Three Key Skills for Building Sustainable Communities

Community
Peace Trust, Route 165, 539 Beach Pond Road, Voluntown, CT

Presented by Partners in Healthy Communities
“Sustainability” has become a buzzword in recent years as communities try to avoid continuing drains on their citizen's time, energy, and resources. But achieving the perfect balance of supply and consumption has proven hard to do in practice, as personalities clash and entrenched positions slow down the routes to resolution.
To assist cities, towns, and organizations to come to grips with these elusive issues, Partners in Healthy Communities will present a seminar on Three Key Skills for Building Sustainable Communities.Programming will run from 9:30 to 12:30 on Saturday, July 26, at the Voluntown Peace Trust (539 Beach Pond Road, Voluntown). There is no fee but donations to Partners in Healthy Communities are welcome.

Featured speakers will address the following skill areas:

Compassionate Communication with Mark Roberts will review the basics of non-violent communication techniques pioneered by Marshall Rosenberg. These skills are highly effective at resolving often intractable conflicts through understanding each other's feelings and searching for common solutions which satisfy each party's needs.

Holistic Mental Health Treatments with author and TV host Gracelyn Guyol. Gracelyn will outline the benefits of a nutrient-dense diet, exercise, and other simple methods to reduce symptoms of mental illness. Gracelyn, author of Healing Depression & Bipolar Disorder Without Drugs and Who's Crazy Here and host of the popular TV series Restoring Health Holistically, was appointed to serve on the Connecticut Children's Mental Health Task Force as Complementary and Alternative Medicine Expert in September of 2013.

LEAN Optimization with Dr. David Cooper will present the benefits of employing LEAN techniques on a community-wide basis. For example, the food distribution system typically includes farmers, processors, transporters, warehouses and grocers. Applying LEAN techniques across all participants commonly results in double-digit reductions in waste and cost. Involvement by companies and workers is pivotal, requiring collaborative and coordinated efforts, with significant economic benefits for all stakeholders.

These introductory talks will be followed by more in-depth future programming in response to public interest.

To reserve a ticket to this program (suggested donation $20.00) go to: www.3skills2014.eventbrite.com; or, go to Facebook: Partners in Healthy Communities; email jonpersson7@gmail.com; or call 860-857-2687.
