Strategies for Well-Being

Strategies for Well-Being:

  4 x 90 minute webinars

 Any individual whose lived experience exposes them to pressure and interpersonal interactions that can lead to compassion fatigue, burnout, moral distress, or trauma.

CCMI’s Strategies for Well-being program works with individuals to address the impacts of distress, compassion fatigue, burnout and secondary trauma. Each virtual session is a collaborative effort, with the facilitator offering approaches and skills to create a supportive environment to learn and share. Examples of topics and skills might be:

  • Mindfulness exercises
  • Self-exploration activities
  • Guided imagery
  • Gratitude practices

In-between sessions participants reflect on what they have discussed and learned in preparation for the next session.

These sessions can accommodate 12 participants per group. We ask that participants commit to attending all 4 sessions.

This is an interactive course that is designed for participants who want to consider practical applications to their life and work. CCMI uses learner-centred, performance-based, and trauma-informed approaches.

The facilitator and participants will collaborate to determine which topics to explore and prioritize throughout the 4 sessions, and facilitators will introduce activities accordingly.

Examples of activity objectives include:

  • Increase presence and self-awareness
  • Support nervous system regulation
  • Acknowledge the experiences you carry.
  • Evaluate self-care in different dimensions of your life.
  • Identify self-care activities
  • Explore values, beliefs, experiences, strengths, and boundaries.
  • Evaluate different mechanisms for coping with stress.
  • Explore how self-talk and beliefs influence health and wellness.
  • Identify your community.
  • Explore ways that we are connected to others.
  • Create an action plan to get started in forming a new habit or working towards a personal goal.

In order to complete this course, participants will need:
