Upcoming Workshop: What is Resilience?
Building a Resilient Community is our theme for the year, and understanding "resilience" is the first step towards doing so. Join us on Wednesday, January 26 at 12PM, for the first in a series of monthly workshops on Building Personal and Community Resilience. The presentation is a replay of last year’s workshop, followed by a live discussion with participants facilitated by VOICES staff.
This workshop explores a variety of practices to help to identify and manage stress, face daily challenges, and build more compassionate relationships. Participants will consider the context of current events and the ability to cope, and will build answers to the following questions: How does the role of resilience help to manage the negative effects? Are people born resilient? Can resilience be learned and developed?
This is the first in a series of five workshops that will be held on the first Thursday of each month. The presentation is facilitated by Katherine Manners and Carolina Bautista-Velez, OVC consultants, two of the foremost authorities with decades of experience in trauma-informed practices to promote resilience.
