The RTL Self Care & Mental Health is a online learning in action workshop that  fosters resilience and wellbeing using the Conscious Full-Spectrum Response (CFSR) model. Alongside therapeutic interventions, self-care is a continuous process of empowerment and healing.

 

The foundational premise of this work is that all people are capable of anchoring themselves in their innate universal values of fairness, dignity and compassion; and they have the capacity to be in action, whether the person is ill or well, or is in the process of recovery.

 

This workshop is based on cutting edge neuroscience, psychology and uses the Radical Transformational Leadership tools and templates, including the CFSR Model to create game changing responses and realise the full potential of the participants of the program.

CONTEXT AND PURPOSE

Our lives are affected by emergencies and it is imperative to have more support and action. Such situations (for example, the COVID pandemic, droughts, floods, etc.) demand that we not only respond to the crisis, but also foster resilience and wellbeing using the Conscious Full-Spectrum Response (CFSR) model. Alongside therapeutic interventions, self-care is a continuous process of empowerment and healing. The foundational premise of this work is that all people are capable of anchoring themselves in their innate universal values of fairness, dignity and compassion; and they have the capacity to be in action, whether the person is ill or well, or is in the process of recovery. Everyone is a ‘leader’ – a person who takes action at home, at work and in society to create new futures. Thus, we can foster responsibility, safety, humanity and wellbeing for all.


This workshop is based on cutting edge neuroscience, psychology and uses the Radical Transformational Leadership tools and templates, including the CFSR Model to create game changing responses and realise the full potential of the participants of the program.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives  of the RTL self-care workshop are to

  • learn, deepen and co-create responsive engagement with citizens and people who serve, by sourcing their own and others universal values

  • Along with therapeutic interventions wherever required learning to empower oneself and heal

  • recognise and shift diminishing cultural norms into life enhancing practices

  • design structures for care and inclusion that promote well–being now, and beyond the pandemic.

  • anchor themselves in their universal values and befriend stress to build resilience.

 

Through this workshop, the participants will recognise and understand their experiences of stress, know how the brain works; befriend and deal with everyday stress; learn how to recognise life diminishing social and cultural norms, identify triggers that are nested in disempowering cultural norms and explore ways of dealing with them. When an individual is able to recognise triggers from life diminishing practices at home/family, workplace and society and source their universal values, the person is able to shift unworkable cultural norms and systems to function effectively in their everyday life. In this process, the participants are better able to unfold self for responsive action to deal with situations that lead to stress and care for themselves. While caring for self, we undertake actions that create practices and opportunities to care for others and the planet. The CFSR model fosters the alignment between what I care about in this world/the purpose of my existence, ways to shift what is not working in my family, workplace and community and take responsible actions that are sustainable and equitable.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The learning in action program is designed to enhance self-care for all citizens and practitioners in any sector, namely development, education, health and corporate. Teachers and students of schools and higher education institutions, volunteers, employers and workplace managers, disaster frontline workers, counsellors and related professionals, families and caregivers, community leaders, volunteers and members and stakeholders such as police, judiciary, government and policy makers will benefit from this program. They will be able to identify their experiences related to stressful situations and develop a relationship with stress that transcends distress and fosters resilience.
