“Bouncing Back: Resilience and Veterans”

Resilience is the ability to “bounce back” in the face of life’s challenges. For veterans, these challenges come in a variety of forms such as the challenges of re-entry, challenges involving navigating benefits related to the VA, managing well-being, etc. This workshop will introduce the concept of resiliency and assist veterans in gaining key insights and some skills from the emerging field of resilience so they bounce back more quickly and effectively from life’s setbacks. Through an engaging mix of lecture, exercises, peer interaction, veterans will learn the cognitive, emotional, and social aspects necessary for rising above life adversity and thriving.
