Reconnect for Resilience™ offers a set of easy-to-use tools to stay well in the face of adversity. In this 14-hour class,
participants learn what happens to our brains and bodies when we are stressed, and are given tools to stay healthy,
connected, and resilient during tough times.
This trauma-informed and resiliency-focused program teaches about the biological effects of stress and promotes
a culture of resilience in homes, schools, organizations, and communities. Using a strengths-based, somatic approach,
it then introduces practical strategies that can be used to self-regulate, restore self-compassion, and re-connect to
others. Our simple, teachable format is designed for anyone to learn and share, and the strategies we teach can
help people of all ages and backgrounds. Through demonstrations and group practice, participants learn how to use these tools for themselves and with others. When these tools are practiced regularly, they can provide relief for individuals, caregivers, educators, and other helping professionals who can then pass them on to
their friends, families, or the people they serve.
