We have been grinding to put together our first support group! "Shake Break" is a support group for parents of children with special needs. Thanks to the support of Autism Home Support for getting the word out and the Bernard Weinger JCC in Northbrook for providing the space. Check back for more details as we solidify dates and times.
Thank you to the Village of Schaumburg for inviting us to participate in your Wellness Expo. We had a great time giving out stress balls, bookmarks, and notepads with our free advice about how to incorporate easy tips and tricks of preventative mental health. Those quick conversations have led to some wonderful opportunities to work with the Human Resources department and local leaders working with our aging population. Great work everyone!
Thank you to Rotary International for hosting Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi for networking and conversation. I was able to ask the Congressman about Free Access to Public Education (FAPE) and how to work with his Republican colleague, Peter Roskim, in advocating for students in their shared district in Barrington. We accepted more clients for educational advocacy thanks to your referrals. With summer just a few months away, feel free to contact us about questions for proper programs and activities to preserve goals met and exceeded during the school year.
LiveNLearn Consulting aims to help individuals, families, and professionals reconnect with their best selves. Life’s unpredictable nature puts a tremendous amount of stress on you and those that surround you at work and at home. Our in-home therapy sessions and workshops teach “behavioral band-aids” to manage difficult times.
After spending 37 years on an academic calendar, I'm not even trying to change. School is out; I needed a few weeks to re-charge my batteries. But, the mind never rests! Subscribe now to Lessons Learned to get our new blogs coming out in July!
Everyone, regardless of age or experience, deserves to be seen and heard without worrying that their story is not important enough or dramatic enough to be appreciated. LiveNLearn Consulting was founded to help individuals and families use their life experiences to successfully navigate current life struggles. We believe that everyone has a story that is best told in their own voice.
In counseling, LiveNLearn provides the opportunity for individuals and families to evaluate their past successes and learn how to apply those skills today. The role of all family members as well as generational expectations of family members is explored. LiveNLearn has specific talents in working with adolescents who struggle with a range of issues, from academic underachievement to addiction to eating disorders. We also have experience in working with “the sandwich generation,” adults who are caring for aging parents and growing children.
In schools, LiveNLearn works to tackle two of the largest concerns in education--retaining highly effective teachers and inspiring students to excel in this era of high stakes testing and rigorous academic standards. We believe the key to solving those problems is recognizing and respecting the individuals, teachers and students, who spend their days together. Relocation, divorce, grief and loss, and natural disasters run the gamut of stressful events that students--and teachers--bring into the classroom each day. Sharing how a common experience effects current beliefs and attitudes establishes connections allows for a deepening understanding of ourselves and enhances our educational experiences.
