Two-Part Series: A Call to Courage in Times of Adversity

We’ve had to adjust this year’s plans for an in-person School Forum, but make sure to join us for some Forum-worthy topics via our new ABMP Friday Forum Series: Online Edition!

We’re kicking off this new series with a focus on “A Call to Courage in Times of Adversity.” After all, nothing creates a call for courageous leadership more than a pandemic. From turning massage education delivery models upside down to staying present during a nation’s cry for social justice, these are incredibly tough times for everyone, schools included.

Join ABMP and Amy Andrews McMaster for our two-part series using the work of Brené Brown from her latest New York Times best seller, Dare to Lead. Amy is a leadership consultant and a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator who masterfully inspires brave leadership skills incorporating Brené Brown’s research and tools for courageous leadership. Just what today’s “new normal” requires.

We look forward to sharing this inspirational and meaningful information with you during our Friday Forum Series: Online Edition! Make sure to register for each event you’d like to attend below. You will receive a separate email confirmation and meeting link for each meeting registration.

Bonus! In addition to our school series, we’ll have a special session with Amy for your students! The information is below, and you can have them register at www.abmp.com/events/details/WA-100920, or register yourself and show it to your class.

Student Session: “Embrace the Suck” with Brené Brown Certified Instructor Amy Andrews McMaster

Date: Friday, October 9, 2020
Time: 10:00 a.m. (Mountain Time) Approximately 60 minutes
Type: Webinar (Free Event)

We recently surveyed massage students across the country to see how they’ve been managing their school changes throughout the pandemic. The responses were clear: students have been experiencing a “call to courage” in these times of disappointment, uncertainty, and the derailment of plans.

So, how do we “embrace the suck” during a pandemic? Join us on Friday, October 9, for this special student webinar session as Brené Brown Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator Amy Andrews McMaster walks us through a discussion on vulnerability, braving tough times, removing our armor, and finding our call to courage. Get ready for some inspirational support and tools to stay motivated, experience less anxiety, and develop resilience.
This event is free to the entire profession. If you have a friend who could use a little help with “embracing the suck” too, send them the registration link so you can support each other on the journey!
