Research on the effects of childhood trauma (including the recent COVID pandemic) illustrates the importance of resilience as a life skill for overcoming adversity and facing new obstacles. Resilience (also known as psychological flexibility) can be developed throughout life using a process called Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). Using ACT and a visual process called The ACT Matrix, individuals can develop key skills in self-awareness, self-regulation, perspective-taking, empathy, problem-solving, and relationship building – the core ingredients for resilience.

 

This training is designed to help equip educators, parents, and leaders with a simple, sustainable, and scalable process to promote psychological flexibility and resilience. Please join us and explore how you can use this tool for building resilience with children, yourself, or within your organization.

We have experienced a stranglehold of sorts during this pandemic, and we have all had to adapt to the swift change of circumstances experiencing traumas together on an individual level. Forced to slow down, stay at home, and isolate, affecting unparalleled mental wellness concerns. Our teachers, students, and families have experienced record high micro-traumas triggering dysregulation and fear.

 

To be whole is to be healthy as we are bouncing back, this session is an opportunity for teachers, paras, counselors, and family service professionals from all disciplines to identify practical strategies that help with easily triggered dysregulation. We all want to be in a high-trust environment. Participants will leave with strategies that help dysregulation, build trust, and grow connections.

This is an interactive experience, energizing and informative.  Come prepared to participate in a conversation and an experience worth remembering. Interactive experiences have more impact because people learn by doing. Come refill your bucket!
