Resources for Resilience

The COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing and Home Care, Home Health, and Hospice agencies have been required to absorb an immense amount of information in a short time frame, adjust policies and procedures, learn new payer source policies, learn how to adapt to constantly changing infection control guidelines and other issues that are involved with a pandemic and public health emergency. Developing resilience and learning how to connect for resilience is important now and will be going forward. Resources for Resilience™ staff will provide a 60-minute virtual orientation to the Reconnect for Resilience™ curriculum.

As a personal testimony from Kathie Smith at AHHC, “I have attended these trainings and found them practical and helpful in how to connect in the moment for resilience. I hope your agency’s staff will find this beneficial as well.”

Participants will learn about Reconnect for Resilience™ resiliency tools:

  1. They will be able to describe how the resiliency tools help reduce trauma symptoms in a nervous system that is out of balance.
  2. They will be able to explain how resiliency tools help people get back into or remain in their resilient zone in the face of stress or adversity.
  3. They will be able to utilize 2-3 of the seven tools in the Resources for Resilience curriculum.

Participants will become familiar with the Adverse Childhood Experiences study and will be able to discuss the role of the autonomic nervous system.
