CPR: Catch Triggers Before They Escalate

Community Health

I recently did a virtual keynote at the Healthy Workplace Awards 2020 Ceremony.

Given all we are collectively going through, I thought the notes and video from the presentation would be helpful to everyone.

Especially as we wrap up 2020. A year where we collectively experienced one of the most monumental global events in history.

A time of rapid change, adaptation, and transformation.

Virtual Keynote Talk

During the 14 minute virtual keynote, I shared a Framework for Sustainable Resilience and Mental Health called Catch Pause Repair (CPR):

CPR includes 3 steps:

1. Catch

Catch yourself in the midst (or before) before a stress response escalates by becoming more aware of what triggers you.
