Be Resilient Training

Be Resilient Training focuses on whole health care: psychologically, physically, spiritually and socially. Dealing with mild traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and moral injury is not an easy feat. Focusing on stress management, a proper sleep regimen, and pain control can be liberating. Utilizing ideal fuel and nutrition we put into our bodies and expending our energy is the essence of living a balanced life. Addressing all four components is key to determining the root cause of the problem and to be able to implement successful techniques to promote resiliency.

An introduction to the 8 tenets, material from the book Be Resilient: A Path to Restoring Brain Health, will arm you with the tools to find resiliency and live well. By bringing these 8 tenets together into one complete curriculum, whole health healing can be achieved. We will teach you to recognize, respond, recover and repeat.
