Resilience Training for Parents and Caregivers
Resilience Training for Ex-Offenders Project
To train and support underserved people in our community who most need intensive help in learning and applying resilience principles in their lives, but who can least afford it.
Resilience is the ability to recover from setbacks, adapt well to change and keep going in the face of adversity. It is a learned skill, essential to living a healthy life, regardless of one’s circumstances!
Together with Dr. Al Zylstra, we aim to engage children, young adolescents, and adults in awakening inherent inner strengths that are designed to instill personal power, stimulate resiliency, enhance spiritual awareness and inspire hope and purpose.
In 2001, Dr. Jerry Sonkens, a Salt Lake City-based doctor treating cancers of the head and neck, asked himself the question, "Why do patients with a similar diagnosis have different responses to treatment?"
