BRACING FOR HOPE: CENTERING OURSELVES FOR THE RETURN TO “NORMAL”

FIND REAL-LIFE TOOLS FOR THE FUTURE

As the world continues to experiment with a return to school, work, and gatherings we find ourselves managing conflicting emotions and wondering what the new "normal" means. In this four-week live online course, explore a resilience-based positive psychology approach to reducing re-entry anxiety on behalf of ourselves and those we care for, counsel, mentor, and love.

Explore how to handle your emotions effectively, what to do with ruminative thoughts, and practice the tools and perspectives that are activated by the most resilient of us. Develop a clear plan of next steps to ground us in a realistic optimism—one that respects reality while building a bridge to better next moments.

Through guided practice, group discussion, and journaling promotes, you learn

  • What ground optimism looks and feels like
  • Why prioritizing positivity matters
  • How to reduce the negative impact of anxiety, fear, guilt, and other difficult emotions
  • Methods for mindful pausing to help make wise choices.

Note You will have access to the video recording(s) for 30 days after the program ends. All recordings will be available within 72 hours of the end of each session.
