Emotional resilience is an often untapped resource in all people. Building capacity for emotional resilience and psychological flexibility is essential for effective social work practice, while also protecting you against the impact of secondary trauma. Resilience training will allow you to do good work at less physical and emotional cost to you. These core skills can easily and effectively transfer to your work and clientele in a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical settings. This trauma informed, research-based workshop will introduce you to a resilience training model that incorporates basic principles of healthy human psychological functioning as well as other theories such as acceptance and commitment theory, shame resilience theory, mindfulness-based stress reduction, mindful self-compassion, and oppression theory. You will be able to recognize common strategies we use to discharge pain and shame, incorporate compassion practices, and implement strategies from various evidence-based resilience models.
