Have you ever wondered how certain individuals thrive in the face of acute or chronic stresses? Well…you’re not alone! As an active member in the adaptation field, we are already intimately aware of the challenges that people, communities, and systems are faced with when it comes to acute shocks and chronic stresses related to climate change. However, we’re still learning about the measures that individuals are taking to not only get through these challenges, but thrive and learn from life’s challenges. This 1-year cohort will explore the research around personal resilience, discover various traits that resilient individuals can obtain to thrive under various stressful conditions, and participate in exercises to enhance our own resilience. Whether you’re going through a tough time now, are helping individuals in communities get through recent traumas, or you want to be prepared for the next major life event down the road, come join our journey to explore personal resilience and how we can thrive together through this adventure we call life!
