In this uplifting, experiential session, ICALLD participants were introduced to Ryerson University’s Thriving in Action (TiA) program, a unique mind-body-heart-spirit intervention for struggling students. Dr. Diana Brecher and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer explained TiA’s structure and purposes, how TiA fits in to the Canadian academic and wellbeing landscape, and provided opportunities and resources for webinar participants.
Drs. Brecher and Shaffer have generously provided Thriving in Action for FREE to all ICALLD members! Go to tia.ryerson.ca and enter the username TiAO.Free.Guest with the password March2December! for access. Access will be available through April 2021.
The slides are available in two formats (see below). The presentation is rich with information and resources in addition to what was discussed on December 8/9; Drs. Brecher and Shaffer created them with the intention that participants would delve into the topic after the webinar, at their own pace.
For those who were unable to attend synchronously, a recorded version of the session is available here.
