Essential Skills for Navigating Challenging Times
The Essential Skills Webinar Series provides an opportunity to build emotional resilience and psychological flexibility skills to aid in the navigation of any work/life challenges you may be confronting now and in the future.
Participants will be introduced to 3 basic principles of healthy psychological functioning which can provide a new vantage point from which to live your life. This vantage point allows for increased self-awareness, increased access to your innate health and wellbeing, and increased capacity to interrupt conditional thought habits and reactive patterns that make it difficult to respond to life circumstances in a value-guided manner.
The course will also assist participants in navigating burnout, low moods, and offer tips for metabolizing excessive stress. Skills learned in this webinar are equally applicable to your personal and professional lives.
This course is part of the Spartan Resilience Training Program which is centered in the truth that we are all born into pre-existing systems that lift up and benefit people in some social identity groups while systematically marginalizing people in other social identity groups. These systems of oppression have direct and indirect impact on our individual and collective health. The skills set taught in this webinar helps people navigate circumstances related to their own marginalized identities and to build capacity to name and dismantle oppression in our institution’s policies and practice in support of individual and collective health and wellbeing.
Come join this community of learners as we continue to individually and collective navigate these challenging times.
This live webinar is open to MSU Faculty, Staff, Graduate Assistants, Retirees, and the spouses/partners of these groups.
