Resiliency

Through Caring, Connecting, and Coping


Resiliency is something we want but often do not know how we can help it grow in our own lives. Join us for this 90-minute evening webinar where we will learn about stress and burnout, the power of resilience in getting through the ‘tough stuff’, and how self-compassion and self-care are essential to our well-being. We will discuss strategies for building our own personal supportive networks and inner coping skills to strengthen our ability to ‘bounce back’.
