CEU Opportunity – A Daily Nature Practice: Playful Self-Care for Healthcare Professionals

Posted January 20th 2020

The content is CE Pre-Approved by NCTRC for 12 hours of continuing education!

This transformative online course is an 8-week interactive guide to noticing nearby nature for personal and professional self-care.

It’s easy to underestimate how much better we feel and function when we focus our attention, however briefly, on the living earth: gazing at clouds, watching leaves dance in the breeze, or listening to birdsong.

You’ll be guided through the process of creating enjoyable new habits that help you to thrive in your daily life. Benefits of this course can include more energy and job satisfaction, reduced stress, feelings of calm peacefulness, a more playful attitude, and more frequent bursts of joy!

The course content is both playful & profound. Science and art combine in real-life stories, recent research findings, videos, poetry, quotes and graphics to inspire and inform you. Simple nature activities and personal reflections will ground you in the moment and reawaken your childlike sense of wonder about the fascinating world you inhabit.

Enrollment is limited for this interactive learning experience.

BCTRA WEBINAR on January 29th: Just the Facts – TR Evidence Based Fact Sheets

Posted January 16th 2020

Wednesday January 29th 

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Pre-approved by NCTRC and BCTRA for .10 CEU or 1 Contact Hour of Continuing Education


TR staff often find that they are recommending participation in specific recreation/leisure activities without being completely knowledgeable about the current state of evidence that would indicate potential benefits and/or drawbacks of participation. To overcome this challenge, we are using a “traffic lighting” process to guide the creation of staff documents that summarize the evidence allowing staff to recommend these activities with confidence. These staff documents are then used to create a library of activity-specific fact sheets that condense the evidence in a meaningful way using common language for families. However, these fact sheets aren’t just applicable to families; they can be used as a tool for leisure education for a number of populations and audiences. Specific templates for staff data collection and family fact sheets will be provided. Information will also be provided on the traffic lighting process.
