NALP 139P - TimeSlips Creative Storytelling

Imagine where individuals with Dementia interact creatively with others, share ideas, feel understood and contribute to the environment in which they live. As a professional caregiver or health professional, imagine your efforts feeling more meaningful to you as you share time with a person with Dementia. The unit in which you work is more peaceful, and family members are happier with overall care and therapeutic offerings at your facility. You feel less 'burned out.' In this brand-new course offered exclusively through the joint efforts of www.TimeSlips.org and Lorain County Community College, students will learn core philosophies behind TimeSlips, basic 'Do's' and 'Don'ts' when working with someone with Dementia, and how creative expression is overlooked for our Geriatric population. In this hybrid course, students will take an online, five-module course (which can be started and stopped as daily schedules allow) and then meet once at the LCCC campus for in-person training and a hands-on TimeSlips group at a local facility. Certification, included in the class fee, includes feedback on students' skills sets and support through the national TimeSlips office. NOTE: This course does not certify one to teach TimeSlips; only to facilitate sessions. If an individual previously trained in TimeSlips Creative Storytelling, this is the required re-training for certification.

NHLH 116C - Yoga

This seven-week course will utilize the science of Yoga, incorporating breath, gentle stretching, strengthening, deep relaxation, affirmation and meditation as a tool to experience a heightened sense of well being in and out of class. We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged. Dress comfortably, bring a mat and a positive outlook.

NMUS 257C - Exploring Hymns of Ohio and the Western Reserve

Take a hymnal walk through the highways and byways of Ohio; see how hymns continue to adapt to the needs of a rapidly changing society. After the Northwest Ordinance of 1786, the Western Reserve Colony attracted pioneers, squatters and ambitious politicians; 'godlessness prevailed.' Some came to fight the devil and spread the gospel. Throughout our area's history, the waves of immigrants rallied around causes and worked and sang together. Hymns shaped history as much as history shaped hymns. Itinerant singing masters moved from community to community to set up short-term singing schools. Town meetings debated morality, temperance, equal rights and slavery. As more people gathered in Lorain County, several churches were organized and hymn singing flourished. Our area has a rich history of hymns and hymn writers.

NSOC 280C - Northern China: Emperors, Warriors, Dynasties, Dragons, and Mystery

China is among the most ancient of civilizations and yet one of the most powerful economic engines of the 21st Century. Come with us as we explore the ancient and modern seat of power, Beijing with its amazing Forbidden City and the nearby Great Wall of China. We fly to the ancient capital of Xian to see the only intact walled city in China and view the incredible Terra Cotta Warriors. On to Chongqing, the largest city in the world, that played such a major part in the WW II war between China and Japan, and the subsequent Communist revolution. We sail down the Yangtze River, marveling at the Three Gorges scenery and the impact of the world's largest dam on that scenery and the Chinese people. Finally, we look at China today in Shanghai, a scene of colonial domination in its history, but the driving force in today's economy, undergoing a building boom unparalled in human history. Along the way we will trace the history of the dynasties and most important emperors, as well as view China today through the eyes of some of its citizens.
