About this event: 

Bouncing Back - How to Restore and Reset

This session will invite participants to identify what allows them to regenerate and refuel. Using new findings in neuroscience, we will introduce participants to activities that they can incorporate in daily life to be more alert and focused and tools to switch off for much needed recuperation time. Topics discussed:

- Understanding the basics of psychological resilience

- The Window of Tolerance Framework (WTF)

- How to carve out healthy restorative time

- Creating social support at home and at work

- Identifying your zones of control and influence

About the presenter:

Diana Tikasz has worked in the teaching and health care sector for the past 29 years. Her helping work began as an early childhood educator, nurturing children and their families to reach their fullest potential. This work developed into a desire to do trauma-focused work.

Over the course of her career she has worked in emergency department crisis teams, coordinated hospital based sexual assault/domestic violence treatment programs, which involved assisting individuals experiencing a current crisis, counselling those who have been traumatized by violence, and teaching a variety of other professionals how to do this work effectively while staying healthy themselves

Seating is limited for this event! Registration is now open!
