Communicating with Farmers Under Stress

Thursday, June 4, 2020     10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Numerous factors cause stress for farmers and their families including financial problems, price and marketing uncertainties, farm transfer issues, production challenges and more. Especially during this time.

You want to help, but maybe are not sure what to say or do. Or maybe you find yourself having to deliver difficult news to farmers. This workshop will help you recognize and respond when you suspect a farmer or farm family member might need help.

• Build awareness around potentially stressful conditions affecting some farmers.

  • Learn stress triggers, identify signs of stress and review helpful techniques for responding.
  • Learn techniques for identifying, approaching and working with farmers who may not cope with stress effectively.
  • Learn where to go for additional help.
