The Crisis Centre of BC’s Resilience and Wellness Training Modules

Posted by & filed under News.

 

In these 6 resilience and wellness training modules, participants will learn evidence-based mindfulness tools for building resilience, managing stress, preventing burnout, and supporting well-being.

Each 50 to 60-minute module is designed to be a stand-alone training so that you can join the modules that resonate with you.

Each module explores a theme related to emotional well-being, including building a foundation of what mindfulness is, exploring related science, and introducing practices to observe thoughts and emotions, manage reactivity, the negativity bias, and harness the science of happiness.

Participants are encouraged to take the training live but can learn at their own pace by watching the recordings and studying a copy of the presentations that will be made available for two weeks after each module.

Simple, guided practices are provided each week and participants are encouraged to investigate and integrate them into daily life during and following the training.
