Resilience helps us manage life changes, difficulties and failures in healthy ways. Over the coming weeks, the Office of Wellbeing will host a four-part ResilientWake Workshop Series and several single-session SkillShares for faculty and staff to learn and practice skills to better adjust, adapt and cope with challenges and change.
ResilientWake Workshop Series
Faculty and staff are invited to commit to a four-part workshop series on developing and implementing a toolkit of resilience skills.
Sessions will be held on Thursdays, from 12 to 1:15 p.m., beginning April 15.
Single-session ResilientWake SkillShares
Join instructors from the Office of Wellbeing for single-session SkillShares to learn resilience-building skills in the context of living and working through the COVID-19 pandemic, the benefits of routine and tips for practicing daily gratitude. Instructors and participants will cover what resilience is and is not, practice trauma-informed mind-body skills and explore intentional perspectives for navigating these uncertain times.

- Routine and Resilience Building: April 19
- Gratitude, Strengths and Values: April 26 or May 10
