With a “Prevention” health report indicating that 90 percent of Americans stress over Christmas-related activities, the Fort Bragg Family Advocacy Program, Army Community Service, has originated one event that may help to relieve stress just in time for the holidays.
A “Stress Management” class will take place, Dec. 21, 9 to 11 a.m., at FAP offices, third floor of the Soldier Support Center (Building 4-2843 Normandy Drive).
Robert Shaw, FAP trainer, will instruct the class.
“It will cover very simple techniques that will combat stress and puts it in its own individual focus,” Shaw said.
Because stress is a part of every aspect of life, the class will teach attendees about ways to manage it.
It is free and open to Department of Defense cardholders and their Families. Registration is required and may be completed at https://bragg.armymwr.com/index.php?cID=8122.
The FAP program routinely offers workshops, seminars, intervention services and resources to enhance the lives of Soldiers and their Family members.
Some upcoming classes, all of which require registration, include:
“ScreamFree Parenting”, offered in three sessions, Monday to Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Learn to stay calm and connected to children.
“Active Parenting of Teens,” a two-session class, Tuesday and Dec. 21, 1 to 4 p.m. Learn methods of discipline and skills for clear, honest communication.
“Positive Discipline, two sessions, Jan. 2 and 4, 2018, 9 a.m. to noon. Help children develop a sense of responsibility. Learn to defuse power struggles.
