    Ever wonder why people who encounter a similar challenge or crisis may have very different outcomes psychologically? Why do some people find it hard to continue to function, while others seem to become stronger and function amazingly well? This presentation is based on resilience research that explores the characteristics, thoughts, behaviors, and activities that we can incorporate into our lives to increase our resiliency.

    In this presentation:

    • Participants will learn definitions of resilience
    • Participants will learn about resilience research including the characteristics, thoughts, and behaviors we can all learn to incorporate into our lives to increase our personal and professional resiliency.
