Learn to Say No to Stress With Dr. Tammy Haslett as Featured Speaker at Salute to Working Women Luncheon

Article Body

Do you feel like you’re being pulled in a thousand different directions every day?  Today’s working women’s days are spent dealing with deadlines, meetings, telephone calls, and countless interruptions…and that’s before she gets home to her second job where nights are spent shuttling children to soccer games and cheerleading practice, caring for an aging family member, and making sure that everything on her “to-do” list has been accomplished before bed.

This year’s Salute to Working Women at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown features Dr. Tammy Haslett, president of Footsteps Psychological Services, who will speak on “Just Say No to Stress!”

This year’s luncheon will be held from 11:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the UPJ Living/Learning Center.

Learn the anatomy of stress and understand the many ways it affects us.  Learn the importance of family, friends, exercise, diet, hobbies, and sleep in managing stress from a true expert in the field.

A licensed psychologist and working mother of two young children, Dr. Haslett brings a practical approach and first-hand perspective to the task of managing stress.  She is an adjunct assistant professor at UPJ and is active with the Laurel Mountains Psychological Association.  Dr. Haslett is a member of the American Psychological Association.  She earned her MA and PhD in applied cognitive aging psychology from the University of Akron, and received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from UPJ.

The seminar luncheon is presented by the UPJ Office of Outreach and Professional Services in partnership with Sodexho Campus Services.    The cost is $24 per person or purchase a table of eight for $182.  The registration deadline is Friday, April 6.  Additional information on the luncheon may be obtained by calling the Outreach Office at 814-269-2099 or visiting their website at www.upj.pitt.edu/outreach.
