Northwestern 10.27.20 VIRTUAL It’s Hard to Drink From an Empty Well: Building Resilience

This active learning session will introduce participants to Plan for Resilience. A resource developed by Workplace Strategies for Mental Health that is a great tool to facilitate with staff to foster personal awareness and support resilience. This tool helps an individual reflect on what their current stressors are (work or personal), how they react to stress  (emotionally/physically), activities they can do each week to improve their resilience, and practical ways they can address current life stressors. This tool can help employees who are feeling stuck or like they’ve lost a sense of control to take proactive measures to combat stressors.

  • Participants will become more aware of their symptoms of stress, allowing them to intervene early. 
  • Participants will reflect on strategies they can use to reduce stress, or increase energy. 
  • Participants will pin point one of their current stressors, and develop a strategy for how they can address it.
