Wellbeing Series - Part 2: Building Resilience - HP236

This is the second session of a three-part wellbeing series. Check out Part 1: Self-Care 101 and Part 3: Workplace Wellbeing.

As we face the constant flux of change and complex challenges, it's important to look at how we build our personal resilience. Resilience is foundational to the prevention of stress and to increase our capacity to cope with and recover from adverse events. It is also recognized as a key component in effective leadership. The good news is that resilience is something that can be learned and developed.

This interactive session will provide an opportunity to talk about the current state of employee mental health in Canada, explore the core components of resilience, and share evidence-based strategies and resources for building resilience.

Participants will be able to:

  • Define resilience and the core components of resilience;
  • Identify and apply strategies to build resilience; and
  • Identify relevant resources and services.
  • All staff, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows are welcome.

    This session will be facilitated by Crystal Hutchinson, Workplace Wellbeing Strategist in UBC's Human Resource Department.
