Wellness Education

Shalom’s overall goal is to contribute to the emotional well-being of individuals, families and communities in Central Alberta. By providing education on matters relating to emotional and relational well-being, we can equip individuals and organizations to better respond to emotional and relational stresses and challenges in their lives and in their communities. Emotionally healthy individuals lead to healthier families that contribute to healthier communities. As part of our mandate, Shalom Counselling Centre collaborates with community partners to offer a variety of non-therapeutic educational presentations and workshops on a range of topics that reflect community need and interest. Some topics we facilitate include, but are not limited to:

  • Resilience: An Important Life Skill
  • Downsizing and Moving Forward 1: Conquering the Physical and Emotional Challenges of Downsizing
  • Downsizing and Moving Forward ll: Helping Someone Else to Downsize
  • Stress Management for Seniors
  • Building Better Boundaries
  • Bullying: It’s Not O.K.
  • Healthy Relationships for Teens
  • Grieving Well
  • Putting the Merry Back into Merry Christmas
