Webinar - Choosing Resilience: A Guide to Fortifying Emotional and Mental Resiliency

For this month's free workshop the Postdoctoral Association of Colorado Boulder has partnered up with the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) for an amazing session given by Stanley Ly, an FSAP Staff Counselor, specialized in counseling and psychological support for individuals experiencing crises. 

The significance of developing emotional and mental resilience has always been important for our overall wellness and balance when we’re encountered with challenges or distress. Perhaps now more than ever, how we stay emotionally resolute, motivated, and adaptable to changing and often uncomfortable circumstances bears tremendous importance. Join us for this engaging conversation on what is emotional resilience, what does neuroscience tell us about how the resilient brain functions, the challenges to resilience, and practical and applicable research-backed skills that build resilience. This 60-minute discussion will include small group breakouts.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Be able to define resiliency and how it affects our recovery from distress
  • Learn about common obstacles to emotional and mental resilience
  • Personally identify 1-3 practical and immediately implementable ways to build emotional and mental resilience
  • Connect and engage with peers and colleagues across the university on this important and relevant matter
