Welcome to the JIBC’s course on building resilience! This course is entirely web-based and uses exercises, web-based self-assessment tools, and videos to engage you in learning the knowledge and skills that will increase your ability to work/volunteer as an Emergency Responder (e.g., police, fire, ambulance, correctional workers) or a Healthcare Worker (e.g., nurse) while maintaining wellness throughout your career.
The material has been developed in collaboration with Emergency Responders and Healthcare professionals like you. The intended audience is rather broad so that students and trainees can benefit from the course as well as persons with more work experience. Lastly, we have developed the course to be useful for volunteers and civilians who may also be involved in working in stressful and/or traumatic environments.
