Training Overview Description

These are strange and frightening times. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted daily life in profound ways. An economic recession, political strife, and the toxic impacts of racism weigh heavily on many. And those of us who work in the “helping professions” have the honor and the burden of caring for others in the midst of all these challenges. More than ever, we need the skills and the relationships that help us to be resilient. Resilience is about making it through hard times with the least suffering and the greatest well-being possible. In this 2-part training (10 hours total, including breaks), we will explore strategies for building up our resilience as we manage the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and associated challenges. Topics we will cover include reconnecting with values, meaning, and purpose; finding self-compassion during tough times; reinforcing helpful ways of thinking; re-establishing self-care practices; and maintaining motivation and morale.

This training will be provided online in the interest of health and safety. Learning will include lecture, PowerPoint slides, small-group and large-group discussions, experiential activities, and orientation to tools and activities you may use on your own after the training. Please come ready to jump in and interact!
