Event Details

Resilience and the Thriving Mindset: A New Paradigm for Connecting, Inspiring, Building and Empowering Others in Care, By Dr. Wayne Hammond

“True change starts with knowing the story of others and helping them to write the next chapters of their lives – not dictating it.” W. Hammond

Workshop Description:

This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of resilience and strengths-based care provision practice as well as the important steps towards nurturing the capacity of those in care to thrive.  The workshop will explore the more traditional understanding of care provision and intervention and invite a paradigm shift towards viewing and caring for complex individuals through the lens of “at potential” as opposed to as “at risk” as the starting point of positive change. Each participant will explore what it might mean to nurture a thriving mindset and its implication for how they professionally engage those in care in a process of self-discovery and exploration of their innate resilience and potential as the starting point for a participatory change process.  Participants will learn to identify the current mindset of those being served and effectively engage them with a strengths-based approach that prepares them to cope effectively with current challenges or health concerns, bounce back and learn from adversity, develop realistic goals and view themselves as at potential – not victims or just surviving.  The goal is to learn how to support others in ways that prepares them to embrace a thriving mindset - confident, competent, motivated and empowered to realize their own personal goals and aspirations.
