“Building Resilience by Not ‘Shoulding’ on Yourself”
The way we think about situations and the stories we tell ourselves about them impact our mood, self-confidence, work effectiveness, and relationships.
This workshop, presented by Dr. Stephanie M. Conn, First Responder Psychology, Licensed Psychologist/Author, addresses the oftentimes unconscious and maladaptive manners of thinking and feeling that undermine our resilience. These thoughts may be related to critical incidents such as inappropriate trauma-related guilt. These maladaptive ways of thinking also occur, worsening daily stressors encountered on and off the job.
Strategies for becoming aware of and intentionally countering these resilience thieves are offered to promote resilience during adversities, large and small.
What you will learn:
- Attendees will identify thinking and language patterns that hinder resilience
- Attendees will identify more adaptive, resilience-promoting manners of thinking
