KARE Offers Free Seminars to Baton Rouge and New Orleans Businesses
Business consulting psychologists will be offering two free seminars to help rebuild businesses in the Hurricane Katrina-affected region. Hosted by KARE (Katrina Aid and Relief Effort) these workshops will be open to the public.
The first workshop in Baton Rouge will be from 6 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2007 at Louisiana State University (LSU) in room 212 of Efferson Hall. The second workshop in New Orleans will be from 1 – 4:30 p.m. on Friday Nov. 2, 2007 at Tulane University in room 130 of Goldring/Woldenberg Hall.
At both seminars Dr. Joan Brannick will give a presentation entitled “The News Work of Finding and Keeping Great Employees.” Also, at the Nov. 2 seminar, Dr. Diana Clarke will give a presentation entitled "Keeping Your Boat Afloat: Handling Stress Post-Katrina." The program has been aided by sponsorship from LSU and Tulane University.
Over the past 2 years, KARE has provided free services to business organizations and individuals affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. KARE’s goal is to help local organizations and individuals rebuild, renew, and refocus their organizations and lives to help develop an even stronger economic base. KARE is a joint project of SIOP and APA Division 13 (Consulting Psychology).
