4-Part Series: Emerging from Challenging Times with Strength and ResilienceMonday, 13 September, 2021 6:00 pm
The past year and a half brought challenges from all directions: a pandemic, economic hardship, a painful racial reckoning, political turmoil and civil unrest. How do we hit the “reset” button in order to move forward with strength and resilience? In this 4-part series, Lindsay Bira, PhD, clinical health psychologist, teaches you how to maximize your growth and wellbeing, and build wisdom from past experiences.
September 13: Set Your Intentions (in a way that works)
It’s been a year (and more!). How do we hit the “reset” button in order to move forward with strength and resilience? With every new season of life come new resolutions, but most people don't end up achieving them. Why? It's about approach and intention! Attend this webcast to help you frame and maximize your growth for the future, no matter what it may bring.
September 20: Reflections: How to Shift Stress into Growth
In the research we discuss posttraumatic stress versus posttraumatic growth, and in therapy, we help people turn stress into growth with research-based strategies. The past 18 months brought many challenges. Attend this webcast to ensure you are maximizing your growth and building wisdom from experiences over the last year.
September 27: Shaking the Tough Stuff: Sleep Issues, Bad Habits, & Guilt/Regret
If you're human and alive, you will get into unhelpful patterns. Sleep issues are commonly experienced, bad habits are part of living, and often, guilt and regret haunt us. These things also feed into each other. Attend this webcast to learn some quick tips & tricks based on research to break patterns and maximize wellbeing.
October 4: Looking Forward: Resilience & Evolution
It can be difficult to make sense of harsh realities, trauma, and suffering. It is easier when we iron out questions related to WHY and develop a self-truth that points us in the right existential direction. That promotes resilience. Attend this webcast to dig into that question and support the collective mission of resilience and evolution.
REGISTRATION: More information coming this summer!
