Wellbeing and Resilience Within Correctional Environments

Code: HEAL8100

Course description

Wellbeing and resilience are important components of helping people to make and sustain change or to avoid the need for significant behaviour change. For those working in corrections, this is especially important on both a personal and professional level and especially when complex populations are involved. Students will explore the concepts of wellbeing and resilience, identify the components of both, identify those threats to wellbeing and resilience and develop an understanding of the change process. Students will also focus on developing an understanding of trauma theory, compassion fatigue, stress management, self-care, mindfulness and other strategies to increase wellbeing and resilience for use on both a personal and professional level.
