Applications are invited from eligible and interested candidates for The Red Door (TRD) Compassion & Resilience Fellowship 2022.
About the Organiser
The Red Door (TRD) was set up in 2011 by Reshma Valliappan and Aparna Sanyal. The idea behind TRD came from what was already a growing movement across the world – to form an intersectional response to emotional distress.
This understanding came from cutting-edge research in the social and neuro sciences, being used in successful models of recovery in mental illness in different parts of the world.
About the Fellowship
The Red Door (TRD), in partnership with the Foundation for Universal Responsibility (FUR) of HH The Dalai Lama, is proud to announce the Compassion & Resilience Fellowship 2022.
Designed as a 6-month virtual program, the Resilience Fellowship addresses an exigency made visible by the Covid pandemic and its psychological fallout– the need to systematically prepare for an increasingly volatile and unpredictable future.
Our program emerges from and builds on TRD’s decade-long work in the mental health & education space. Drawing from the best of Resilience Science, Positive Psychology, Existential therapy, and the Buddhist essentials of compassion and community, the Fellowship will provide 10 individuals between 21 & 30 years the opportunity to enhance their psychosocial skills and get future-ready!
The Red Door Resilience Project addresses an exigency that the Covid 19 pandemic and its psychological fallout has thrown into sharp relief- the need to systematically prepare young people for an increasingly volatile and unpredictable future.
The idea of equipping individuals with competencies that would safeguard them from debilitating emotional distress when faced with adversity was born during TRD’s decade-long work in the area of mental health.
The Resilience Project emerges from, and builds on this idea. Drawing from the best of Resilience science, the program focuses on enhancing psycho-social fitness through experiential learning techniques in a module-based format.
The program approaches resilience from a systemic perspective, recognising that relationship networks and social institutions have as crucial a role to play in facilitating resilience as innate capacity.
Therefore, while we prioritise the nurturing of individual resilience, we are as committed to creating an ecosystem that enables empathetic connections and a sense of purpose in the young, allowing them to consolidate their own capacity for resilience while helping others build theirs.
The courses we offer through The Red Door Resilience Project are compliant with guidelines from The Resilience Research Centre, Halifax, Canada and MGIEP, UNESCO.
- Must be between the age group of 21-30 years.
- Must be an Indian citizen.
- Must have a working knowledge of English.
