Resilience: A Positive Psychology Approach to Difficult Moments

MONDAY, AUGUST 31, 2020, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Location: Yellowjacket Union Great Room

The life well-lived is periodically a life of tumult, unexpected pain or loss. Yet the keys exist to unlock the doors of our own resiliency and those we care for - keys that enable us to strengthen our strengths, increase optimism and direct our energies toward that which is life-sustaining. Exploring the principles and practices of Positive Psychology we'll consider what to do when our thoughts are ruminative or negative, when we are in conflict or, when we experience fear or anxiety. Attendees will leave with pragmatic and easily applied tools that enable each of us to increase a sense of inner capacity and to build that capacity within our homes and with our teams at work.
