Maine Resilience and Duct Tape Isn’t Enough offer a new online train-the-trainer program to individuals who wish to become resilience trainers. The training is in collaboration with the University of Maine at Augusta, Office of Professional Development and will be available to students anywhere high speed internet access is available.
Tragedy and adversity are part of life. We can’t avoid them - but we can learn how to seize the wheel and steer through them. Duct Tape Isn’t Enough and accompanying materials teach the survival skills necessary to weather tough times. Resilience helps individuals regain their sense of balance, productivity, and well-being as they address issues and needs relating to life challenges. Resilience training provides skills to help manage crisis, reduce everyday stressful situation, and help people to be more effective in meeting job and personal demands that are associated with everyday living.
Once registered, access will be provided to the training program and the individual will work through the exercises and activities, using actual course materials. The program is interactive with the instructor and other registered participants creating a learning environment focused on applied and reality-based learning outcomes. Successful completion will result in a certification to use and instruct a Maine Resilience, Duct Tape Isn’t Enough program to groups that you develop. The University of Maine at Augusta, Office of Professional Development, will award three (3) CEU’s upon successful completion.
Being familiar with Dr. Breazeale’s book, Duct Tape Isn’t Enough, and DVDs "Daily Hero’s," DVD presentation on Modules 1-6, and the DVD "Where’s Herbie" will allow the individual to schedule and conduct resilience training to groups and organization of their choice.
