- Topic: Strategies to Build Resilience and Promote Wellness in the Face of Uncertainty
- Presentation Synopsis:
Join Maggie Shamro, Assistant Teaching Professor from TRU’s School of Nursing as she introduces participants to strategies that will build resilience and promote wellness in the face of uncertainty. Maggie will define resilience, explore the current uncertainties in our healthcare environment that can put a strain on our ability to be resilient, and discuss the importance of responding to uncertainty with awareness rather than avoidance. Specific strategies for building self-awareness, self-compassion, mindfulness, and managing heightened or complex emotions will be introduced. Maggie clarifies that resilience does not mean that difficult or uncertain times don’t affect you; true resilience means having the ability to recognize and respond to these times in a way that honours how you are truly feeling.
