July 19 Writing through the Darkness: Easing Your Depression with Paper
and Pen will provide practical, supportive guidance in using creative writing to
ease symptoms of depression. Our presenter, Elizabeth Maynard Schaefer, Ph.D., has led Stanford University's creative
writing program for people with mood disorders since developing the program in
1998. A science writer and mental health advocate, Schaefer recently
published a book that shares its title with this talk.
July 26 Building Better Bones with Safe
and Effective Exercise will focus on exercises to stop bone loss and prevent
fractures, and even build bone. Sherri Betz, physical therapist and Pilates
educator, will encourage participants to join in the fun, if only from one's
chair. Betz's second edition of The Osteoporosis Exercise Book, plus her four
DVDs of exercises for gaining bone strength, reducing low back pain, and
healthy pregnancy will be available.
Presenters' books (and DVDs) may be checked out or bought
after their talks.
Authors will be available to sign your purchases.
