Fwd: ICALLD symposium-over-time - Save the date!

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: 


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.
