PSYC 300: Psychological Resilience

3 credit hours

Resilience allows us to cope with stress, navigate relationships with other people, pursue opportunities with confidence, and bounce back from setbacks, trauma, and loss. This course examines evidence-based cognitive, emotional, interpersonal, and self-care skills that have been shown to promote psychological health in the face of adversity. Coverage will touch upon resilience-promoting attitudinal and cognitive variables, coping styles, the role of family and social networks, and brain-body mechanisms.
