New course on parenting on the app Insight Timer

Here are reviews from some of the 1000 + students that have completed the course so far:

I enjoyed this course as a great grandmother to a 4 year old boy that I keep 5 days a week for long hours. I’ve been using your suggestions along the way. I related well to day 14 and I plan on following your suggestions around meals. The struggle is real! Thank you for this wonderful course. - Beverly

"Thank you for a great course. I finished it today. I need to come back to it once every 6 months. I am short tempered. Being a parent has changed me already. This course will take it even further. Thank you." - Leena Bondale

"Thank you for your wonderful courses" - Lou

"Lesson 3 was very helpful for me. I listened to it a second time and took notes. The way you talked about the emotional vulnerability of a child helps me understand more about myself. Thank you for that." - Joy

"Thanks Jan this is very good course to do, I hope more people can listen and learn from you." - Nada

Dear Jan, thank you so much for your wonderful, enlightened course ! I am completely with you. This is for me the most beautiful course on insight timer by far.

Lecture at Anders Sandvig's Medical Center, Lillehammer

It was very nice to receive another request to give the lecture on stress management for physicians. This time from the colleagues at Anders Sandvig's Medical Center in Lillehammer.
The lecture was well received and we had time to share views around some of the topics, like "Negative vs. Positive Stress", "Moral Stress" and "Mindfulness". Participants also learned simple techniques to reduce stress during work hours.
It is very rewarding to be able to share this information with colleagues. I thank you for the invitation!

Lecture at Gausdal Medical Center

In November 2020, I received a request from Gausdal Medical Center to give a lecture on stress management for physicians there. Medicine is a stressful profession. In Norway and many other countries, an increase in job stress, burnout and sick-leave is reported among doctors. It was an interesting meeting where I had the opportunity to introduce myself and to share my experiences and recommendations. We also talked a lot about the situation of many patients with stress-related ailments and about how a more comprehensive treatment that does not only address the physical symptoms could be useful and more effective.
Many thanks to colleagues for a pleasant meeting!

Workshop online for IOM Panama

Established in 1951, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN Migration Agency, is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners.
IOM is one of my previous clients from when I lived in Panama (2015-2018). This was a "mini workshop" of 3 hours divided into 2 sessions of 90 minutes each with one week intervals. It was given to a total of 48 participants divided into 4 groups. 2 groups were for "the beginners", ie. for those without previous experience in stress management and 2 groups were for "the advanced" who had participated in workshops with me earlier when I lived in Panama.
The sessions were held on Webex without any problems. After completing the course, the participants were given summaries of the content and relaxation exercises as help to be able to continue their stress management routines on their own.
