Building Resilience Through Trail Running: A Gender Perspective 

Thursday July 11th, 2019

12:00 -1:00 pm

Pre-approved for 1.0 hours of education or .10 CEU


Synopsis of Webinar:

Selene Lincoln is in Douglas College’s Therapeutic Recreation Degree Program in Coquitlam, BC. In the fall of 2018, she conducted a research study as part of THRT 3710: Community-based Research under the supervision of Dr. Colleen Reid. The purpose of the study was to determine gender-related differences in the development of resilience through trail running. This webinar will walk through the research process and results, and discuss implications for the field of therapeutic recreation. Resilience is an important factor for many of the client groups that therapeutic recreation practitioners work alongside. Any insight into the nuances of how it is developed and supported in individuals is key when it comes to fostering resilience with clients.


Learning Objectives:

After the session, participants will be able to:
1. Define resilience and describe two ways it is applicable to BCTRA client groups.
2. Identify two gender-based differences in the development of resilience.
3. Identify at least one strategy to support an individual’s resilience in their particular place of work.
