Introduction to Embodying Your Practice

This on-demand course is divided into four modules, which are typically completed over four weeks.
Location: Online

Introduction to Embodying Your Practice is a dynamic approach that brings relief from the overwhelm by teaching BCNU members effective tools and protocols to settle their nervous systems. You can immediately begin to incorporate these tools into your daily life, whether it's at home, on your way to work, while you're organizing charts on your shift, or getting ready to leave work at the end of the day. We know that you don't need more busywork, you need practical protocols that will help you to settle and feel connected to yourself in an efficient way, and that's what you'll find in the course.

Introduction to Embodying Your Practice is designed so that you can experience calm and a sense of settledness in your body that will sustain you even in the most challenging of times.

You can do the practices on your own time, and it should take no more than 1-2 hours per week over the course of about four weeks. The modules lead you through the foundational skills of trauma-informed practice, so that you can resource yourself, settle your nervous system, and process the overwhelm and trauma that you hold in your body, whether it arises from pandemic burnout, personal trauma, or racialized and ancestral trauma.

At the end of four weeks, you'll have a toolkit for working with your overwhelm, holding appropriate boundaries in your life and work, and collaborating to create a more equitable and relational workplace. 

The Introduction to Embodying Your Practice course is available for FREE to the BC Nurses' Union membership – but members must use the coupon code. Look for the field on the registration page requesting you to enter the coupon field – and type in the code BCNUMEMBER.
