In times of stress, resilience is key. Luckily, resilience can be learned. In this interactive course, you will learn research-based techniques to help you build resilience, navigate setbacks, and identify your purpose. Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, this course will teach you how to find solid footing when you feel overwhelmed and a way to find the strength to bounce back. The course will first focus internally. You will learn to understand what goes on in your mind when you feel sad, angry, or happy. The course will then focus externally on how to deal with others. When you are ready to bounce back, can you pull others along? When others are causing you stress, can you face them constructively? And, when others in distress need your support, can you offer it? You will learn techniques to improve your interactions with others. Specific applications will help you prepare to deal with difficult situations, difficult people, and difficult conversations. Students will acquire a framework to analyze and discuss their own minds and emotions, together with exercises to help them evaluate and guide those emotions. The highly interactive sessions will include small-group discussions based on personal reflections, guided exercises that can be self-explorative (meditative) or communicative (spoken), along with information from published research.
