MINDFUL RESILIENCE FOR TRAUMA RECOVERY: 
A YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

 

Mindful Resilience has been successfully integrated into mental health and addiction treatment programs for veterans and active-duty military across the US and Canada.

In this training, you will explore:

  • The development, course, and consequences of trauma-related disorders
  • The psycho-therapeutic treatment of trauma-related disorders and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
  • Special considerations and cautions when providing yoga therapy to veterans and other trauma-affected individuals
  • Specific practices, guiding principles, and resources found to be helpful for veterans coping with trauma, including a detailed treatment manual with an empirically-informed, clinically-tested 12-week protocol, and access to a downloadable electronic copy (pdf) of the Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans Recovering from Trauma practice guide.

Mindful Resilience for Recovery and Resilience is an evidence-informed, clinically-tested yoga program that was developed specifically for veterans recovering from posttraumatic stress and other psychological difficulties.

It is an evidence-informed, in that practices have been chosen and adapted based on clinical and neuro-scientific knowledge about posttraumatic stress and its treatment.  

It is clinically-tested, in that it was developed based on feedback from hundreds of veterans and active-duty service members receiving treatment at residential and outpatient treatment programs.

This Veterans Yoga Project training consists of a balance of practice and lecture/discussion.  At the end of the training, participants will understand the symptoms of post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders, how those symptoms are related to underlying neurobiology, and how to use this understanding to most effectively teach individuals recovering from trauma.   

Created by Daniel J. Libby, PhD.  Daniel is a licensed clinical psychologist and yoga teacher and is an expert in the mindful integration of evidence-based psychotherapies and complementary and alternative medicine practices for the treatment of PTS(D) and other psychological and emotional distress in active-duty military and veterans.  Your teacher will be Brianna Renner, Veteran's Yoga Project Program Director. Brianna's veteran yoga class was featured on Mountain Lake PBS's series Veterans Coming Home. "Marine Brianna Renner helps veterans suffering through a variety of issues with the Veterans Yoga Project. Bringing often solitary veterans into a welcoming community focused on personal growth and wellness through yoga and helping each other become the best they can be." ~Mountain Lake PBS, Sept 16, 2016
