I have been in the counseling profession for 18 years and I have attended many trainings with well-regarded presenters.  It is with great pleasure that I attended The Empowerment Model for Stress Resilience with Jeri, Carol, and Nancy.  It is by far the most educational, interesting, and life-affirming training that I have ever attended.  The presenters were well-informed, articulate, engaging, and highly attuned to their audience.  The Empowerment Model for Stress Resilience is directly connected to wholehearted living and the meaningful practice of our craft.  It is not to be missed!

I signed up for the Empowerment  Model for Stress Resilience training thinking I would be able to take information back to our agency and I have, but what I did not expect was to learn what I needed to put more effort into for myself.

I learned not only the importance of the connection & support for our clients but how I needed to work on building up more..connection and support for myself.

During the training we reviewed and practiced mindfulness and meditation so we could experience the difference.

We practiced exercise in the class, you should have seen us, doing push up on the floor and walls. We had lots of good laughs while we learned. We discussed how we can impact our own stress, yes, you can call up “good stress” when needed.. This training educates you in the importance of exercise,nutrition,sleep,mindfulness and support and stress resilience…

This was a a well instructed, interactive training. There was 3 facilitators that were very educated. What made it so enjoyable for me is that they appeared to really enjoy what they were doing and they were their genuine selves.

I would recommend the whole series on Resilience Stress Training for any social service program employees, businesses that are wanting to incorporate wellness education or anyone else…

Thank you Jeri, Carol and Nancy


I have been exercising more after work (walking, cycling) which is helping to relieve stress built up during the day.  I am also working on getting more sleep which is a challenge in my busy household, but the others are starting to see how my mood is better when I can get at least 7-8 hours of sleep.  Finally, I have to admit that “mindful eating” is the biggest challenge as bad “shoveling” habits have built up over the years but at least now I’m aware of this and can work on slowing down.  I think that the “Empowerment Model” the perfect name, as so much of our lives are out of our control, but one thing that we can control is our own wellness, and that is empowering.

Thanks so much,

The typical workplace approach to employee stress is for the employer to create a stress management program. Chandler Bay Resources, Inc. has introduced a complementary or alternative approach to the typical stress management program. This approach is called “The Empowerment Model for Stress Resilience.” Their empowerment model consists of 6, 4-hour training modules. The modules include: Stress Resilience Overview, Mindfulness/Perception, Connection/Support, Exercise, Nutrition, and Sleep.

While each module is designed as a stand alone session, completing all six is the most powerful way to empower employee stress resilience. I have attended all six trainings and found each to be top notch.
