CHICAGO — With tighter budgets, smaller staffs and ever-changing technology, working in a public library is not for the faint hearted, so it’s important to keep both heart and mind healthy. Make a commitment this January, when you join PLA and instructor Pat Wagner, partner and trainer, Pattern Research Inc., Denver, Colo., at 1 p.m. CST, Jan. 23, for a live, one-hour webinar, “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Stress Management.”

Wagner will share a successful stress management plan that includes four main strategies: preparing for a stressful event or day; finding respite to re-energize during the workday; repairing the physical and emotional damage during and after difficult times; and preventing unhealthy stress with better choices. She’ll offer ideas to customize these strategies for both home and work and for both self and group.

Registration for “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Stress Management” costs $28 (PLA Members), $31.50 (ALA Members) and $35 (Nonmembers). Groups of any size can register for individual webinars for $129.
