Welcome to the 2019 Retreat Class List. The Presenters have created a wonderful roster of new classes as well as annual favorites. This year attendees will receive a retreat manual with information about the DARE to Self-Care approach, evidenced based mind body techniques for managing blood sugar, class handouts and journal for taking notes.
As you look through our class offerings you will notice they correlate to the AADE 7 (American Association of Diabetes Educators) Model of Diabetes Self-Care Behaviors: healthy eating, being active, taking medication, monitoring, healthy coping, problem solving and reducing risks. In addition, we have developed class "type" designations which note how the individual classes are organized for learning styles.
Experiential: attendees listen to a short presentation and work on a handout together or perform an activity, which could be a discussion
Introspective: attendees learn a meditative or contemplative practice
Lecture Presentation: didactic with Q/A period only
Hands-On Expressive Art: immersive experience in creative expression
Interactive: attendees verbally discuss new learning (this differs from didactic in that the Presenter modifies what they are saying based on the class discussion.)
