Bouncing back from challenges through optimism and resilience: Parent Workshop (East Campus)

Workshop Overview

Martin Seligman: “Life inflicts the same setbacks and tragedies on the optimist as on the pessimist, but the optimist weathers them better”

Optimism is a powerful tool. We know that optimists achieve more, live longer and are healthier. Believe it or not, it is possible for everyone to increase their optimism, regardless of their natural disposition.  This workshop unlocked the power of optimism in bouncing back from setbacks more quickly.
