Resiliency for People with Neurologic Illness* is a live-online program of six weekly 60-minute classes. In each class, you will learn evidence-based skills to help make your self-care sustainable.

Teaching methods include brief lecture periods mixed with experiential exercises. You will also have opportunities to speak with others in structured break-out groups (pairs or triads) as well as in the larger group.

Each class will have its own theme and the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe place, so that they’re more available during the days ahead. Themes include:

  • Grounding and positive intention setting
  • Repertoire of stress responses and meeting difficult emotions
  • Mindful self-compassion
  • Challenging relationships
  • Reframing helplessness
  • ‘What works for me?’ -- wellness journals to cultivate a positive mindset

* Any serious illness that impairs neurologic function, such as Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, brain tumors.
