Thriving in Action Program - Wellness


Thriving in Action (TiA) is an evidence-based program developed at Ryerson University that combines positive psychology and innovative learning strategies to support students in developing the skills and resiliency that they need to thrive. TiA participants engage in group-based learning that supports students, prevents distress, bolsters self-efficacy, and supports persistence. TiA participants gain a deepened sense of belonging, increased agency, restored focus, and increased confidence. TiA students are taught tools to flourish, academically and personally. The program increases student mental health, academic skill, and overall self-efficacy. Many students also report significant increases in academic grades and “although the program is not therapy, it is highly therapeutic”.

Position Requirements

Program participants complete 12hours of synchronous group-based learning activities and lectures. Participants also complete 3hours of asynchronous exercises and learning activities. Participants complete a minimum of 15hours in total of program activity which covers a variety of positive psychology and innovative learning strategy topics.
