3-Hour CE Emotional Resilience Online Video Course
Emotional resiliency became a growing topic of research in the aftermath of disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and economic crises. As with almost any type of behavior, resiliency can be learned to help people rebound quickly and more efficiently from any traumatic situation. Resiliency also incorporates recruiting outside resources for support. People who practice resiliency skills are better able to convert experiences of hardships into experiences of increased empowerment, inner strength, and personal meaning. This course defines emotional resilience and differentiates it from survival skills. It identifies many of the core qualities and attitudes of resiliency, and explores specific goals and interventions that help to develop characteristics associated with resiliency. Mindfulness principles that promote resiliency will be discussed.
