The CORE Institute is an experiential learning hub that is the result of a collaboration between Play At The Core and Dr. G’s Lab. The goal of the initiative is to build a learning community that uses their assets and experiences to author a healing-centered paradigm shift across the helping professions.
CORE is an acronym that stands for “Collective Organizational Resilience through Empathy”.
Join us on Monday, October 3, 2022 at 12:00pm EST as we share the research guiding this work, experience sample programming, and our vision for this new learning community.
Participation is FREE and open to any member of the helping professions. Register for the Virtual Program Launch here.
In times of great turmoil and pain within the helping professions, TIS models have been a tried and true strategy for promoting resilience. In a post-2020 context, however, TIS approaches are being understood as incomplete – they often pathologize trauma rather than foster wellbeing, and were not designed to engage collective adversities or root causes (Ginwright). The shared challenges of this moment are begging us to go beyond current systems and ways of operating, and CORE is hoping to co-create a new paradigm of healing that addresses these critical gaps with our partners.
