Wellness and Resilience within the Correctional Environments

MECA 1581

Well-being and resilience are important components of helping people to make and sustain change or to avoid the need for significant behaviour change. For those working in corrections, this is especially important on both a personal and professional level and especially when complex populations are involved. Students will explore the concepts of well-being and resilience, identify the components of both, identify those threats to well-being and resilience and develop an understanding of the change process. Students will also focus on developing an understanding of trauma theory, compassion fatigue, stress management, self-care, mindfulness and other strategies to increase well-being and resilience for use on both a personal and professional level.


The minimum passing grade for this course is 55%. Designed for those with a diploma or degree in health, social services or other related human service fields.
