GOOD RELATIONSHIPS IS TOPIC FOR ZONTA WORKSHOP
A workshop to help participants recognize and develop good relationship behaviors is scheduled for the October LifeForward workshop hosted by Zonta Club of SCV. The free women’s workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. The workshop will help participants develop positive relationships at home, at work and at play.
Presenters will be Shana Vonn, a psychology professor, actor/writer/producer, and a survivor of domestic violence; Elise Moore, a registered MFT intern who facilitates a healthy relationships group at the local Domestic Violence Center; and Evelia (Eve) Scanlon, a motivational speaker, certified parent educator and domestic violence facilitator.
Vonn has dedicated her life’s work to being a voice for domestic violence victims and empowering youth across America. Moore also counsels survivors of domestic violence to help them reach their full, thriving potential.
The workshop will offer participants answers to the questions: What does a good relationship look like? and How does it make you feel? Participants also will be helped to recognize and address dysfunctional behaviors and will receive on-line tips to entering or re-entering the dating scene.
Participants are not required to register in advance, but free childcare is available through Single Mothers Outreach for women who register at least one week in advance at (661) 288-0117. Spanish translation also can be provided with advance request. The topic is expected to be a critical one for women who have been surviving a toxic relationship.
Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, establish a career path and get a job, maintain healthy eating and exercise habits, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be!
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS AM-1220 is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.
Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic. Pre-registration is not required for those who simply wish to attend a workshop, but those who wish to hold a space for the more popular workshops or obtain further information on the upcoming workshop, can call (661) 288-0117.
