This two-episode bonus podcast set covers the two new Train the Trainer certificate courses presented by Dr. Bennett, offered in collaboration between the National Wellness Institute and Organizational Wellness and Learning Systems:
"Resilience & Thriving: The Secret Power of Stress", and "Empowered Health Consciousness & Prescription Drugs: The Wellness Alternative"
Episode 22 is Part 1 of our two-part interview with Dr. Bennett. In this episode, he discusses what "Train the Trainer" certificate courses are and who will most benefit by taking them. He also discussed the "Resilience & Thriving: The Secret Power of Stress" course from this new series.
All individuals in search of personal coping and resilience building, education, and practice can benefit from receiving the "Resilience & Thriving: The Secret Power of Stress" training. The Train-the-Trainer certificate course, however, is recommended for professionals who wish to offer the training to, and use the resources with, their students, employees, or clients.
Episode 23 is Part 2 of our two-part interview with Dr. Bennett. In this episode, he continues to discuss the "Resilience & Thriving: The Secret Power of Stress" course from this new series. He also discusses the second course in this new series, "Empowered Health Consciousness & Prescription Drugs: The Wellness Alternative".
The National Wellness Institute’s new 5-credit certificate course—based on an evidence-informed program developed by Organizational Wellness & Learning Systems (OWLS), with funding from the U.S. Department of Health (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency, SAMHSA)—provides information and tools to bring health consciousness and prescription drug misuse awareness to the workplace and beyond.
This course provides information about the risks associated with prescription drug misuse, emphasizes the harmful effects of misuse, discusses the problems associated with misuse in the workplace, and provides health-conscious alternatives for prescription drug use.
