Building Resilience to Manage Stress
May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This presentation looks at the part resiliency plays in helping us get through, and cope with, difficult and uncertain times. Resiliency is not a strategy to help you reduce stress but rather it is designed to help you become stronger as a result of experiencing stress. Practicing resiliency helps us learn from stressful events in our lives, adjust and become stronger.
Location: This program will be hosted both in person and remotely
