Resilience is our ability to find strength and adapt after something bad happens to us. Even more, it is our ability to move beyond surviving and someday reach for thriving. Resilience can mean to bounce back, which will never mean a complete return to your old-self, but it means you can discover the new version of you and find your "new normal". Sound like a fantasy? How can you "bounce back" when you are dealing with grief and stress every day and you don't even feel like yourself anymore? As you have learned, there are a lot of things about your life that you can’t change but the good news is you can learn to be more resilient.

Join Carrie, a widow and an assistant professor of family and relational communication, for some practical ways to build your resilience, access your resilience, and finally to ROCK your resilience! You will learn what you can do to be more resilient and how to put those skills into practice every day starting now.
