Upcoming Events
Adapting With Resilience Through Character Strengths Workshop
Description: All character strengths influence resilience. In this interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to the Character Strengths and Virtues, a framework of positive psychology founded by Martin Seligman and Christopher Peterson, with the intention of helping individuals “identify their strengths and use them to increase and sustain their wellbeing.” in other words, flourish. Through led discussion, guided meditation, and journaling, etc., participants will reflect upon challenges experienced in the most recent semester that may have led them to feel out of balance. They will discover and/or deepen their understanding of their top five strengths and learn to channel them in order to move through anticipated challenges in the upcoming semester.

Understanding and Applying Mindfulness towards Resilience
Description: Drawing from her research into mindfulness, Peggilee Wupperman will help correct common misconceptions and share a basic explanation of how mindfulness could be helpful for faculty. We will use this framework to explore mindfulness practices that participants can use on their own with Q&A following each of the mindfulness practices, and culminating in a discussion of how these practices could be tailored to fit individual needs and incorporated into daily life. Participants will be prepared to engage visually and through conversation as part of the workshop.
