Spring is the time for rebirth and new beginnings! As we look around, we can observe nature around us awakening after a long winter sleep. A true sign of resilience. At Origins, we have been lucky enough to create a space for growth and learning for both groups and individuals who work towards creating environments of healing and resilience over the winter months.
After completing the first round of The Resilience Champion Certificate of 2018, we have 23 graduates putting their action plans to work. Some settings that were chosen included both personal and professional environments: organizations, classrooms, schools, community, family, and even districts and cities. Partnerships were forged to support the awareness-building and culture shift towards trauma-informed and resilience practices outside of one setting into another- school with health care providers, faith-based groups with families, and local governments with advocacy groups. When working to change systems, a cross-sector approach to finding solutions is key, whether it's large or small!

"This training has encouraged me to self-reflect and realize the experiences that I bring into the classroom have an equal effect as those that the students come in with. This is a process that has to be focused on relationships, communication, and connections with students, families, and staff. As a result of this course and other trauma trainings that we are being introduced to, there have been many conversations that have produced positive results among my colleagues and within my classroom among my students."

" I wish that our whole district could take this course. It really helped to remind me to keep really looking at the student and to not be discouraged and instead figure out different ways to help that student. Thank you for all that you guys have done for us!!! I really appreciate it. I have also really enjoyed reading all the other participants discussions as well. Very helpful as well as informative."
~Julie Langer, CA

This 6-week course utilizes a series of online sessions to teach the key concepts of taking a resilience-building and trauma-informed approach with the goal of overcoming the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences and other sources of trauma. The topics apply to both personal and professional settings and can be used in a variety of environments including education, social work, law enforcement, administration, church, community groups, advocacy, families, the list goes on and on…
Each week includes a self-paced online learning session (approximately 30-45 minutes) that includes video and discussion posts. We also offer opportunities to meet with a resilience coach one-on-one throughout the course. Each session covers content and incorporates activities and practical tools to support the everyday application of resilience practices. We also share concrete, cross-sector examples of interventions that have worked and real-life stories of resilience.
Through a combination of instructional, interactive, and experiential learning processes, Champions will leave with their own, personalized, translation of how to lead, in their setting, on a path to resilience.
