Faculty/Staff Complete Resilience & Thriving Facilitator Certificate
An increasing number of wellness practitioners are being asked to deliver training or coaching in the areas of resilience and thriving. To meet this need, eight faculty and staff members from the UW-Stevens Point School of Health Promotion and Human Development completed the Resilience & Thriving Facilitator Certificate from the National Wellness Institute (NWI), in collaboration with Organizational Wellness Learning Systems (OWLS).
Through evidence-informed tools and competency-based training, participants learned a new system that integrates NWI’s 6 Dimensions of Wellness model with the concepts of stress, resilience, and thriving, and also aligns with the NWI Wellness Promotion Competency Model.
Certificate course participants—as well as the individuals they train—will be able to:
- distinguish between how stress, resilience and thriving operates in their lives
- identify the effects of stress and signs of not coping well
- identify personal coping style and strengths for transforming stress into a positive factor
- identify how stress is a risk factor for both personal health and workplace outcomes
- recognize healthy alternatives to working with stress
- describe five specific steps to thrive from stress
