Columbia University Resilience Enhancement (CURE) Workshops
World Cares Center will host a new workshop program, developed and conducted by senior faculty from Columbia University . The core philosophy of this workshop is that resilience, or “power of recovery,” can be cultivated, practiced, and enhanced in preparation for future major stressful events. The Columbia University Resilience Enhancement ( CURE ) program synthesizes new research findings with teaching strategies that proved successful in the Columbia Center ’s training program for professionals after 9/11.
The CURE program has been specially designed for individuals who have been affected by the 9/11 attacks. This program is not a treatment for PTSD, depression, or other psychological conditions that resulted from 9/11; however, staff can assist in finding treatment for persons in need of more intensive professional help.
