About: By now you’re probably familiar with the term ‘resilient.’ It’s a word we’ve heard countless times over the course of the Pandemic. But what does it mean to be resilient? Psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. 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. There are many aspects of your life you can control, modify, and grow with. 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.

What people are saying about Rebuilding our Resilience:
“I loved this workshop because it allowed me the time to evaluate my mental health in this ever-changing world, and think about who is important in my circle, and the role that social media plays [in our mental health].”
“The discussion around deciding on values and boundaries was useful for me because it made me realize just how much of the things I value really reflect the way I was brought up and previous traumas in my life. It made me question what is “me” and, what is “me as a result of exterior forces”, and how I want to continue going forward.”
“I really took a lot from the introduction to developing a self-care plan.”
“The whole session was useful. I loved it! I especially liked the social connections map, and how it’s always good to look at my own support people and if they need to be re-evaluated based on what’s best for me. I also like the idea of setting SMART goals and using the WIN formula to resolve conflict when it arises.”
