2021 Balancing Act: Personal, Professional, Pandemic

The Chamber will host a leadership webinar in collaboration with the Family Resource Center titled “2021 Balancing Act: Personal, Professional, Pandemic” with Bobbi Beale of Case Western Reserve University, on Tuesday, February 16 from 12 – 1 pm via Zoom Webinar.

During the COVID-19 crisis, we have all had to make fundamental adjustments to how we work, educate our children and take care of our families and ourselves. We have increased concerns about safety due to the virus and the orders to stay at home and wear masks. We are all feeling the chronic stress as the pandemic stretches into year 2, and we may not even realize the impact on us, especially due to the inequities that have been brought to light.  We will focus on how to increase our own resiliency by tapping into the positive experience of compassion satisfaction and meaningful connections. Join us as we discuss the impact of COVID-19, along with the resilience-oriented practices that will see us all through to the other side.

Registration is free and can be done online at www.FindlayHancockChamber.com/WomensLeadership

This program is sponsored by the Family Resource Center, Hancock Federal Credit Union, and Cooper Tire & Rubber Company.

About Bobbi Beale:
Bobbi Beale, PsyD, is a clinical psychologist and a Senior Research Associate at the Center for Innovative Practices, part of the Begun Center at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Beale has over 30 years of practice and expertise in trauma, resilience, system of care, and behavioral health treatments for children, youth, and families, specializing in Intensive Home-Based Treatment and Adventure Therapy. She spends most of her time training, consulting, and providing technical assistance across Ohio to support behavioral health providers of multi-system youth and family services.

Bobbi has focused on designing non-traditional therapy programs for youth populations that are at risk or have trauma histories.  During the current pandemic, Bobbi teamed up with Maurie Lung to adapt their AT curriculum for telehealth application. They created a 12 session family therapy series for clinicians to provide virtually in an effort to support and stabilize families and were able to train over 200 therapists online. This program was so well received, they are working on additional virtual projects including a virtual AT parenting program and a podcast.

Her programs have utilized adventure therapy, a highly engaging and experiential treatment, to increase skills and resiliency for children, youth, and families.  She launched her own training and consulting business, Life Adventures for All, to continue working on validating AT with clinical research on new AT programs with a variety of applications: group, home-based and multi-family groups. Bobbi’s current personal adventure is to design and implement a program that combines adventure therapy with CIP’s home-based treatment model, to serve children and youth right at home with their families, where they belong.
