Description

Building Resilience as a Community
This workshop, facilitated by Michele Rusinko (Theatre and Dance) provides an introduction to the tools, concepts, and principles of resilience offered by current research in the field of Positive Psychology and Mind-Body Medicine. This course is grounded in the Gustavus Well-being Initiative, which identifies well-being as a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of one's life across multiple dimensions. We will be focusing on both the theory and practice of specific tools and strategies for increasing personal resilience, and on the critical role of resonant relationships in building resilience as a community. Participants will gain an understanding of a slice of the current research in the area of resiliency; develop an understanding of the characteristics of resilient individuals, the role of signature strengths, and the five areas of Post Traumatic Growth; utilize this information to develop strategies to build their own capacity for resiliency, as well as create more resilient environments in the classroom and other work environments; develop a greater sense of grounded optimism and an increased understanding of how to cultivate their personal, as well as community, capacity for resiliency. Questions? Contact Michele Rusinko (mrusinko@gustavus.edu).
Workshop participants will receive a $150 stipend and meals provided. Maximum of 12 participants. Please email expressions of interest to Cathy Blaukat (cblaukat@gustavus.edu).
