Transformational Resilience (TR) workshops


The Resource Innovation Group (TRIG), in partnership with the The Sanctuary Institute, is offering two Transformational Resilience (TR) workshops this November in Portland, OR. The TR program helps private, public, and non-profit leaders recognize and enhance their natural capacities to cope with traumas and chronic stresses of many types, including those enhanced by climate change, and use those adversities as catalysts to make values-based choices to learn, grow, and enhance well being. More information can be found here:

The workshops are co-sponsored by: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, City of Portland Department of Planning and Sustainability, City of Portland Bureau of Emergency Management, Clackamas County Health, Housing, and Human Services, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Multnomah County Department of Mental Health and Addiction, Mulnomah County Office of Emergency Management, Multnomah County Department of Aging and Disabilities Services, Multnomah County Office of Sustainability, & The Resource Innovation Group.

November 13-14: Leaders Self-Care Workshop

This workshop is designed to help leaders learn how to care for themselves as they care for others in the midst of stress and adversity. The resilient  GROWTH© model will be used to teach participants simple neuroscience-based presencing skills to calm and center themselves by countering their body’s natural psychobiological reaction to adversity. Participants will then learn simple purposing skills to make values-based choices to guide their actions in the midst of ongoing stress and trauma.
Location: Plaza Conference Room, World Trade Center, 121 SW Salmon, Portland, OR
Cost:  $185 per person (a limited number of scholarships are available)

November 18: Organizational & Community Safe Haven TR Workshop

To cope and thrive in the midst of stress and trauma, including the direct and indirect adversities generated by climate change, organizations and communities need to become psychological and emotional Safe Havens for employees and stakeholders. Yet, many organizations react to adversity by unconsciously adopting self-protective mechanisms that further stress and traumatize people. The Safe Haven TR workshop will help senior and mid-level executives from public, private, and non-profit organizations understand the differences between a “trauma-organized” and “resilience-enhancing” organization and assess the degree to which their organization is trauma-organized. Using the Sanctuary Model as a guide, the principles and practices of resilience-enhancing organizations will then be explained. Participants will then learn how to develop and implement systems-based change strategies and develop a customized strategy to transition their organization to a resilience-enhancing Safe-Haven. 
Location: Flaggs Room, World Trade Center, 121 SW Salmon, Portland, OR 
Cost:  $95 per person (a limited number of scholarships are available)
