  • Introduction

    The Strengths-Based Resilience program is designed to help you develop resilience, defined as the ability to cope with adversity. The program invites you to reflect actively on your experiences that demonstrate various aspects of your resilience. By reflecting back on these experiences, and engaging in other exercises, you will learn skills and strategies to build your resilience.

    Our educational system focuses on improving overall rates of academic achievement. Challenges above are not likely to be resolved by academics alone. Immunization from these challenges is neither possible nor desired. To deal adaptively with these universal life challenges, we need resilience.
