Empathy and trust are a basic foundation for effective understanding, communication and relationships. For healthcare, not only do health care professionals use empathy to initiate a relationship, they must complete the emotion with an action to create acts of compassion, relieve suffering, bridge a difficult moment - in essence - create a compassionate connection. Whether for managing patient loyalty, handling complaints, diffusing conflict, or participating in the healing process, empathy and subsequent actions/responses create compassionate moments as part of the total patient experience. Participants of a 3Cs of Compassionate Interactions will learn to: -Explore personal values related to empathy and compassion and gain "other" perspective of these conditions and values -Identify various verbal and non-verbal factors associated with demonstrating compassion -Turn potential barriers into purposeful, soulful interaction moments -Translate personal empathy to a compassionate connection to respond sensitively and effectively to others

If there's one thing FBG Jenn and Kristen believe, it's that "diet" is a four-letter word and that a number on the scale should never determine your self-worth. We are passionate about helping others to embrace a healthy lifestyle as a way to feel good, have fun, and get the energy they need to do the things they want to do in life.

Sometimes we are racing with the wind, and other times we are lighting a candle for a loved one. Sometimes we have to learn a new way to live. It's a celebration because we are here, breathing life with a cup half-full. We learn from the celebrations and in turn, bring joy to others while keeping watch for the wonderful.
