Finding Your Fun Class Offered at UW-River Falls

Embrace the process of personal growth and enhance your fun, play and joy in the New Year through a University of Wisconsin-River Falls course designed especially for women. Through readings, small group discussions, and individual reflection, participants will explore models on positive psychology and better understand how their life experiences may lead to personal and professional growth.

"Women of all ages and experiences will find this to be a rewarding and enjoyable three-day session," said instructor Professor Jennifer Berna, a coordinator of health education in the UW-River Falls Health and Human Performance Department

The course, "Finding Your Fun: Positive Psychology Trends," is offered through the College of Education and Professional Studies and the College of Arts and Sciences. The course would benefit current or future teachers; health professionals; all women at turning points in their lives; or anyone interested in growing stronger and having fun in life.

The class will meet on the UW-RF campus on Fridays, Jan. 9 and 16, from 6-9:30 p.m., and Saturday, Jan. 17, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Participants can take the course for one undergraduate credit or as a noncredit option. For those who want to receive college credit, the tuition is $168 for Wisconsin residents and $186 for Minnesota residents with reciprocity. For those interested in taking the class just for their own personal enrichment, the fee is $75.

Berna has a doctorate in adult and continuing education with an emphasis on life transitions and an interest in successfully maneuvering turning points in our lifespan. She also holds a master's degree in health education with an emphasis in stress management. She has conducted many seminars and adult continuing education classes focusing on health-promoting ways of living, particularly for women.
