Q & A with Amy Moreno

What is Constructive Suffering? 
Developing mental strength and emotional resilience in the midst of hard and painful times in our lives.

Why do you want to share this information with others?  
This is a topic that comes up a lot in counseling sessions. I personally have found a lot of help and hope in understanding a good framework for suffering and in applying helpful coping mechanisms when undergoing difficult times in life. These things seem to resonate with clients also.

What is the format for the class? 
Lecture and guided discussion. Outside reading and homework is encouraged.

Who should take this class? 
Anyone who might be facing challenging situations in their life and would like to know how to manage the hardships and difficulties more effectively.  Although it is geard toward the "fellow sufferer," this class is also approved for CEU credit for any counselor or social worker.
