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.

NHET 107C - Chasing Tin - The Intriguing Hobby of License Plate Collecting

Did you used to try to spot license plates from as many states as you could on that road trip with mom and dad when you were a kid? Or maybe you're intrigued by the contemporary "specialty" issues sponsored by affinity organizations. With a myriad of colors, designs, origins, types, sizes and materials, collecting license plates is so much more than simply having a box of old tags in the attic, or nailing junkyard finds to the walls of a garage or barn. People collect license plates for a variety of reasons ' memories, nostalgia, an interest in history or geography, or as souvenirs from a vacation. Collecting license plates is a fun hobby that the entire family -- all ages -- can enjoy. License plate prices range from very cheap to very expensive -- you can adjust your license plate collection to whatever fits your space and budget! Local, state, and national license plate clubs provide collectors a place to learn more about plates and buy, sell, or trade duplicates for plates they need. The Automobile License Plate Collectors Association (ALPCA), with almost 3,000 current members from 50 states and 19 countries, has been dedicated to the promotion of license plate collecting and research, the exchange of information and plates, and the fraternal benefits of sharing a common interest with others throughout the world for 60 years. Join Chuck Sakryd and Cyndi McCabe, active members of ALPCA, for a 'show-and-tell' closer look at this fascinating hobby!

NHIS 208C - Congress Whispers, Reservation Nations Endure

Ohio native Betty Wilson attended LCCC for two years before graduating from Kent State University with a Bachelors Degree in Fine and Professional Theater Arts; she later completed a Masters in Anthropology at the University of Cincinnati (research focus: public policy outcomes). Author of several public health newspaper articles, she also has published a book of short stories, Many Roads Taken. Her travels have included visits to forty-eight states and numerous American Indian reservations, plus a few wanderings off the beaten path in South America, Europe, and the Middle East. Congress Whispers, Reservation Nations Endure: A Century of Public Acts of Aggression, Confusion and Resolution explores a unique body of federal actions: legislation resting in near silence within the shadowy margins of all other U.S. public law. Although these laws apply most directly to less than 1.5% of our nation's citizenry'members of American Indian tribes'they affect all Americans in important but less obvious ways. These tribe-focused laws continue to frame New Millennium relationships between American Indian tribes and their state and federal counterparts. Through the enactment of these laws, Congress played a significant role in the transformation of tribal lands of the Civil War Era into western states, national parks, public lands, and American Indian reservations. This 315+ page eBook (published by Abbott Press) is available for preview on Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. The first session presents an overview of the first fifteen chapters, including the historical context and outcomes of key legislative acts of 1885-1950. Handouts include: copies of excerpts of the Congressional Record, chapter excerpts, and maps. This session includes group discussions, slide/PowerPoint presentations, and individual/team activities. The second session focuses on legislative acts and outcomes specific to the 1950-1990 time line. As with the first session, the process of presentation is interactive. Participants are encouraged (optional) to bring along a copy of any American History book.

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.

NREL 113C - Parallel Teachings of Jesus, Lao Tzu, Buddha, and Krishna

When we look past the religious and cultural phrasings, the philosophy of these unique teachers is remarkably similar. Was this ancient wisdom simply common knowledge passed along the Silk Road or did these teachings come from a higher source? If so, what are the ecumenical implications? Did Jesus travel and study in the East during his 'missing' years as some scholars suggest? We will also explore the concept that yoga and other Eastern practices are 'the science of connecting to God.'

NREL 125C - Religious Stained Glass Windows of Lorain County

Lorain County is blessed with an exciting array of religious windows in its religious institutions. Come along with us as we view, via a power-point presentation by David Simmer of Lorain County Sacred Landmarks, many of these beautiful windows. We will explore the different styles of windows - ranging from colored glass, biblical windows, to modern style windows. You will learn about our county's unique dome, symbolic, Tiffany, and recycled windows. We will even take a step down memory lane and view windows of closed religious edifices.
