  • Faculty Resilience: Evidence-Based Practices to Start Today

    Mindfulness Practices to Cultivate Personal Resilience
    Participants learn a framework for conceptualizing mindfulness, with an emphasis on practical practice in everyday life. Benefits include improved concentration and memory, buffering against the harmful effects of stress, and improved interpersonal relationships.

    Conscious Communication for Better Relationships
    Participants learn a needs-based approach to communication toward a goal of greater likelihood of satisfaction experienced by both people in an interaction. Accordingly, a focus on difficult conversations and potentially conflictual interactions is included.
