- Strengthening Resilience
April 17, 2021
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Instructor: Jill Antonishak
Over the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way we work and live. There is no easy way through the crisis, but building resilience skills can help you deal with the uncertainty and stress. Resilience skills provide a reservoir of resources—such as social connections, the ability to draw on strengths, and having a sense of purpose—that strengthen our personal and professional performance and well-being. In this interactive workshop, we’ll focus on techniques for forward thinking even in the face of stress, change, or uncertainty, and ways to strengthen resilient thinking. We’ll provide a simple, scientific roadmap for improving your resilience and well-being.
