College is an exciting and stressful time for everyone. The increased freedom and independence are both exciting and daunting, leading many students to struggle in new ways or with emotions that seem to have increased in intensity.
Research has shown that individuals who develop and use resilience strategies and emotion regulation skills are more likely to be effective in their job roles, involved in strong relationships, physically and mentally healthy, and satisfied with their lives overall.
The purpose of this course is to teach undergraduate students skills for having resilience in the face of commonly experienced stressors and difficulties.
