Webinar: Building Resilience for Individuals through Trauma Education (BRITE)

Resilience empowers people to overcome the negative impact of trauma on their physical and mental health. Fortunately, there are practical steps that people can learn to effectively cope with and manage the impact of past stressful events and face future challenges with confidence.

That’s why Dr. Anthony Salerno developed the Building Resilience for Individuals through Trauma Education (BRITE) program. BRITE gives adults adversely impacted by stressful life events and conditions, the knowledge, information and problem-solving strategies they need to build resilience. BRITE is an empowering resource that provides individuals with information and tools that support informed decision making and taking action towards personally meaningful goals and needs.  

During this one-day training, facilitators learn to conduct group and one-on-one BRITE sessions across gender, culture and service settings. The curriculum will help providers teach clients about the effects of trauma, how to adapt resilience-building skills and strategies and the components of a successful plan to improve their health.
