Resilience Session #1: Personal Resilience in Int’l Development ~ Beyond Baths and Journaling

  • November 21, 2019
    9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Resiliency is described as the ability to bounce, persevere, and move through life’s challenges with relative ease.

Resilient people are more likely to remain present and whole in hardship, and make beauty out of suffering- our particularly human ability. Some people seem naturally resilient. We now know that individual and collective resiliency is the product of skills that can be taught.

Join us for a 90-minute introduction to personal resiliency, including three tools that you can practice to increase your resiliency. Connect with your colleagues in practical self-care and the bittersweet pull of faith in healing.

This is the first in a series of workshops on personal, organizational, and global leadership resiliency (including resiliency practices for international field work). Be sure and let us know if you are interested in the rest of the series.
