Why you should attend
In a world filled with growing responsibilities both at work and in the home, individuals are finding increasing challenge in practicing life management skills. A recent survey noted that more than 50% of workers spend more than 40 hours a week at work. Many are overworked and overextended while trying to earn a good living and take care of self and others.
With so much stress and adversity in today’s society, it seems almost impossible to make headway, and continue to grow and thrive. More people are seeking mental health services, attending workshops on mindfulness, exercising, and trying to stay healthy in the interest of finding and maintaining balance. Often, these measures to "control" or maintain balance fail to take hold, especially when they are ended prematurely.
Finding stress that cannot be managed easily isn’t too tough in our world these days. The idea that stress can and should be conquered or completely mastered is a misnomer that mass media provides to make it even more difficult to overcome that which is already challenging enough in your busy and stressful life. Yes, it is a cycle that is very hard to break.
Integrative Resilience is a new idea that is changing old ideas comprised of behavior cycles that have long kept people in the same dark and negative cycle of failing to adequately and realistically manage one's stress and overall life.
This training aims to establish the basic foundation for building a solid and long term effective program for sustainable life management and growth, both in your personal and professional life. Whether you are in the business of healthcare, education, finance, trade, sales, skilled labor, stay at home caregiver, or any type of work that offers a challenge to balance and wellness, you should not miss this important training!
