In this uplifting, experiential session, ICALLD participants will be introduced to Ryerson University’s Thriving in Action (TiA) program, a unique mind-body-heart-spirit intervention for struggling students. TiA’s curriculum blends Positive Psychology, CBT, mindfulness, somatic traditions, and holistic learning strategies. In TiA, we have created a semester-long, equity-driven, non-prescriptive, upstream, health-promoting, early alert, pre-probation, midstream transition & retention initiative. 

Join Dr. Diana Brecher and Dr. Deena Kara Shaffer to

  • learn more about TiA,
  • explore the Canadian academic and wellbeing landscape,
  • hear from other Canadian educators implementing TiA,
  • expand your own repertoire of resilience practices, and
  • walk away with a sense of community and hope.
