Enhancing resilience is important for individuals, families, and communities to be able to withstand challenges and bounce back from adversity. Resilience Enhancement and Leadership Model (REALM) offers a set of skills essential for building capacity for resilience in three main areas: individual, interpersonal, and organizational. REALM provides participants with tools and techniques for self-regulation, needs satisfaction, compassionate communication, trust building, and value-based leadership. This course draws on empirically supported programs, to include Community Resiliency Model (Trauma Resource Institute), Stress Management and Resilience Training (Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine), and Mindful Self-Compassion (Center for Mindful Self-Compassion) as well as research-based practices from the Gottman Institute and Insight Coaching. Standing on the five pillars of resilience –Self Awareness, Mindfulness, Self-Care, Positive Relationships, and Purpose – REALM presents a great opportunity for clinicians, educators, first responders, and community leaders to strengthen their own resilience skills and teach them to those they serve.
This is a non-interactive, self-study course.
Instruction consists of 3 hours of video instruction and a post-test.
From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
Upon completion of this training, professionals will be able to do the following:
- Explain the stress response and the relaxation response
- Assess the role of safety, connection, and satisfaction in interpersonal wellness
- Discuss factors contributing to building trust and living in accord to your core values
