This workshop is approved by NYS as Continuing Education for Social Workers (Provider #0270) and provides 4 contact hours

Resilience is increasingly recognized as the cornerstone of success for students in the classroom and adults in their work and home life. It is the capacity to adapt to changing circumstances beyond one's control, respond creatively and effectively under stressful conditions, cope with adversity and recover from painful life events. Applied Improvisation is an ideal method for exploring the mindset that produces the traits associated with resilience because it actively engages the mental, emotional and attitudes of everyone involved in a positive, productive experience. The principles that drive Applied Improvisation demonstrate the concept of resilience while training the skills that promote it. The techniques, games and exercises used in this workshop can be deployed in classrooms, therapy groups, and training seminars. The principles of resilience we will discuss are applicable to individual therapy and many techniques can be adapted for a variety of clinical applications. 

We will explore:

The concept of resilience and the mindset associated with it;

The skills and traits associated with resilience;

Creative experiences that strengthen resilience;

Applied Improvisation as a method for demonstrating and cultivating resilience in classrooms, therapy groups and training seminars;

Research into the mindset and skills that strengthen resilience;
