Interested in Learning About Psychology in the Workplace?
I am currently teaching a class at Chemeketa Community College on this important subject.  Workplace conflict, sometimes violent conflict, makes it more important now than ever to understand each other and use successful interpersonal skills in the workplace. If you are interested in this subject, please take a look at the Chemeketa catalog, or contact me to discuss private seminars for your workplace.
