Free virtual workshop to encourage mental balance at work

“Don’t forget your Yang”: Christina MacLean

STRATFORD – Oct. 29, 2021 – In these uncertain pandemic times and with the hectic Christmas season coming down the pike, it is understandable if business, co-op and organizational leaders are experiencing stress beyond normal levels. The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the Wellington Rural Action Centre want to offer them some encouragement and hope through a free virtual workshop in French, via Zoom, with Acadian psychologist Christina MacLean, M.A., on Thursday, Nov. 25, from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

The title of the workshop will be “Don’t forget your Yang: Questions and tips to encourage balance”. It will include suggestions for preventing stress buildup as well as ways to regain and maintain calm.

“Life is complex, and the pandemic has had an impact on many levels,” says MacLean. “Take the time to attend this session to better recognize the effects of stress, reflect on scientific approaches to healthy habits, and determine how you might improve your personal and professional life.”


MacLean has over 20 years of experience in psychology-related fields. She began by teaching at the university level and then worked for 14 years in mental health. Since 2015, she has been a school psychologist with the Public Schools Branch. She also has several years of experience in private practice and has spent hundreds of hours training in various aspects of psychology.

Originally from the Evangeline area and now living in Stratford, MacLean is the mother of two children. In her personal and professional life, she understands the importance of holistic mental health practices. Some people may recognize her as a singer from the folk group Chiquésa and a former dinner-theatre show performer.

Anyone interested in attending is asked to register by contacting Josée Ouellette at (902) 854-3439, ext. 228, or by Tuesday, Nov. 23. The Zoom link will then be sent to registrants.
