Section Information for Fall 2015

What is resilience and how can we build it? What conditions allow individuals and communities to develop greater levels of resilience in response to adversity, challenges, and barriers?  How is it that some individuals and organizations thrive in these conditions while others languish?  What processes can individuals and organizations employ to effectively respond to rapid change, internal and external pressures, and set-backs? In this course, students will explore the many ways in which resilience can be learned and developed on individual, community, and organizational levels, and how resilience promotes growth and restores efficacy and agency, leading to higher levels of flourishing. This course is designed to engage students in active learning through exposure to the growing literature and research on well-being and resilience, combined with tools used to facilitate resilience in individual and group contexts. Students will learn how to apply concepts related to resilience and well-being to all types of careers and in all dimensions of life.
