GEN_ST 297 (O/P) 2-credit: The purpose of this course is to teach students how to become more resilient. Stated simply, resilience is the ability to survive and thrive. Resiliency is not only about your ability to positively adapt in the face of adverse or challenging circumstances (that is, survive), but it is also about learning the positive skills, strategies and routines that enable you to live a happy, fulfilling, and successful life (in other words, thrive). This course will help give you the permission to take care of yourself in order to manage stress and optimize your wellbeing and performance as a student. This captures the notion of performing from the inside out, which is a phrase that highlights the importance of promoting core resilience skills, strategies, and routines among students.
