Resilience is the capacity to rebound, recover and adapt after experiencing significant shocks and be able to retain, strengthen and sustain commitments while maintaining core values and integrity. This course will address the nurturing of personal resilience, the development of community resilience, and the importance of organizational resilience in a rapidly changing and turbulent world.

Discussions will focus on theories and tools of resilience, giving the greatest weight to nurturing personal resilience. Participants will use experiential learning techniques to examine their own lives and become familiar with specific resilience tools as they construct a Personal Resilience Plan based on a provided template.
