Speaker Series – Christopher Poe – Strengthening Resilience: Resilient Thinking – Webinar – 4/29/2020
RCA Academy is sponsoring this free resilience training featuring Christopher Poe, master resilience specialist from 49 North. In this interactive session, we will learn concrete skills that help participants understand how their thinking drives their behavior, techniques for forward thinking even in the face of stress, change, or uncertainty, and how to strengthen resilient thinking. The skills in the introduction workshop focus on helping participants evaluate the accuracy of their beliefs (and how those beliefs are linked to their emotional and physical reactions), build realistic optimism, and develop realistic appraisals of the source of problems. Through a series of activities, we’ll examine how understanding what is most important can help us prioritize and cultivate positive thinking. We’ll provide a simple, scientific road map for improving your resilience and well-being.
