CSU’s Got Talent Online Training: Understanding and Achieving Resilience to Face Challenges

Nearly 1 in 5 Americans say they have a physical reaction when thinking about the pandemic. This kind of stress puts our body and brain on high alert, intensifying negative emotions and causing restless nights and unproductive days. All humans have a built-in negativity bias, which undermines a more rational approach to challenges thrust upon us. Those challenges go beyond the threat of the virus itself by drastically altering our normal routines. You’ll learn how to combat stress by recognizing emotional triggers and utilizing proven strategies for changing your mindset and behaviors. This isn’t about simply “bouncing back” from adversity-it’s about “bouncing forward” because of it.
