Resilience Training: Psychological Survival Skills for Before, During and After Crises – June 28th – 29th, 2022 (8 a.m. – 4 p.m.)

Description: Conditions of extreme stress require extraordinary counter-measures. Resilience training helps us be at our best at all times, especially tough times. Specifically, resilience training helps us prevent and recover from stress-related conditions (including PTSD, suicide, depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, problem anger, sleep and relationship problems)—while optimizing mental well-being and performance under pressure. Each of us has a great need to learn the skills of resilience, and then teach these skills to others. Practical evidence-based and theory-driven resilience principles and skills will be explored. Coping skills taught in traditional clinical, elite training, and positive psychology settings will be explained—including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence. (2– Day Course; Max Participants: 24)
