The interactive hour-long session will discuss Thriving in Action, a unique initiative now used in over 30 institutions across Canada:
Thriving in Action: A Flourishing Program That's Flourished
December 8, 2020 from 10-11 p.m. (GMT)
Zoom link: https://ryerson.zoom.us/j/99724199639
In this uplifting, experiential session, ICALLD participants will be introduced to Ryerson University's Thriving in Action (TiA) program, a unique mind-body-heart-spirit intervention for struggling students. TiA's curriculum blends Positive Psychology, CBT, mindfulness, somatic traditions, and holistic learning strategies. In TiA, we have created a semester-long, equity-driven, non-prescriptive, upstream, health-promoting, early alert, pre-probation, midstream transition & retention initiative.
Join Dr. Diana Brecher and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer to
- learn more about TiA,
- explore the Canadian academic and wellbeing landscape,
- hear from other Canadian educators implementing TiA,
- expand your own repertoire of resilience practices, and
- walk away with a sense of community and hope.
