A Full Life: Pathways to Resilience
Wednesday – Oct 23
What makes a good life? Come to learn about the three pathways to well-being supported by research in positive psychology: pleasure, engagement, and meaning. Having these in your life helps you to be more resilient and have a greater sense of well-being. You will have the opportunity to assess which pathways you are currently pursuing in your life and ones that are missing. Tips will be provided on how to utilize these pathways to move toward a more balanced and full life. Join in this interactive and informative workshop.
Wednesday – Oct 30
Learn about maintaining effective physical self-care practices, including eating well, exercise, and sleeping habits.

Engage in relevant discussions, complete your own self-care assessment, and take away a self-drafted plan to implement in your life.
Wednesday – Nov6
