Building Resilience Program
Resilience refers to an ability to bounce back from difficulty. Using a combination of psycho-education derived from the current developments in the field of neuropsychotherapy, with opportunities to try new skills, this 10-week program is tailored for people seeking ways to enhance their ability to handle stress and inner suffering.
Mindful Awareness Training Program (MAST)
MAST is a brief 4-week program developed at St. Michael’s Hospital to teach introductory mindfulness and emotion regulation skills to people struggling with mental health challenges with an emphasis on psycho-education and shorter meditation practices. The group has helped people learn mindfulness skills to use in their daily life and also prepare them to participate in longer, more intensive 8-10 week groups, if you so choose. Concepts from sensorimotor psychotherapy such as the window of tolerance and basics of neuroscience are taught within the program to help people understand the importance of modulating arousal in order to stay well.
