WEST HAVEN — In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, "/books/buyxanaxonline/"> is what kept many companies going even when the power was out and the sales floor covered in mud. With that in mind, the University of New Haven’s Center for Family Business (CFB) will host a workshop to help business owners themselves make their companies more resilient. " /#here">here workshop is presented by Dramaworks InterActive, of Northampton, Mass.

Working under the direction of Erik Muten, a clinical psychologist and organizational consultant, Dramaworks Interactive uses interactive theater as a way to enhance the learning experience. The group will explore how people can shift their mindsets and behaviors for a more positive outcome when facing major challenges such as Hurricane Sandy. One goal of the course, according to CFB Director Paul Sessions, is to help business owners increase resiliency and adjust to obstacles such as changing economic trends, demographic and market changes and technical advancements.

“Resilience is really how fast the individual or organization springs back from exceptional external stressors,” Sessions says. “Resilience is the experience of being confronted by circumstance, and then acting not as a victim, but as a navigator, accepting the reality of the new situation, and coming up with creative solutions to challenges.”

The session will take place from  5:30 to 9:30 p.m. November 27 at Grassy Hill Country Club, 441 Clark Lane, Orange. Non-member family businesses may attend for $75 per person, or $200 for three people from the same company. To register for the workshop or for information about CFB, call 203-932-7421 or visit newhaven.edu/cfb.
