Community resilience and connected relationships
Building compassionate communities
Level: 3 | Modules: 1 | Hours: 10
Resilience is important for every human, and much attention has been given to how individual resilience can be developed and supported. But even more important at periods of global challenge is understanding how communities can become more resilient, so that individuals can be safely held through turbulent times and experience recovery from trauma. Compassionate reason, a motivational state which underpins both individual and community resilience, results in the connected relationships which are essential. This course explores the interplay between individual and community resilience, and how each of us can play a part in developing and sustaining compassionate communities.
