Building Personal Resilience: Self-Regulation

2021/12/06 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This suite of workshops is designed to help you strengthen your resiliency by learning and practicing cognitive science-based tools, and techniques that foster greater “bounce-back” ability. You will experience how a positive and agile mindset, and the ability to self-regulate, will bolster your capacity to communicate, manage conflict and act in productive ways in the midst of challenge and stress. You will have opportunities to explore your ingrained thinking habits and will learn how to adopt a resilient mindset. You will leave each workshop with greater self-awareness and a few key behaviors that will result in positive outcomes across all areas of your life.

About the Self-Regulation Workshop:
In this 2-hour workshop, you will learn what self-regulation is and explore its role in managing your emotions, physiology, and state of mind. You will learn techniques that will increase your capacity to calm yourself down and think clearly in moments where you’re feeling negative emotions such as fear, sadness, frustration, or anger. You’ll leave this workshop with key self-regulation techniques that you can begin applying on a daily basis.
