DVD Lecture Series: Cognitive Beharvrioal Therapy: Techniques for Retraining Your Brain  


Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a well-tested collection of techniques for managing moods and modifying undesirable behaviors through self-awareness, critical analysis, and taking steps toward gradual, goal-oriented change. CBT illuminates the links between thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health and uses those connections to develop plans for self-improvement. In this DVD lecture series, Dr. Satterfield will discuss CBT in theory and in practice, through an in-depth discussion of techniques and therapy sessions. He will review setting goals, the importance of setting those goals, how to formulate a plan to achieve those goals and common concerns that CBT can help you address.

Will You Pass Your Next Driving Test? 


According to the DMV, your mental and/or physical condition or your inability to follow traffic laws regardless of age determines whether your license is renewed, restricted, suspended, or revoked. However, all drivers age 70 or older must renew their driver license in person at a DMV office. To prepare for this, Betty Berry will present a seminar that focuses on how to study for the written DMV test and provides hints on what you should do if required to take a road test. The talk is geared to make older adults more comfortable in taking driving tests and will also provide a collection of test questions. For reservations, call 517-6261. 

Date: Tuesday, August 22


Time: 1:30 p.m.
