Give yourself grace. Growth takes time.

A look at resilience

Resilience helps us tackle life’s unexpected changes, difficulties, & failures in healthy ways. Resilience consists of a range of skills that improve as you practice.

The Resilience Workshop Series gives opportunities for students to learn how to develop & implement these skills into everyday life.

  • Adjusting, adapting, and coping WELL with challenges and change
  • An ordinary process that can be learned by anyone
  • Includes your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors
  • Requires a community that encourages and gives it space to live and grow

Resilience workshops

Skill building workshop(s) will include topics such as:

  • Things you do for yourself – mindfulness, gratitude, self-care, tracking your emotions & body
  • Ways you view yourself and the world – growth mindset, optimism, realistic expectations
  • Your relationships – healthy relationships, boundaries, empathy
