Training session helps improve memory

Citizens4Community (C4C), in partnership with Happy Brain Science, is offering a free training called “Remember This! The Science of Learning and Memory” on January 12, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., at the Sisters Fire Hall Community Room.

The session is open to the public; anyone living in, working in, or visiting Sisters Country is welcome to attend. While a Zoom link will be provided to those unable to attend in person—see registration information below—the session is designed for an in-person audience, and the experience will be much better in the room.

Have you ever walked into a room and wondered why you went in there? You are not alone! Human memory is far from perfect. Forgetting can make anything we are trying to do in life harder. Fortunately, science suggests solutions. Peer-reviewed research can guide us to techniques that can work for anyone, to help you remember anything from a person’s name to why you walked into a room.

“Building capacity in various organizations and individuals is part of C4C’s mission to build a connected community through collaboration,” said Josie Newport, director of C4C. “We are delighted to be able to offer this training for free to the residents and visitors of Sisters Country.”

Jane Paxson, president of the C4C board, said, “Scott Crabtree previously delivered a session called “The Science of Being Happy and Productive at Work and In Life” in partnership with C4C, and it was very well received. That session went so well, we invited Scott to join the board of C4C. And now as a member of the board, Scott is willing and able to deliver more free sessions for Sisters Country. Organizations such as DreamWorks, Google, NBC, and The National Park Service hire Scott over and over; we are fortunate to be able to offer his sessions to anyone in Sisters Country. I am looking forward to Scott’s session for my own benefit!”

“The science of happiness is clear: the most important factor in our well-being is the quality of our relationships. So, I was eager to partner with C4C, because they focus on building a connected community here in Sisters Country,” said Crabtree.
