About this workshop: By now you’re probably familiar with the term ‘resilient.’ Psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress. As much as resilience involves “bouncing back” from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth. While these adverse events are certainly painful and difficult, they don’t have to determine the outcome of your life. That’s the role of resilience. Becoming more resilient not only helps you get through difficult circumstances, it also empowers you to grow and even improve your life along the way. This workshop offers tips and techniques for anyone looking to manage stress, build their coping skills and learn to thrive.
