Dear friends,

We are delighted to invite you to attend our spring *Thriving in Action
Virtual Training Institution, May 3-7, 2021, 1-4pm (EDT)
< > *($250/week or $75/day). Join us and
learn about Ryerson University's Thriving in Action program which
integrates Positive Psychology essentials like resilience, self-compassion,
optimism, character strengths, and gratitude, with progressive learning
strategies, including mindfulness-based time management, note-taking,
collaborative group work, and somatic approaches for concentration and
memory, to support students who self-identify as struggling. An upstream,
transition, early alert, and retention intervention, TiA teaches students
holistic strategies, from sleep to studying, habits to harnessing
willpower, affirmative listening to agency, and note-taking to
meaning-making. In this five half-day online training, we will also share
several TiA-related research projects underway, and hear how other
educators are implementing TiA at their campuses.

Whether you attend for the week, or for a day or two, you will leave
feeling bolstered in your work and wisdom, and connected to this
flourishing project and community that is itself flourishing.
