Creating A Wellness Mindset

Duration: 1 hour

Learn the characteristics needed for a wellness mindset. A sense of well-being is the integration of body, mind and spirit; and the appreciation that everything we do, think, feel, and believe has an impact on our health. This presentation provides a framework for how to create a ‘wellness mindset’ that will support the practice of continuous self-care.

Cultivating a Culture of Belonging & Well-being

Duration: 1 hour

Creating a culture of belonging supports those that do not feel a sense of belonging – be at their schools, places of employment, home or within their communities. Motivation is driven by the sense that we matter and our contributions add, and not subtract, to the world around us. A culture of belonging looks for ways we are similar rather than how we are different.

Cultivating Resiliency

Duration: 1 hour

Participants will have an opportunity to explore self-care and wellness from a strengths-based perspective, including understanding stressors, building resiliency and self-compassion, and managing change.

Developing a Trauma-Informed Approach

Duration: 1 hour

To ensure the best possible health outcomes, all care — in all organizational settings — must address trauma in a safe and sensitive way. A trauma-informed approach can be implemented in any type of service setting or organization and is distinct from trauma-specific interventions.

Grief: The Most Universal of All Feelings

Duration: 1 hour

This presentation will explore the expressions of grief and loss and why supporting the grieving process will ensure that grief is not categorized as a disease but an essential part of our wholeness as human beings and the precursor for healing. We will also look at when grief becomes complicated and a mental health concern.

Mind-Body Health & Healing

Duration: 1 hour

For those of us under chronic stress or managing our mental health its helpful to be aware of emotions and attend to them quickly. Tending to them quickly ensures we will not carry them with us throughout the day, week, month and for some of us years. Taking a leadership role over our thoughts will ensure our emotions don’t have a life of their own.

Self-Compassion: A Tool for Mental Health

Duration: 1 hour

Focusing on developing our compassion creates positive effects on both our brains and our immune systems. Studies of evolution show we are biologically designed to respond well to being cared for and treated kindly. The practice of compassion and self-compassion require being engaged and awake to our life
