CD#1--Parenting with Humor (Is It Possible?)
Can you raise a responsible human being using optimism, joy, and humor--without awfulizing and catastrophizing? By developing a family mission statement and instilling values instead of making threats, you can experience the satisfaction and happiness of a family that laughs together and supports each other.
CD#2--How to Prevent Hardening of the Attitude: Reducing Stress in the Workplace
Discover how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can affect work performance, interpersonal relationships, personal and professional success, and self-worth. When you integrate Loretta's "Ten Little Commitments" into your work environment, you can increase productivity, lift morale, and reduce down time caused by stress and poor attitude.
CD#3--Love, Laughter, and Lasagna: A Recipe for a Positive Outlook
In this lecture, aimed at those of us who are sick of being a "human doing" instead of a human being, Loretta elicits the past to reframe the present. She reveals the ingredients necessary to transform your frantic pace into a simpler lifestyle that honors family, friends, a sense of community, and yourself--it's a recipe for a positive outlook.
CD#4--Find the Bless in the Mess
On this irreverent and whimsical CD, Loretta reminds her audience that when you worry about "stuff that doesn't make sense," and get stressed out by the least important things, you miss valuable opportunities to celebrate what you do have "Life is a sitcom...and one of the most divine things you can encroach upon is the concept that you are the joke."
