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 explore skills and approaches for supporting wellbeing. Participants will be invited to participate in activities during the session, including:

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

These sessions are designed to be interactive, and participants will have opportunities to share their ideas and experiences. Facilitators aim to create a comfortable and welcoming environment to support sharing and learning, and all activities are optional. 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.

Contact us for more information about registration.

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:

  • Access to a computer, laptop, or tablet with the capability to watch and listen to videos and audio recordings.
  • Internet connection
  • Microphone and camera for zoom practice and feedback sessions. A headset is recommended.
  • Up to date browser including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, or Microsoft Edge. The course will not run with Internet Explorer
