Rising Strong™ is a cognitive-behavioral practice which teaches us what it takes to get back up, and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new chapter. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.In this experiential workshop, Dr. Carli Kody will guide participants through the Rising Strong™ practice, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown and her New York Times best-selling book Rising Strong. Dr. Kody will teach participants how to move through the three acts of the Rising Strong™ process: Act 1- the reckoning, Act 2 - the rumble, and Act 3 – the revolution. Workshop participants will learn fundamental skills to examine their personal narratives about falls, mistakes and challenges in their personal and professional lives along with ways to cultivate mindfulness, resilience, and grit.Participants will leave equipped with the practical cognitive and behavioral skills needed to rise strong in the face of adversity in our lives. Workshop content will include individual reflection, small and large group discussion, and Brené Brown's videos, which are part of the Rising Strong™ curriculum. Participants are strongly encouraged to read Dr. Brené Brown's book, Rising Strong, in preparation for the workshop.
