Changing Your Mind


Changing your Mind - Online Course

The research this course is based on suggests a reflective practice could be a contributing factor to being resilient to paramedic occupational stressors. Where other courses focus on teaching how to manage, and cope with, the effects of the critical stressors (very important skills), this course differs in that it teaches individuals how to cognitively process critical stressors; to learn how to see the world in a different way; to change your mind, in an effort to mitigate stress reactions.

The author and facilitator of this training program, David Wolff, has over 30 years of paramedic experience where much non-formal/informal learning and research occurred throughout his personal journey. Mr Wolff had the opportunity to leverage that experience and conduct formal research in a postgraduate university program. This course is based on Mr. Wolff's Master's program research project that was conducted for partial fulfilment for the degree of Master of Adult Education, St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, Nova Scotia. 

This course is designed for groups of new or preservice paramedics. Contact us for more information on how to access this course for your group.


Mental Health Psychoeducation - Coaching

What is Mental Health Psychoeducation - Coaching? It may be easier to explain what it is not. Mental Health Psychoeducation - Coaching is not counselling or therapy. A psychoeducator/mental health coach does not delve into past events. They do not identify root causes or diagnose illness, and they do not provide therapeutic interventions. The focus of a psychoeducator/mental health coach is prevention, learning, and transformation of self and worldviews.

Mental Health Psychoeducation - Coaching is built on relationship, and the psychoeducator/mental health coach is a peer, guide, and facilitator that helps individuals see the world in a different way, changing how you know, focusing on the mind, soul, and spirit.

The Mental Health Pychoeducation - Coaching for individuals or groups is built on the foundation of the Good News; the Kingdom of God is at hand. For detailed information on what this means and the philosophy of psychoeducation, please see David Wolff's Philosophy of Psychoeducation.
