Resilient Families at Home: A Live Workshop For Parents & Teachers with Dr. Christopher Willard

A Special Online Fundraising Event with Dr. Chris Willard

In these unprecedented times many educators–and the families and students they support–are struggling with the stresses of isolation and disruption to their lives.

These are not ordinary times. Yet, with this crisis also comes an opportunity for post-traumatic growth that invites the possibility to strengthen us as individuals and as communities when we effectively apply mindfulness and other contemplative strategies to build more resilience. While everyone faces unique challenges at this moment, we will come together to explore what is universal. Together, we will explore time-tested principles and strategies, grounded in research, that will support us and the communities we serve.

Learn Practical Strategies

At this live 90-minute event, participants will learn tools to strengthen resilience and turn a challenging time into a period of personal and collective growth.

  • Learn practical strategies to promote wellness and learning with your children, students and community
  • Better understand the science of post-traumatic growth
  • Try mindfulness-based resilience practices for mind, body, and spirit

This event is a fundraiser for Calmer Choice. Your generosity helps our nonprofit stay afloat during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your support.
