    A Guided Visit to the Exhibition
    Sensation and Sensuality:
    Rubens and his Legacy

    Join us on Saturday, October 4th for a guided visit of the fabulous exhibition Sensation and Sensuality: Rubens and his Legacy.

    Rubens was the Quentin Tarantino of his day, making Flanders one of the world’s foremost regions for painting. The Flemish master-painter developed his own personal style, crafting scenes that exuded lust and were marked by violence, as well as compassion and elegance. These themes inspired artists all over the world for many centuries to come. In this unique exhibition by BOZAR, in collaboration with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Royal Academy of Arts in London, you can rediscover the work of this indomitable genius that has withstood the test of time as well as that of his heirs. You can also see canvases by Van Dyck, Watteau, Delacroix, Manet and Kokoschka as well as engravings by Rembrandt and Picasso. 

    Our guide will be once again Lieve De Jonghe.

    Please note that this visit is limited to 15 people and is a 'Members Priority' event. Non-members will be accepted after September 24 on a ‘space available’ basis.

    The Canadian Club of Belgium and
    the American Club of Brussels
    welcome YOU in our Book Club
    on the second Wednesday of the month
    from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
    (CCB and ACB members only)

    We are taking a different approach this time. We are asking YOU to present to us a book of YOUR choice that YOU have read and that YOU have really enjoyed. This gives all members, who are passionate about reading, a chance to read and discuss different genres of literature.

    Momentarily, the Book Club is being hosted at Geneviève’s place in Auderghem (avenue des Nénuphars 11 - ground floor - phone 02/660.57.65).

    If you have not read the book to be discussed or if you find a way to come just at the last minute, don’t hesitate to come anyway since the evening is convivial as well as interesting.

    Here is our “calendar”:

    October 8 – presented by Geneviève Bergiers D.C.:
    Annabel written by Kathleen Winter
    The story of an intersex child born in a remote Labrador village ... What identification will this child develop in that environment? This is a sophisticated but also a very human and impressive novel!

    November 12 – presented by Kim Masiero:
    The Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth written by Chris Hadfield
    What does it take to get “things” done the best possible way, even in our own daily routine to eventually and to hopefully reach top results and top satisfaction ? A fabulous book written by a Canadian “icon”!

    December 10 – your suggestions for a book still possible

    January 14 – your suggestions for a book still possible

    Best to YOU in the meantime.

    Kim Masiero & Geneviève Bergiers D.C.

    Community Help Service organises
    Burnout Conference

    To mark its 45th anniversary year, the Community Help Service (CHS) is holding a conference on Friday 10 October 2014 on the topical subject of burnout – a state of mental and physical ex- haustion induced by stress. The conference will be held between 17.00 - 21:00, on the campus of the International School of Brussels, Kattenberg 19, 1170 Brussels. The event is free of charge (donations are welcome), and the conference language will be English.

    A pioneering new Belgian law that came into effect this month requires all enterprises operating on Belgian territory to take preventive action against the “psycho-social risks” related to work stress. This is raising questions over whether European employers are doing enough to prevent their employees from succumbing to burnout.

    The conference will be directly helpful to those managing stress reduction in the workplace, whether from a human resource, therapeutic or personal standpoint. Discussion will focus onidentifying best practices for preventing and/or treating burnout. Special emphasis will be placed on the expat community.

    On the topic, Dr. Pomerantz, Clinical Director of CHS, stated: ‘Burnout is a complex phenomenon: Burnout is real, it is there, it is notimaginary. However, if we look at the different classifications (ICD, DSM), burnout has not yet been qualified as a psychiatric syndrome’; to which he added‘If a workload is structured according to people’s sensitivities, capacities and competences, then you could prevent most burnout cases’.

    Programme
    • Drs. Harry Pomerantz, Clinical Director of Community Help Service (CHS) will open the conference.
    • Professor Dr. Jonathan Chick, MD, Medical Director of Castle Craig Hospital will give the keynote address, with regards to burnout and addiction.
    • Bob Thomas, MA, Psychotherapist CM, Hermes Consulting will discuss warning signs and preven- tative action of burnout.
    • Dirk Antonissen, MA, Chief Executive Officer of ISW Limits and Inge Van den Brande, PhD, Senior Account & ProjectManager, ISW Limits will focus on stress prevention in organisations: from a re- active, single-focussed approach to proactive, integrated wellbeing programs. They will cover the various tools that are available: Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), stress management, online tools, psychosocial risk assessment.
    • Lisa Classen, MA, Clinical Psychologist, and Jane Sudlow, MA, Psychotherapist, both members of the CHS Clinical Team, will present clinical vignettes.

    A Guided Visit to
    Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition


    Join us on Sunday, October 19th for a guided visit of the unique exhibition, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition.

    This famous exhibition puts on display for the first time in Belgium the authentic artifacts dredged from the wreck of the famous ship. The delicate perfume vials, the porcelain carrying the logo of the White Star Line and many other items recreate a lost era and testify to all of the lives that were lost or have been ramshackled by one of the biggest disasters at sea in modern history.

    Only 687 persons, out of 2,228 passengers and crew members on board the Titanic, survived. Seven of them were Belgian. You will discover the stories of the Belgians on board, learn about the other passengers, admire the real life iceberg installed in the exhibition and come closer to that fatal night.
     
    Please note that this visit is limited to 25 people.
