The UI Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is offering a four-week workshop based on Brené Brown's Connections Curriculum. The goal of this workshop is to examine the roles of shame, resilience and empathy and the impacts on how they view themselves and their relationships. This interactive workshop will include group discussions, opportunities to practice coping strategies and selected readings from Brené Brown.

Brené Brown's Connections Curriculum, is a multifaceted approach, developed to address issues relating to shame, and to facilitate the development of shame resilience. The curriculum is ideal for students working with issues such as self-esteem, love and belonging, authenticity, the development of empathy, connection, and power, and the ability to cultivate a resilient spirit.
