Resilience is defined as the ability to ‘bounce back’ from challenging life circumstances. Do you sometimes feel more like a deflated kickball than a bright bouncing handball? Have you wondered who comes up with the descriptions and explanations of the concept of resilience…have they personally experienced the death of THEIR person? Just the phrase ‘bounce back’ might make you mad!

 

Dr. Carrie West is both a professor who has dedicated her time to the study of resilience, and also a woman who was widowed suddenly at the age of 29 while raising two small children. In this workshop, Dr. West blends her personal experience with her professional expertise to help you apply the theory of resilience to your daily life. Learn how to include daily resilience building practices that will help you feel empowered and capable of handling your life while also making room for grieving and self-care.
