Congratulations to Online Programs Ed.D. student Christa Tinari, who has a new role as Director of the Contemplative-Based Resilience Project at The Garrison Institute, a non-profit organization in New York state.
The project provides retreats, courses, and workshops to employees who are exposed to secondary traumatic stress due to their work in social services, health servics, or humanitarian aid.
The CBR Project combines research-based practices in mindful awareness and movement, compassion meditation, and education on the neurobiology of stress and resilience. The aim of the project is to help direct service workers to "be well to serve well."
