Event Information
Reconnect for Resilience™ offers participants a set of practical strategies to promote wellbeing in the face of ongoing stress or adversity. Our simple, easy to understand tools are designed to support people of any age, education, or background. In this class, participants learn about the neuroscience of stress and trauma, and are given an “owner’s manual to the body’s threat and safety management system.”

Developed as a response to the public health crisis of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), Reconnect for Resilience™ teaches participants simple tools for self-regulation and co-regulation, and supports social emotional learning for all ages. Through demonstrations and group practice, participants learn to apply resiliency tools to: Reconnect with their body's natural capacity to reset the nervous system after it has been thrown out of balance by stress and trauma; Reconnect with their ability to reduce shame through self-compassion; and Reconnect with their family and community with a clear mind and balanced nervous system.

The two-day Reconnect for Resilience™ training includes:
Day 1: Learn the foundations of neuroscience and emotional regulation resiliency tools, observe demonstrations, and practice (7 hours)
Day 2: Learn the Restore Self-compassion tool, observe demonstrations, and participate in supervised practice groups (7 hours)
Upon successful completion, participants will be able to use the tools with community residents, students, and others, as well as for themselves for self-care.
