We Are Resilient™ Healthcare Training – Resilience Circle Weekly Series (5 of 6)
March 18, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Resilience Circles are 6 (1-hour) weekly sessions which take place each Thursday, beginning February 18th, and offer a more in-depth experience with time for reflection and support from peers.
|Do you feel your stress rising, especially as COVID and political disturbances are raging?
|We Are Resilient™ is a practical hands-on approach to strengthening resilience and reducing stress. We can all benefit from recognizing what gets in the way of our resilience and learning how to practice these simple skills which promote it.
|We Are Resilient™ is particularly helpful for healthcare providers and staff to be more comfortable addressing ACEs, trauma and providing trauma-informed care. The training helps providers manage their own vicarious trauma and delivers anticipatory guidance to support patients/caregivers in strengthening their own resilience skills.
