrie E. Oliver, L.A.C., and Nancy Schmer, R.N., L.P.C., will conduct the seminar.
