Winter seminar #2 – ‘Holiday Blues’ (and what you can do about them) Friday, Dec. 15, 3 p.m. with Adam Jones, MSW

The holidays are supposed to be full of happiness and great joy, yet some of us feel ‘blue’ during the “most wonderful time of the year.”

We are fortunate here at Timber Valley to have friends around us … often, however, we are shy about talking about how ‘blue’ we may feel during such a ‘happy’ season.

Adam Jones a social worker with Compass Behavioral Health will be in the park on Friday, Dec. 15, at 3 p.m., to share ideas on understanding this seasonal affectation and he’ll suggest techniques for reducing stress, anxiety and depression that are focused around the holiday season.

Adam has a Master of Social Work degree and is a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor I (CADCI). He has had a wide array of experience including working in homeless shelters, assisted living facilities, memory care facilities, and hospice agencies.

Adam is a strong proponent of trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, and person-centered care with a focus on ensuring individuals maintain their autonomy. His background in mental health, in conjunction with his curiosity understanding and navigating systems, makes him an asset in understanding and addressing older adult behavioral health needs throughout Douglas County.

Bring along a holiday hors d’oeuvre to share with friends and neighbors.
