Editors' Note: This story ran in our July newsletter, published July 1.


Our Center has received numerous requests for training in the Adult Resilience Curriculum (ARC) for Educators, and now we are excited to offer a 2021-2022 training-of-trainers series for school, district, educational agency, or state-level teams interested in implementing the ARC within their schools or districts.


For those who are unfamiliar, the ARC is a 10-module model for implementing well-being at both the individual and organizational level. The curriculum is rooted in adult positive psychology and organizational well-being theories, and it has been adapted to apply across medical and educational settings.


The ARC for Educators: A Training of Trainers Series will:

  • Provide an overview and foundation of the ARC for Educators framework;
  • Introduce trainers to the materials for both the core and supplemental skills; and
  • Provide time for implementation planning.


To take part, applicants will need to identify 4-8 team members, including persons responsible for implementing the ARC, and submit their applications by 5 p.m. CT Friday, Aug. 20. We strongly recommend that teams include at least one administrative leader or decision-maker, even if this person will not be leading curriculum delivery. In the event of space limitations, preference will be given to teams in HHS Region 7 (Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri).


Accepted teams will convene in two cohorts that meet from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Central Time on the following dates:


  • Cohort 1: September 2nd, October 7th, November 4th, December 2nd, January 6th* 
  • Cohort 2: January 6th*, February 3rd, March 3rd, April 7th, May 5th


*Both cohorts will attend a special session on January 6, 2022.
