Join us for Coping in Today’s World - Neighbor to Neighbor: A four-hour modular curriculum that teaches participants how to build their own resilience — the ability to recover quickly after difficult situations.
The course enables families, friends, and neighbors to:
• Strengthen their own emotional resilience and that of their children.
• Recognize stress in adults and children, and how people react to it.
• Provide immediate support and introduce coping skills to members of their families, friends, neighbors and others by using psychological first aid (PFA).
• Provide better emotional support for one another in times of stress, crisis, and disaster.
• Guidance on how and when to seek additional support and community resources
• Taught by mental health professionals (Red Cross Disaster Mental Health)
• Community members who are interested in building psychological/emotional resilience – the ability to adaptively bounce back from challenges or adversity.
• Communities in the disaster preparedness or recovery phases are particularly receptive target audiences.
• Neighborhood Associations
• Civic/social organizations
• Church/religious groups
• 4-H, High school, Teen clubs
