The Department of State held workshops for agency employees struggling with the emotional stress of the Trump Transition in December, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
The workshop, titled, “The Emotional Transition: Managing the Stress of Change,” were advertised in an agency-wide email, and employees were allowed to dedicate work time to the hour-long sessions. The sessions were held Dec. 8 and Dec. 14, a month after President-elect Donald Trump defeated former State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton in the presidential race.
“Change is an inevitable part of the human experience,” an email invitation for the workshop said, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “We can become paralyzed by fear or allow the experience of change to propel us closer to self-actualization.”
“Our perspective determines our outcome,” the State Department continued. “This seminar is designed to discuss the impact of change; the emotional cycles some people experience when confronted with change, and tools to effectively manage the stress of change.”
