Building Resilience

Tuesdays, July 5 – August 23 

6:00 – 7:30 PM

Suggested donation: $80

In his book Resilient Rick Hanson, Ph.D. (psychologist) states:

There’s a fundamental idea in psychology and medicine that the path your life takes depends on just three causes: how you manage your challenges, protect your vulnerabilities and increase your resources. These causes are in three places: your world, your body, and your mind. . . [developing] resources in the mind has a unique power.  It offers the greatest opportunity, since you usually have more influence over your mind than over your body or world.  It also offers the greatest impact, since you take your mind with you wherever you go.  You can’t always count on the world, other people, or even your own body.  But you can count on durable inner strengths hardwired into your nervous system . . .

This class will help you develop mental resources that increase resilience: the ability to cope with adversity and push through challenges.
