As the new year begins, the Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is gearing up for its one week training courses, which are designed specifically for civilian mental health providers who are going to be working with service members and their families. CDP offers a number of different kinds of training courses for both active duty health professionals and for civilians, but the civilian provider training is becoming increasingly important.
CDP Offers One Week Training for Civilian Mental Health Providers Toolkit for Resilience
One question that frequently comes up from both warriors and their loved ones – how can I build resilience and reduce risk? Check out this simple tool. I call it the Toolkit for Resilience – or T4R.
Seven short questions – here goes:
- Got stress?
- Got pain?
- Got fuel?
- Got sleep?
- Got friends?
- Got heart?
- Got soul?
Chow, sleep, friends, heart and soul build resilience – the habits and actions that allow us to adapt successfully and grow stronger in the face of adversity.
