Extension Lunch and Learn Series: Is it Time to Focus on the Positive?

University of Wisconsin Madison – Division of Extension educators will be offering an online six-session lunch and learn opportunity this spring which focuses on the good. Beginning Tuesday May 14, the sessions will meet from noon to 1:00 PM, each Tuesday through June 18, 2024. 

WeCOPE is an evidence-based program that helps adults cope with life stress by connecting with positive emotions. This program has been shown to increase positive feelings, reduce stress, and improve health behaviors in randomized trials. 

WeCOPE is based on the work of Dr. Judith Moskowitz. Even in the context of serious life stress, positive emotions can and do occur and have positive adaptive consequences.  The course includes simple assignments for participants to complete between sessions. Materials and the class are free thanks to SAMHSA ROTA Grant #1H79TI083277-01. 

This class can be found by scrolling to the state class listing on the UW Extension Health and Wellbeing page, or by using this link: Materials can be picked up in Eau Claire or Dunn County’s Extension Office. Details, including the Zoom link, will be provided in an email before the class starts.
