The DARS Well-Being Roadmap is a multifaceted initiative to boost the well-being and resilience of staff at the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitation Services (DARS). The program includes a research-informed workbook that guides participants through the BET I CAN (Behaviors, Emotions, Thoughts, Interactions, Context, Awareness, and Next Steps) framework and activities to facilitate personal, organizational, and social/community change. The roadmap also incorporates positive psychology interventions suitable for individual, dyadic, or team participation and includes measurement tools for evaluating progress over time. The Well-Being Roadmap offers a comprehensive approach to understanding the interplay between psychological and sociological factors that contribute to justice and flourishing in the context of government agencies.
