Program Overview

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

In Sight of Dreams ‘Back on Track’ program targets life change: – Inspiring, challenging and mentoring people with acquired disability through to acceptance and achieving their dreams.  It is in two parts that run concurrently – the Resilience Box™ program and a mentored goal-setting program.

In Sight of Dreams work with Resilia who have adapted a program called the Resilience Box™  – a recovery support education program, especially for In Sight of Dreams.

In today’s fast-paced and complex environment where the goal posts seem to continually shift many people struggle with managing the many demands and pressures placed upon them. However, most of this can be prevented.

More than ever, it has become increasingly important for people to learn how to cope with change, and deal with stress and interpersonal conflict in constructive ways by developing fundamental work-life skills.

The Resilience Box™ is a comprehensive psychological wellbeing program which has been specifically designed to strengthen personal resilience and get people back on track. It has been developed from the latest worldwide evidence-based research in positive psychology to achieve meaningful and lasting self-directed behaviour change.

Aspects of the Resilience Box™ can also be used as a preventative measure in maintaining wellbeing and preventing psychological injury.

What’s in the box?

The Resilience Box™  consists of six core modules comprised of various learning sessions run over twelve weeks.  Each session is tailored to the needs of participants.

The six learning modules are:

MY LIFE

This is the foundation module aimed at enrolling participants on a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. This module explains how the program works and the benefits, explores current state of thinking and establishes roles and responsibilities and support mechanisms. It also introduces participants to the dynamics of self-directed behaviour change.

MY PLAN

From the very first session participants develop and work on their own individual action plans and receive 1:1 coaching support to achieve their goals. This module ties everything together and provides the platform for maintaining momentum and achieving meaningful and lasting behaviour change. Participants develop goal setting, decision-making, and problem solving skills and learn how to identify and overcome obstacles

MY BODY

Participants are introduced to a physical wellbeing model that builds personal resilience. Participants learn practical strategies and techniques through physical activity and exercise, positive nutrition, and rest and relaxation, which are key components of enhancing physical wellbeing.

MY MIND

Considered to be the cornerstone of the whole program, this module introduces participants to the dynamics and effects of stress. Participants learn about the power of our thoughts and the control they have over their response to life’s’ events through proven cognitive behavioural strategies which minimise stress reactions.

MY EMOTIONS

This module explores the often complex link between our thoughts and our moods. Participants learn to identify emotional reactions and explore a range of practical mindfulness techniques to assist with emotional regulation through acceptance and commitment.

MY RELATIONSHIPS

Interpersonal conflict is the most common cause of workplace stress. In this comprehensive module participants learn the fundamentals of building and maintaining positive workplace relationships through improved communication competence. Participants also explore their own unique behavioural styles and learn practical strategies to work better with others and prevent and manage workplace conflict.

Interpersonal conflict is the most common cause of personal stress. In this comprehensive module participants learn the fundamentals of building and maintaining positive relationships through improved communication competence. Participants also explore their own unique behavioural styles and learn practical strategies to interact more effectively with others and prevent and manage interpersonal conflict.

During the MyPlan, MyBody, and MyMind modules participants will develop the challenging activities for themselves.  For each participant what is a challenging activity for one person may/will be different for another participant.  For one person it might be to arrange to travel to a different city to visit a friend, but to another person a challenging activity may be walking the Kokoda Track, or sailing the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.  Insight of Dreams will provide support to the participant to identify and achieve that challenging activity and provide mentors where appropriate to support them through this process.

At the end of the program participants will have the tools and the ‘runs on the board’ to have a productive and happy life and the knowledge and ability to achieve their dreams.
