Resilience is not a buzzword, it’s an actionable concept that every family support professional and paraprofessional needs to understand for managing stress and avoiding burnout.

The R2 Resilience Program® — developed by Dr. Michael Unger and colleagues at the Resilience Research Centre in Nova Scotia — is a simple research-based framework that helps identify and strengthen protective factors that can build stamina.

This lunchtime series will begin with an introduction of the R2 Resilience Program® and its 52 protective factors. Participants will be asked to complete two resilience self-assessments and will create a personal resource map identifying areas of strength and areas for improvement. The three follow-up sessions are based on participants’ identification of protective factors that they would like to learn more about. Integrating small group work and dialogue, these follow-up sessions will further develop understanding of how to build resilience to enhance overall well-being.
