Amidst employees in tears following the election of Donald Trump,
the Environmental Protection Agency is offering counseling sessions on
“dealing with change.”
Axios obtained slides from one of the 45-minute seminars, entitled, “Feeling pressured? Worried about change at EPA?”
Topics included “How to deal with change,” “How do you keep your
composure and make better decisions under pressure?” “How can you spend
your energy more wisely—and have more as a result?” and “How do you
recognize and eliminate harmful habits that cause you stress?”
The agency’s Employee Counseling and Assistance Program held the
sessions, which also covered “How can you stop yourself from getting
hurt and/or angry?”
A spokesperson for the EPA told Axios that the counseling was part of
regular training available to employees, and that “dealing with change”
was “just one of the more recent ones that were offered.”
EPA employees are still coming to work in tears more than two months after Trump’s victory.
It appears not all EPA employees are distraught that a Republican is
now in the White House. One EPA employee reached out to the Washington Free Beacon to
say he disagrees with the coworkers he has witnessed crying at work,
saying, “There’s at least one EPA employee who’s absolutely thrilled to
have Trump in office.”
Thank You Ms Harrington and Free Beacon.
