From Surviving to Thriving: Developing Personal and Academic Resilience
A Half Day Workshop for Post-Secondary Students to Address Stress and Resiliency
Developing the Capacity to Adapt, Cope and Recover
This half day workshop can help you move from merely surviving your post-secondary experience to actually thriving by helping you build resilience and plan for stressful situations. Developing a plan to get through potentially stressful situations can have a positive impact on both your personal and academic life. Many of us juggle personal, family, social, financial, workplace, and school demands. While we try to manage, any of us could be blindsided by an unexpected situation or feel overwhelmed when too many stressors happen at once.
Analyzed by McMaster University in 2017 and then piloted by Queen's University in early 2019, this evidence based session aims to understand resiliency, address our own automatic responses to stress, utilize the tools that serve us or begin to understand our old patterns of behaviour that do not.
This program is facilitated by The CAST Projects Director of Operations and trained facilitator, Becca Partington, a contract faculty member at Durham College who works regularly with post - secondary students in preparation for the social services field.
The half day session costs $350 + HST and includes access to all resources and worksheets for students.

We look forward to connecting with your academic department and supporting your students to thrive in the face of stress and adversity!
