A workshop, hosted by Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley, will provide participants with “Tips to manage daily frustration and avoid angry outbursts, ways to cope with family conflict and parenting challenges, techniques and creative activities to de-stress, seeking support at holiday time, and understanding and accepting others as they are.”

This free LifeForward workshop is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, November 10, at Savia Community Center, located at 23780 Newhall Ave in Newhall. Individuals will be able to learn how to deal with the emotion of anger, feel better about themselves and enjoy the holidays more.

Previous workshops in the series have helped women and attendees learn how to improve relationships and communicate more effectively, select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, maintain healthy eating and exercise habits, along with advice before, during and after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, build the skills necessary to succeed, and be the powerful women they are meant to be. All are welcome.


Zonta offers nine free LifeForward workshops on a monthly basis (with the exception of June, July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers.

Workshops are organized by topics developed from surveys showing expressed interest and needs. Flyers and a schedule of upcoming workshops are posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic. Pre-registration is not required for those who simply wish to attend a workshop, but those who wish to hold a space for the more popular workshops or obtain further information on the upcoming workshop can call (661) 288-0117.
