Resilience Dialogues – November 12, 2021Jenny Abercrombie
Resources mentioned during webinar:
Resilience involves the ability to handle stress, bounce back, and move forward in life. The challenges of the last year highlight the need for individual, organizational, and collective resilience. We’ve learned a lot about how to build resilience and improve your ability to deal with all kinds of stress. These dialogues are open forums to explore resilience, all the things that cause stress in our lives, relationships, and more. Please join us for these monthly interactive sessions where everyone, including family members, is welcome. They will be held the second Friday of the month at 9am Pacific Time.
This Dialogue featured special guest, James W. Marshall, M.A., our hosts Mike, Kevin, and Rob, as well as contributions from our attendees. Topics included: the value of not “sucking things up”, integrated care, strategic leadership for your team’s wellness, 9-1-1 Leaders’ Post Tragedy Care Checklist, “911 brain”, home re-entry techniques, tactical napping, and more.
