TOPIC:  Resiliency

Join the Ithaca Branch to learn the six competencies that make up resiliency: self-awareness, self-regulation, optimism, mental agility, strength of character, and connection. Participants will learn a set of skills that will enhance their effectiveness and well-being by building their mental toughness. These skills will also develop your ability to understand the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors of yourself and others.
