The Power of Resilience: How to Bounce Back and Stay Positive
Why is it that two people can face the exact same type of situation, and have completely different responses? The answer may have to do with attitude and resilience. Resilience is not genetic; rather it is something that you can learn. Steven Southwick, Professor of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, and author of the book, Resilience: The Science of Mastering Life’s Greatest Changes, and co-author Dennis Charney, Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, have identified a number of factors shared by people who have the ability to bounce back most effectively from life’s disappointments – not just once, but over and over. In this session you will discover simple, effective ways for you to be more resilient as well.
WHAT IS LINKS: LINKS is an acronym for Leads, Information, Networking, Know-how, and Strategies. It is an educational and motivational program designed to help candidates prepare for the week ahead and to share conversation, contacts, and job-search information in a relaxed, welcoming environment. For the unemployed professional, LINKS is a “place to go” to focus on the job search when others go to work on Monday Mornings. LINKS sessions are free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
