Enhancing Resilience for Yourself and Client Populations
Most stress management efforts focus on relaxation methods, nutrition and exercise interventions, work-life balance programs, or offering employee assistance programs and resources, but many omit resilience training.

A growing body of research on resilience training is showing that people can learn these skills, practice them on a regular basis, and improve emotional and physical health outcomes.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Raquel Garzon, President and Founder of Revitalize Project and Assistant Professor at New Mexico State University for a discussion on the core elements of successful resilience programs.
