IMMACULATA UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES AUGUST WORKSHOPS

Immaculata University will offer two on–campus undergraduate workshops during the month of August:
Understanding Mutual Funds will be presented by Harris Tahir, M.B.A. on Friday, August 13, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Room 6 of Good Counsel Hall. This course examines Mutual Funds within the financial services industry. Participants will explore and evaluate Mutual Fund classifications—Aggressive Growth, Growth and Income, Balance Funds, and Money Markets—the risks associated with each classification, and the relationship of Mutual Funds to individual stocks and stock ratios. The cost is $305 on one credit or for non-credit, $160.
Stress Reduction and Healing Through Imagery For Better Work and Life examines guided imagery as an effective tool to develop an "inner support system" and to facilitate relaxation, natural healing, and coping abilities. In this workshop, participants learn how to combine breathing, relaxation, and interactive imagery to cope with specific challenges of daily stress including work stress, fatigue, insomnia, muscle tension, and reactivity. Participants will be able to solve problems utilizing a more relaxed, focused state of
mind, and they will acquire skills that promote improved immune functioning. This workshop includes a review of imagery and relaxation theory and techniques and guided exercises. Comfortable, loose clothing is recommended. The course will be offered by Miriam Franco, LCSW, PsyD, in Room 1 of Good Counsel Hall, on Friday, August 13, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost is $305 for one credit or $160 for non-credit.
