This course consists of 6 modules from the TX DPS Resilience Program.
TX DPS Resilience program is a new paradigm of fitness. No longer is fitness simply defined by a PT score or what a person can do in the gym. Therefore, the way the DPS provides training and services will shift to emphasize a holistic approach to a person's health: mental, physical, social, and spiritual fitness.
TX DPS Resilience program is made up of domains and tenets. The domains and tenets were determined by subject matter experts in the field of psychological resilience in collaboration with USAF. The four domains are the areas of a person's life which capture the totality of how they experience and relate to others and themselves, being fit across the four domains will lead to a more resilient individual. The domains and tenets are as follows:
Resilience: the ability to withstand, recover and/or grow in the face of stressors and changing demands
Mental: the ability to effectively cope with unique mental stressors and challenges
Physical: the ability to adopt and sustain healthy behaviors needed to enhance health and wellbeing
Social: the ability to engage in healthy social networks that promote overall well-being and optimal performance
Spiritual: the ability to strengthen a set of beliefs, principles, or values that sustain an individual's sense of well-being and purpose
