alexia bouckoms

 

Alexia Bouckoms

Introducing Alexia Bouckoms as an extraordinary example how she made her way through the unimaginable to redefine her life as a shining example of how to live life and its blessings.

Until 23 years ago I could be described as ‘Alexia Bouckoms, a dentist and public health researcher, mother of three children, and wife of Anthony John Bouckoms’. Then on February 25, 1996 while driving home from an indoor soccer game during a terrible windstorm my life was altered in unfathomable ways when a tree fell on our car resulting in the death of my husband and six year old son sitting in the back seat, in a spinal cord injury for me, and non-life-threatening injuries for my other two children. Since regaining consciousness 39 days later I have strived to fashion a life out of the rubble. Most importantly I can say that Sarah and Miles have gone on to lead enviable, well-adjusted lives. Upon gathering my physical, emotional and psychological strengthens I was able to provide a stable homestead and did my best to raise money and awareness regarding the possibility of restoring function following my spinal cord injury. At first I couldn’t imagine living without half of my body functioning. But now I can truly say I’ve had a remarkable time in spite of Not Walking. Sure I would be delighted if there were a ‘cure’ for my paralysis. However, I can’t wait to walk to live my life. I have to live it now.

 

Please Join Me In Welcoming Alexia Thursday December 5th.

Please join me in welcoming our November Guest Speaker Joyce Saltman.

 

Thursday November 7, 2019 from 7-8:30 PM

 

Topic: A Humorous Look at Aging and Sex

 

joyce saltman

Joyce Saltman

A Humorous Look at Aging and Sex

Through a minimum of scientific data and a maximum of humor, this session will deal with the trials and tribulations of being a Senior! Combining research about this important topic for the “senior citizen” set (those of us who are old but not dead!), Joyce will show the beauty of having loving relationships rather than Olympic sex, how insignificant “perfect bodies” are (when our vision is not that good anyway!), and how to see all of our aging issues in a humorous light.

 

About Joyce Saltman

Joyce Saltman is a professor Emeritus of Special Education at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, CT. She chose to receive her doctoral degree from Columbia, because she loved the color of their doctoral gown. It was no small feat that she was able to persuade her mentor to allow her to write her dissertation on “Humor in Adult Learning.” She also holds four graduate degrees in the fields of Special Education and Counseling. Joyce’s innovative teaching style has led to the development of a graduate course entitled. “The Enhancement of Learning Through Humor,” as well as a summer institute called, “Healing, Education Laughter and Play (HELP).”

Her experience in the areas of education, therapy, and comedy has provided an outstanding background for her research on “The Therapeutic Value of Laughter.” Since 1983, when Joyce began lecturing on “Laughter,” she has been interviewed by national radio and TV. Her dynamic seminars and articles, always peppered with humor, address such topic as dealing with difficult people, laughter as therapy, parenting, and relationships. Her goal is to enlighten, educate, and entertain while the audience laughs. Joyce has been speaking on “Laughter” and related uplifting topics since 1983, and hopes to be able to die laughing – but not too soon!!!

Joyce is the 2015 recipient of the Doug Fletcher Lifetime Achievement Award from the Association for the Applied and Therapeutic Humor (AATH). She also is the first winner of the Outstanding Faculty Award from the Academy for Continuing Education, (ACE) Boynton Beach, FL, as well as the 2015 First prize joke-telling award from the International Society for Humor Studies (ISHS).
As a result of her speaking engagements she has so far been able to donate over one million dollars to her favorite various charities. Intermittently referred to as the “Guru of Laughter,” and “The Chubby Broad from Brooklyn, Joyce helps people lighten up wherever she goes!

Life Reimagined – with Dana Hilmer and Wendy Perrotti

Come play with us and reimagine what is possible in your life!

Reboot: Get clear on what you love in your life, what you are tolerating, and what you’d like to change.

BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Maria Sirois is an inspirational speaker, consultant, and licensed clinical psychologist who has worked in the fields of wellness and positive psychology for twenty years. As a lecturer and motivational speaker, Maria has been invited to keynote at conferences for wellness organizations, businesses, hospitals, hospices, religious and philanthropic institutions internationally. A master storyteller, her lectures and workshops combine powerful and moving anecdotes with rigorous research to enable teams, families and individuals to build a work life and a home life of capacity, grit, meaning and happiness. Addressing topics as diverse as “The Art and Science of Resilience,” “Flourishing No Matter What,” and “A Course in Happiness,” she has been called both a “true teacher,” and “an orator of great power and beauty.”

Recently, she has created a webinar series for presenters, keynoters, teachers and workshop leaders who seek to enable audiences to successfully sustain positive transformation. Teaching for Transformation combines the wisdom of positive psychology with the art of mastery teaching and attendees from around the world have begun to implement her understandings of how to craft a program so that audiences are informed, deeply inspired, and motivated to integrate habit change.

Her clinical work brings the bounty of positive psychology and mind/body medicine to families and children facing terminal illness, and to the staff who care for them. Trained at the New England Deaconness Mind/Body Clinic (Boston, Mass.) and at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (Boston, Mass.) she currently works as a consultant to families, psychology staffs and hospital and hospice organizations. She received her doctorate from the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in 1993.

An author as well, Maria has published two works: A Short Course in Happiness After Loss (and Other Dark, Difficult Times) brings together the science of positive psychology and the art of resilience to offer a curriculum of sorts for those who are seeking strength, uplift and meaning while wrestling with the harshness of life. Each reflection offers wisdom and practical guidance for those who are suffering from pain, loss, shock, managing chronic stress, or experiencing the disappointments and loneliness of life.

Every Day Counts: Lessons in Love, Faith and Resilience From Children Facing Illness is the tale of Maria’s psychology internship at Dana-Farber. Every Day Counts brings to us the wisdom of the children she treated, wisdom that reminds us in essence that there is no time but now to live life with an open heart. Fearless when facing the suffering of our children, and determined to bring forth the gifts they offer, it is a book, as Paul Newman has written, “{of} great courage, something to lean on in tough times.” Compassion abounds in this book, for the children, for those that love them, and for the caregivers of our world.

Armed with her B.S. Degree in Biology from The College of William and Mary, Catherine enjoys debunking fitness and nutrition myths to help her clients achieve lasting results and uncover the many benefits of an active lifestyle. Catherine has been quoted for her expertise in WebMD magazine, on SparkPeople.com, LiveStrong.com, EmpowHER, Fitbie, and WorldLifestyle, and writes as a blogger for the Huffington Post. Catherine has zero tolerance for diets, supplements, and detoxes (and not just because she’s a huge fan of gluten-full bread!), but lots of love for those new to fitness. An avid runner, she has competed in races from the 1500m to the full marathon, and loves helping others start a running routine. While no longer a classroom teacher, Catherine enjoys using her Master’s in Education from The University of Connecticut to promote literacy as a volunteer tutor in local schools.
