The Art of Resilience

A self-directed training course for facilitators and practitioners to help infuse creativity, empowerment and personal development into their work with children and youth. 

Connected. Creative. Conscious.

Working with kids isn’t always fun and games! As facilitators and practitioners you may question the real impact you have on the kids you work with. Perhaps you notice they are apathetic or unengaged. Maybe you spend so much time on behavioural management that you can't ever seem to get to the good stuff. I know you genuinely want to empower all of your clients/participants with concrete strategies that will help them live in the most confident expression of themselves. You want to learn how you can  infuse creativity into your practice but lack the inspiration, resources and arts-based facilitation skills to make it happen. And with the current demands of your job, you just don't have the time and energy to source empowering activities that you can implement immediately.

Don't worry… I got you! 

I know that you are ready to feel inspired and more importantly, EQUIPPED to create a deep, meaningful positive change with the kids you work with. 

Say no more... I'm ready!

The Art of Resilience is for facilitators and practitioners who: 

  • are interested in learning more about how the creative process can build resilience. 
  • value personal development topics like emotional regulation, mindfulness, positive self talk, mindset and goal setting 
  • want to use creativity in their practice but feel like they don't have artistic skills 
  • want to boost each child's sense of self awareness and self worth in an environment of trust and acceptance
  • desire a toolkit of arts-based empowerment activities that can be implemented right away

This course will allow you to: 

  • Initiate dynamic, creative experiences that bring out the best in the kids you work with. 
  • Mitigate behavioral management so you can focus on doing what you love.
  • Strengthen the relationship between you and your participants/clients so you can go deeper and do more. 
  • Lead with confidence in an environment of empathy, trust and acceptance.
  • Instill empowering, resilience-boosting strategies that kids can use forever!
