COVID-19 Update from Mission: Empowerment!

We have been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). The situation and the response from governments and organizations is evolving rapidly.

The safety and well-being of our Mission: Empowerment! community and staff, our local community and our global community remains our top priority.

At this time, we have made the decision to cancel all of our in-person workshops for our Spring season.  Some we have rescheduled for a later date and others we are offering as an online live streamed event.  Here is what is happening for each of the Spring workshops:

  • The “Daring Greatly ™” workshop scheduled for April 3rd has been rescheduled to October 23, 2020.
  • The "CBT for Insomnia" workshop scheduled for April 24th is now being offered as an online live streamed event on the same date.
  • The "Working with Survivors of Complex & Developmental Trauma" workshop scheduled for May 4-5, 2020 has been rescheduled to May 3-4, 2021.
  • ​The "Adult Attachment in Clinical Practice" workshop scheduled for June 4-5, 2020 has been rescheduled to November 30-December 1, 2020.
  • ​The "Emotion-Focused Family Therapy" workshop scheduled for June 18-19, 2020 is now being offered as an online live streamed event on the same dates.
  • The “Fierce Self-Compassion” workshop scheduled for May 25th has been rescheduled to November 19, 2020.

​Everyone registered for the above workshops was contacted and given the option to transfer their registration to the rescheduled event or to receive a full refund or credit.

At this point in time we have no plans to cancel or postpone our fall events and we are hopeful that the situation will be much better by then, but we will continue to monitor the situation, keep you informed, and make provisions as necessary to address any changes needed to ensure the safety of our workshop participants.  ​Updates will be posted here at and registered attendees will be provided updates via email.  Rest assured that it has always been our policy that if an event is cancelled by us all attendees are eligible for a full refund.

As for our staff, we have always operated as a virtual office so rest assured we are all safely at home.

We look forward to welcoming you at future events when it is safe to do so.  In the mean time, take care and stay safe.
